Republican lawmaker: Reducing carbon emissions will kill all the trees and plants



A Republican lawmaker in Colorado believes that environmental measures to reduce carbon emissions will kill off plant life. During during a talk radio appearance last week, state Sen. Jerry Sonnenberg explained why he opposed efforts to curb the emission of greenhouse gases by taxing them.

“So, you know, when we talk about carbon dioxide and those type of things, actually, those are important to agriculture and to the balance of nature,” he explained. “Trees and plants use carbon dioxide to create oxygen. It’s part of their process. And it’s nature’s way to make things work. So I guess my argument to those enviros that want less carbon is, ‘Here, you want to kill all the trees and plants.'”

7. The stupid. It burns.

No, you imbecile. What kills the trees is the clear-cutting of our forests by corporations you have permitted to rape and pillage our resources.

8. Standard mind-pickling technique. People are now seeing trees die,

so time to change from claiming there's no greenhouse gas effect to claiming there's not enough.

11. Plants, Animals and People Need Water Too

which explains why people in the Houston area were sooo fortunate to have 50 inches of rain in 2 or 3 days last summer from Hurricane Harvey. Good for the fishies and squitos as well!!

12. Well his goddamned skull is evidently vacuum-packed. Not even an air molecule in there.

So maybe that explains -- something. Hmm?
