Plants on the land and seas take in CO2, down to the modern lmit of 2 parts per million. In the Jurassic it was 4ppm. So how was life then?
There was 65% more of it, and sea levels were 60 meters LOWER in a warm period. There were 3 natural ice-ages, with CO2 at 8ppm.
So as we burn the Fossil Fuels, within 5 minutes the CO2 ends up as plant biomass.
This equation tells us that photosynthesis is nuclear fusion, goes on in plants down to 0oC. Don't get smug – your heart does Molecular Nuclear Fusion. Which is why you can take your pulse with a Geiger counter, and you breath out Helium: no chemical source.
Nuclear fusion down to 0oC – not 10 million. Biology are the experts on nuclear fusion on Earth. Physics should not get the nuclear fusion money – grass in the light does nuclear fusion.
Building the carbohydrate takes in energy – it is only due to the energy release from the nuclear fusion, the net process is massively exothermic.
So biology limits CO2 levels in the air – they double in natural ice-ages. So CO2 does not warm the air. It reacts to the wax and wane of plants.
The Jurassic had a 650 million year ice-age, with CO2 at 8ppm.
Lets get this clear. The global air contains 2ppm CO2. Higher levels are only possible at diesel exhausts. I got on to a mob which said there was 400ppm CO2 in the global air. They down graded their number to 200ppm. This is rubbish! CO2 would cycle through the day and night. But they stuck to exact 100s. Nature does not do exact numbers. No location or date. So not real data at all.
I told them that photosynthesis proceeds every day until there is only 2ppm CO2 in the air. Mankind's CO2 use to be active biology, and makes up 0.00004% of the daily CO2.
A forest fire or volcanic eruption is 20.000 as potent a source of CO2, and within 2 days is gone.
Each day back to 2ppm. No gradual increase in CO2. That is brain dead nuclear fiction, designed to scare the stupid.
My favourite energy system is a steam plasma tuning regular water into massive heat, with a little light and X-rays.
A 50x1cm steam plasma tube produces 1.2 W for a year – from 10-17cc of regular water. Non toxic and free. No CO2 – but nuclear power dare not talk about it.
A 100 MW Molecular Nuclear Fusion power station will consume 1.8x10-16c of regular water a year. No plutonium or strontium produced. Water falls produce strontium, as they do Molecular Nuclear Fusion.
A uranium nuclear plant, hyper toxic, costing 18 billion. It requires insurance of 100 billion. No insurance above 1 billion is available – so nuclear power makes do with 50 million – so illegal. And you may well pay with your life.
