Wrong, wrong and wrong.

Western U.S. faces drought crisis

Deadly Dozen diseases could stem from Global Warming

I’m too lazy to search for references right now, but more people die world-wide from heat-waves than the cold, especially the young and old.

BUT, CO2 IS PLANT FOOD… how can that be bad for anything?
Ah, the wonders of unintended consequences.

It appears that vines such as poison ivy, oak, sumac, and kudzu are especially good at utilizing the increased atmospheric CO2.  I confirm the below reports with my own experiences this past April clearing a hill side of invasive Tamarisk interwoven with poison oak vines leaving me with the worst (80% coverage) case of poison oak I’ve experienced.  Now that hillside is covered with recovered poison oak consisting of monster leaves the size of fig leaves -
just don’t try to cover up your privates with it grin

Unlikely Fan of Global Warming: Poison Ivy
May 30, 2006
Global warming may spell bad times for polar bears but it seems to be a boon to poison ivy. A six-year experiment to find out how increased levels of carbon dioxide affect forests uncovered a surprising result: In the area used for the experiment, poison ivy grew like crazy. Melissa Block talks with ecologist Jacqueline Mohan is a scientist at the Ecosystems Center in Woods Hole, part of the Harvard Forest in central Massachusetts.

Poison Ivy Growing Faster, More Virulent
July 20, 2010
Lewis Ziska, plant physiologist for the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s agricultural research service, says rising carbon dioxide levels and forest disruption are making poison ivy spread faster, grow larger, show up in new places and become more toxic. He tells host Michele Norris what makes the plant uniquely affected and how to treat skin that’s been exposed.

Dandelions, Poison Ivy Grow With Global Warming
by John Nielsen
July 12, 2007
A pair of new studies shows dandelions and poison ivy are expected to thrive as carbon dioxide, the main gas responsible for climate change, builds up in the atmosphere.

I often wonder why my yard has never had poison oak (in the 15 years I’ve lived here), yet my neighbor across the street is constantly battling it. We get the same wildlife visits. Although, like my sons, I am immune (unlike my neighbors,who get a reminder every year of their sensitivity), I am very familiar with its forms and appearance…. just wondering…

Au contraire, ‘god’ obviously loves my neighbors more, since he sends all of his creations to live there! I’ll bet the raccoon that used to invade their kitchen every night at 2am was Jebus trying to spread the good book. He was sent to heaven by god, the mountain lion in my yard, as a warning to me.

Thought I’d express more kudos for the website in the OP of this thread. Excellent one-stop resource for rebuttals to climate science denial.

Hope you don’t mind me plugging a scary as hell video.
Unfortunately, it’s informed science rather that sci fi.
