First, United Nations officials label bacon and deli meats as carcinogens, and now scientists are claiming that higher concentrations of carbon dioxide are not only heating the planet, they’re making people dumber.

new study by the Harvard School of Public Health claims “carbon dioxide (CO2) has a direct and negative impact on human cognition and decision-making,” according to ThinkProgress, a left-wing advocacy website.

Former Vice President Al Gore wasted no time tweeting out ThinkProgress’ in-depth article, trying to link higher carbon dioxide levels to lower cognition in humans.

Sounds like more crackpot nonsense so the phony climate change people can continue on their road to steal money from hard working Americans.  On the other hand, world governments have to stop the destruction of the planet's rain forests which God made for all of us and from which we all benefit.

if you're referring to the belief that the rainforests are the lungs of earth, you might find it interesting that satellite data shows rainforests are self contained environments; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OSRgKKoLLiQ

It's a two hour Nova show, interesting stuff throughout. Plankton is more the lungs of earth than rainforests are.

World governments are actually the problem, not the solution. The very core of their land management 'settled science' is assbackwards wrong, and causing desertification of large swaths of earth's growing temperature belt;

it's only 22 minutes long, and very telling about how government is NOT the solution

Sorry, let's face it, it's the education al system that's making them dumber.

Leaded gasoline did a lot more damage then CO2 ever will. We exhale Co2!  it is a natural substance and part of human breathing.

I submit to you that people that eat food all die. Is food the cause?

Think Progress is a George Soros financed group!

Another think tank of fools. These scientists really seem to think that they are so much smarter than the average person. Just to get another government grant, which incidentally comes out of we the peoples wallets. Pretty sad.

So they're basing this on 24 people (who were probably already dumb) exposed to different levels of CO2 for 6 days. Betting that cost Taxpayers huge $$$$. Nevermind, it all boils down to control & $$$$.

Sorry that honor goes to public education not CO2

There may be some truth to this. Look how many people actually believe everything these nuts say and are willing to pay their hard earned cash for it. After all, it could not have anything to do with the Democrat run education system.

These people are IDIOTS. God made this world.He knew exactly what he was doing with the first blueprint. If people think about the life cycle of weather God was the perfect artist. Think about the water cycle.A complete evaporation collector the clouds, As clouds move by winds along the way they scrub the air, Picking up dust.Then when they get dirty and heavy it rains.Then the rain soaks in to a filter, The dirt,water moves in the soil till it finds a resting place.Also feeding the other part of our natural filter.The trees and bushes, Capturing CO2 emissions, pollution Gathered from the air by the winds moving the branches and leaves in the wind.And as a thank you the trees give us oxygen.The perfect machine.Point blank.

This link takes you to a more believable Harvard study..... a 12 year study of 100,000 people that demonstrates conservatives have significantly higher IQ's than liberals. It offers an explanation for this studies experts

ALERT ALERT

YIKES!!! Chelsea Clinton Emphatically States A Person With A Beard And A Penis Can ‘Absolutely’ Identify As A Woman

  • The one issue Hillary and Chelsea don’t appear to agree on entirely is transgender self-identification
  • In an interview with The Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the Clintons about transgender self-identification
  • Chelsea Clinton replied ‘yes’ emphatically when asked if someone with a beard and penis can ever be a woman
  • ‘It’s going to take a lot more time and effort to understand what it means to be defining yourself differently,’ Hillary said
  • Aitkenhead said Hillary became ‘uneasy’ when the question was asked while Chelsea shot a ‘furious stare’ at the journalist as her mother answered
  • Hillary added: ‘It’s a very big generational discussion, because this is not something I grew up with or ever saw’

(Daily Mail) – It may appear Hillary and Chelsea Clinton always see eye-to-eye, but in a recent interview one topic cracked the facade of the like-minded mother-daughter power duo.

The one issue Hillary and Chelsea don’t appear to agree on entirely is transgender self-identification.

In an interview with The Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the Clintons if someone with a beard and a penis can ever be a woman, to which Chelsea replied emphatically, ‘Yes.’

However, as Aitkenhead describes it, Hillary looked ‘uneasy’, and blamed generational gaps for being less accepting.

‘Errr. I’m just learning about this,’ Hillary responded. ‘It’s a very big generational discussion, because this is not something I grew up with or ever saw. It’s going to take a lot more time and effort to understand what it means to be defining yourself differently.’

The Clintons sat sown with Aitkenhead to promote the book they co-authored, The Book of Gutsy Women: Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience.

The book features Danica Roem, the first trans woman elected to a U.S. state legislature.

According Aitkenhead’s account, she tells Hillary during the interview that many British feminists of Hillary’s generation have a problem with the idea that a ‘lesbian who doesn’t want to sleep with someone who has a penis is transphobic.’

Hillary nods in agreement, while Chelsea ‘stiffens and stares at me’, according to Aitkenhead.

The journalist then adds that many women of Hillary’s generation are uncomfortable with biological males sharing women’s bathrooms.

‘I would say that, absolutely,’ Hillary nods firmly. ‘Absolutely. Yes.’

That’s when Chelsea begins shooting a ‘furious stare’ at Aitkenhead, who points it out to her.

‘I’m a terrible actor’, Chelsea laughs.

Chelsea then says she is thrilled with the National Health Service’s decision to assign patients to single-sex wards according to the gender they identify as, instead of their biological make up.

‘How can you treat someone if you don’t recognize who they feel and know in their core they are?’ Chelsea says.

‘And I strongly support children being able to play on the sports teams that match their own gender identity,’ she adds. ‘I think we need to be doing everything we can to support kids in being whoever they know themselves to be and discovering who they are.’

At this point Hillary looks conflicted.

‘I think you’ve got to be sensitive to how difficult this is,’ Hillary says. ‘There are women who’d say [to a trans woman], ”You know what, you’ve never had the kind of life experiences that I’ve had. So I respect who you are, but don’t tell me you’re the same as me.” I hear that conversation all the time.’

Despite the clear tension in the room, the pair say they don’t argue about this topic.

But according to Aitkenhead, ‘I get the impression they don’t like to present anything less than a united front to the world.’
