Tell That to the Plants!

1049 20120228 C02

Hey everyone! It’s Rick Santorum time again! Over the weekend, Ricky said, “CO2 is a pollutant? Tell that to the plants.” I can’t even make this stuff up. Yes, plants use a small amount of carbon—not the 90 million tons of carbon emissions we’re putting into the air daily that is directly causing global warming. Plants release water from small pores in their leaves allowing them to cool their surroundings. If there is too much carbon dioxide the pores constrict and as a result less water can be released causing the plant to lose it’s cooling power. But, that’s science and Santorum doesn’t believe in that.
