The author examines the notion that the increasing amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere will have disastrous effects on human beings and the planet Earth. He notes that the so-called climate crusade is based on contested science and dubious claims. He questions efforts to regulate and consider carbon dioxide (CO2) as a pollutant. He looks at the contribution of carbon dioxide to climate change by referencing some studies on the correlation between (CO2) levels and temperature.
