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

YUP: President Trump Signs Great And Beautiful Trump Border Wall During Tour In San Diego

Embedded video

President Donald Trump visited the San Diego border on Wednesday to show off a newly constructed portion of the wall after a fundraising trip in California.

“It’s an amazing project,” Trump said, pointing to the 30-foot high barrier constructed with steel and concrete, noting that it also went six feet underground.

“If you think you’re going to cut it with a blow torch, that doesn’t work, because you hit the concrete, and then if you think you’re going to go through the concrete, that doesn’t work because we have very powerful rebar inside,” Trump said.

The president traveled via motorcade after a fundraiser to Otay Mesa, a community outside San Diego on the United States -Mexico border to review the latest constructed physical barrier.

He pointed out the new wall structure to the press, which was 24 miles of primary and secondary wall at the border.

“We have it covered underground, we have it covered overground,” Trump said.

The president was joined by acting Department of Homeland security Kevin McAllen and several other border security officials.

He said that over 44,000 bollard panels had been set up for the wall, which was then filled with concrete and rebar.

Trump admitted that he envisioned a solid concrete wall when he campaigned for president, but he was told by border officials that they preferred a wall constructed by concrete-filled bollards so they could see through it.

“It’s hardened concrete, very powerful concrete,” Trump said, pointing to the structure.

He added that the steel wall was designed to retain heat, making it harder to climb, plus having an anti-climbing system at the top.

“You can fry an egg on that wall,” he said. The president also acknowledged to reporters that he wanted the wall to be painted black and have spikes but said it was cheaper to let it remain naturally rust-colored.

“We can paint it later,” he said.

The president discussed his growing understanding of border barriers, noting that the Southern border would not need much more than 500 miles of wall to secure the border. He cited the existence of natural mountain and river barriers that prevented criminals from crossing. He did not rule out building additional barriers in the future but said it would depend on whether it was needed.

One border patrol agent spoke about the importance of the border wall to all of the agents, thanking the president for pushing forward on construction.

Trump said he met with Border Patrol prior to constructing the wall, picking the most effective structures to protect the border.

One border security official scoffed at the idea that the wall was a “vanity” project for the president.

“There’s a false narrative out there that this wall is the president’s vanity wall,” he said. “I’m here to tell you right now that that is false.”

He thanked Trump for listening to border patrol agents during the planning and construction process.

“You listened to the agents and you gave them exactly what they asked for,” he said.

One official with Trump confirmed that the structure was funded with regular Congressional appropriations in the FY 2017 and FY 2018 and that that the new wall replaced an inferior structure.

Trump said that he still considered the situation on the border a national emergency, but as more wall went up he could withdraw military forces.

“I hope you’re impressed,” he told reporters as he took questions about the project.

One worker told Trump of a tradition of workers signing the wall if they worked on the wall.

“I’ll sign it,” Trump said, and went to the wall and signed the steel barrier with a marker before encouraging other officials present to do the same.
