Not good for plants or us

Often you will hear idiotic climate change deniers such as Rupert Murdoch saying that carbon dioxide is ‘good for plants’. Of course, this is based on their limited school-level knowledge of plant physiology. At that level of understanding, plants ‘inhale’ carbon dioxide and ‘exhale’ oxygen.

The Morrison Equation

A certain G. Dixon has said: “Scott Morrison couldn’t lead a dog on a leash. He’s a follower. He waits for someone else to do and say something, and if it looks like it might be a goer, he rides on their coat tails; then he calls press conferences to big note himself and take the credit”1.

However, again they had to back down when they realised the data showed that assertion was equine ordure.

In early April of 2020, I wrote a very short article advocating the wearing of face masks, and it was largely based on a paper in Nature indicating that Sars-Cov-2, the virus that causes Covid-19, is likely transmitted by aerosol rather than just by droplets or from surfaces. The precautionary approach would assume that this was the case, and have made masks mandatory1,2. However, the authorities did not do so because masks were apparently ‘in short supply’.
