In the PBS NewsHour’s brief news wrap feature on May 10, its viewers received “grim” news of a worldwide rise of CO2 levels, and were treated to similar news again on Monday (6th paragraph). As I reported last year right here at JS, that’s all we’ve ever heard from them about global warming. But did a particular admission in their climate change report last night undermine their entire narrative?
See “Could Agriculture Bloom in the Desert? Qatar Works to Invent an Innovative Oasis” and its gem of a quote about how an ‘innovative’ greenhouse complex in the desert functions (bold emphasis added):
The design is meant to mimic a natural ecosystem, where the waste product from one component provides the food or fuel for another. … Seawater runs through cardboard panels, cooling the air in this greenhouse, where cucumbers grow in coconut fiber. And CO2 is pumped in from the factory next door, making the plants grow dramatically faster.
Hmmmm. Worldwide Medieval Warm Period, anyone?
