Dear PZ: I'll see your environmental imbecile and raise you another one.

It was only a matter of time before PZ discovered this intellectual cripple, who dismisses CO2-based global warming thusly:

It's plant food ... So if we decrease the use of carbon dioxide, are we not taking away plant food from the atmosphere? ... So all our good intentions could be for naught. In fact, we could be doing just the opposite of what the people who want to save the world are saying.

Not bad, PZ, but that will still never match Blogging Tory Frank "Mr. Potato Head" Hilliard, who cautions us not to get so excited about water "shortages":

The truth is, of course, the amount of water in the world is the same as it's always been. The oceans, the water aloft and the icecaps; all there. The rain will continue, the rivers will flow, the snow will fall. No matter what the loony environmentalists have to say, and no matter how long they say it, the cycle will continue.

I'm not clicking on those links because I don't want my brain to shrink.

It's time Stephen Taylor is held to account. As a paid conservative operative, he must be clear on whether or not the chorus of climate change deniers at the Blogging Tories represent party policy.

Like Sooey said. No freakin' way I'm gonna waste time and risk brain shrinkage on Mr. Hilliard, in particular.
I'm reminded of a ridiculous argument I've come across more than once from the wrong right: Melting ice caps can't raise sea levels because, after all, when an ice cube melts in a glass of water the water level doesn't rise.


I'm all for global warming.

Go, Go CO2, yeah team!
