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

Fact Check:   'Joe Biden Claims ‘We Didn’t Lock People Up In Cages’

CLAIM: Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed, on immigration: “We didn’t lock people up in cages.”

VERDICT: FALSE. The “cages” were built by the Obama-Biden administration.

Univision moderator Jorge Ramos asked Biden at the third Democrat debate at Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas, why Latinos should trust him after the Obama administration continued deporting “undocumented immigrants.”

Biden claimed that the Obama administration’s policies were more humane than those of President Donald Trump: “We didn’t lock people up in cages,” he said.

In fact, the “cages” were built by the Obama administration to deal with a surge of unaccompanied minors who crossed the border illegally in 2014.

Originally, the Obama administration was “warehousing” children — literally — in overwhelmed Border Patrol facilities. Breitbart News broke the story of the surge, which was partly triggered by Obama’s policy of allowing illegal alien children who entered the country as minors to stay in the country (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA).

The above photo was published by the Associated Press in June 2014, and the photo below is of Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, touring a Border Patrol facility with “cages.”

The “cages” are chain-link enclosures in Border Patrol processing facilities that are meant to protect children from adults in custody. They are not permanent accommodations.

In mid-2018, as the Trump administration began enforcing a “zero tolerance” policy that stopped the “catch-and-release” policy of letting illegal aliens go after they were arrested. Detaining adults and children meant that children had to be processed separately; the enclosures prevented adults from harming children.

As Breitbart News reported at the time, children were not housed in “cages.” They were processed and then taken to shelters, where they were given medical care, toiletries, education, recreation, and counseling, and where staff attempted to find relatives or sponsors to whom they could be released.

Democrats began tweeting images of “kids in cages” to condemn the Trump administration. Journalists, too, shared those images.

One problem: they were taken during the Obama administration.

Public outrage at the images led President Trump to end the policy, and require families to be detained together.

Democrats keep repeating the mistake, however: in July, they had to delete a tweet that used an image from the Obama era and cited the “inhumane treatment” of children by the Trump administration.

Republicans argue that not detaining illegal aliens is actually the cruel policy, because it encourages migrants to undertake a dangerous journey, often guided by cartels and smugglers.

As Breitbart News’ Alana Mastrangelo noted recently:

But what’s worse than “cages,” however, are reports of migrant children also being handed over to human traffickers during the Obama administration — while Biden was vice president — according to the New York Times. Between October 2013 and July 2015 alone, nearly 80,000 unaccompanied children from Central American countries were detained by U.S. authorities.

It remains unclear how many of the tens of thousands of children were handed over to human traffickers — including sex traffickers — during that span of nearly two years, as those cases are reportedly not tracked.

“Others were ransomed by the very smugglers to whom their families paid thousands of dollars to sneak them into the United States,” reported the New York Times in 2015, during Obama’s presidency and Biden’s vice presidency. “Some lost limbs during the journey or found themselves sold into sexual slavery.”

Biden told voters in South Carolina last month that he would close all border detention facilities, guaranteeing that the migrant flow would continue.
