Greenpeace co-founder: Rising emissions saving planet, not destroying it

Greenpeace co-founder Patrick Moore took a jab at the climate change movement Monday with a study arguing that far from endangering life on Earth, increased greenhouse gas emissions may be saving it.
Mr. Moore, a Greenpeace turncoat who now challenges the catastrophic climate change narrative, said in a treatise that carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere dipped so low about 18,000 years ago that plant life was threatened.

“All life is carbon-based and the primary source of this carbon is the CO2 in the global atmosphere,” Mr. Moore said in his executive summary. “As recently as 18,000 years ago, at the height of the most recent major glaciation, CO2 dipped to its lowest level in recorded history at 180 ppm, low enough to stunt plant growth.”
At about 150 ppm, plant life dies due to carbon dioxide starvation, he said in his paper, “The Positive Impact of Human CO2 Emissions on the Survival of Life on Earth,” released Monday by the Canada-based Frontier Centre for Public Policy.

“It is calculated that if the decline in CO2 levels were to continue at the same rate as it has over the past 140 million years, life on Earth would begin to die as soon as two million years from now and would slowly perish almost entirely as carbon continued to be lost to the deep ocean sediments,” according to the summary.

Reality is always more complex than activists can (or want to) conceive.

I was hoping the co-founder named in the article would have been Paul of Sea Shepard fame(or infamy).
There were only two options for gender. At last count there are at least 12, according to libs. By that standard, I'm a male lesbian.
