    The edit gives a quite accurate message. The tax will take their jobs. Oil exporters will sell their oil to countries that have lower carbon taxes and can therefore produce more goods for trade. There goes the jobs.

    Klamz: Carbon Dioxide is not pollution, it`s plant food. CO2 is used in a lot of manufacturing processes and it`s beneficial not harmful.

    I`m guessing you`re the type of eco-nut that would ban Di-Hydrogen MonoOxide as well.

    Everything in excess is harmful. And having a grasp on reality doesn`t make you a nutjob.

    If I didn`t know you so well CJ, I`d swear you were trolling. Unfortunately the reality is far worse.

    davymid: Please tell me what happens to plants in an atmosphere with higher than normal CO2 levels ?

    Answer: They grow faster AND produce more oxygen while doing so.

    More CO2 means more algae, which means more plankton, more fish, etc.. it`s beneficial. Earth keeps itself in balance and has done so surviving through volcanoes that make mankind`s minute effect on pollution seem like a drop in the bucket.

    The great prairies of America regularly caught on fire, for months at a time, before the white man came and started farming.

    If you`re so worried about CO2, go after the biggest polluters first, China and India, We`ve got more than enough regulations on it here.

    GODDAMMIT CRAKRJAK! Now you’re arguing marine geology/geochemistry with a guy with a PhD in the subject. There’s no way of saying that without coming across as an arsehole.

    Look, lemme preface this by saying I have no particular opinion on cap-and-trade, regulated CO2 reductions etc. I’m no CO2 alarmist, but I do say we need to watch it. And I actually agree with you that it’s a bit silly to regulate CO2 emissions in the western world when China is building (last I checked) new coal-fired power stations at the rate of one per week. But that’s all politics. Hey, I recycle, I use energy-efficient light-bulbs etc, but that’s my choice and that’s besides the point.

    What I’m talking about here is science, and you’re pissing me off, because you’re wrong, ignorant and ill-informed again.

    It’s not simply a case of higher CO2 levels meaning more algae, meaning more plankton, meaning more fish, meaning Utopia on earth. Sorry dude, but that’s straight out of the Bill O’Reilly playbook of “Tides come in, tides go out. You can’t explain that” level of scientific ignorance. You know for a fact that the ecosystem is more complex than that. You might as well say “Well, plants need sunlight as well as CO2. So it would be beneficial to the planet if it were moved 20% closer to the sun.” You must know that there are many other feedback loops within that system.

    And I KNOW you’re smarter than that. Which leaves me with two possible conclusions: either you’re burying your head in the sand with simplistic grade-school scientific bullsh*t of “more CO2 = good!” when you know the system to be more complex than that, or you’re deliberately trying to deceive people.

    It’s not a case of higher CO2 levels -> more algae -> Beneficial. High levels of CO2 have been known to cause Algal Blooms, which in many cases are highly toxic to life. In extreme cases, they have led to Global Oceanic Anoxic Events at various points throughout geological time. These are directly correlated to high CO2 levels (as you correctly point out, through periods of high volcanic activity). These are periods when the entire circulatory system of the world’s oceans stagnates, stratifies, and result in mass extinctions due to low oxygenation of the waters because of high CO2 levels. Happened several times in the Cretaceous, the end-Jurassic and in the Palaeozoic.

    I know about these because I work in oil and gas exploration, and they make for excellent source rocks. Believe me, I understand these systems, and have published several p

    Point is, blanket stating that “CO2 is beneficial not harmful” is a deeply retarded statement to make, and simplifies complex systems to the point where it’s scientifically meaningless. Oceanic Anoxic Events, due to an overabundance of CO2 deoxygenizing our oceans are very real, the evidence being the gasoline you put in your car engine and the TV that comes on when you flick the switch. Good for us in this day and age, but I wouldn’t have wanted to be around when one was going on.

    Lastly, don’t underestimate the volume of CO2 that humans are pumping out. Not being alarmist, but best scientific evidence from DSDP (Deep Sea Drilling Project) wells and geological outcrop studies indicate that these global OAE events are likely to occur when CO2 levels get into the 1000ppm range. We’re currently at 400ppm. The present level is higher than at any time during the last 800 thousand years, and likely higher than in the past 20 million years.

    Yeah yeah, I know, shutting up now. Just to give some food for thought to those who say “but we mere humans couldn’t possibly affect the overall CO2 balance in the atmosphere, earth will heal itself, we’re only small beer etc”. The Eyjafjallajökull eruption in Iceland last year which sent up the ash-cloud over the North Atlantic and grounded all flights between Europe and North America for a week or so, saw slightly less global CO2 production that day from grounded airplanes planes than the volcano put into the atmosphere, as recorded by satellites. Which, when you think about it, made it the world’s first carbon-neutral volcano.

    And if that doesn’t convince you, just fire up Google Earth, and have a walk around.

    Anyways, not setting off any alarm bells, but just some food for thought.

    Finally, CJ, wise the f*ck up on your science.
