There’s a rise in green disinformation and CO2 emissions greenwashing with the goal of discrediting global warming science in order to thwart environmental regulations and cap and trade.
CO2 is Green, a pending 501-c4 non-profit social welfare organization, asserts that CO2 is not a pollutant and that the environment will be harmed if it is reduced. In their sister site, Plants Need CO2, they set out to "educate the public on the positive effects of additional atmospheric CO2."
Another site, I Love Carbon Dioxide, delivers the message in a video to make the point that, "extreme environmentalism is damaging the lives of vulnerable people." They assert that environmentalists harm human quality of life and that everything from banning DDT to combating global warming is wrong.
The pro-CO2 sites may be in part, a reaction to the United Nations Climate Change Conference scheduled for Copenhagen in December.
