Carbon dioxide isn't a pollutant: It's making the whole world GREENER...

•, by: Ethan Huff

Though he passed away in 2020, British-born American theoretical physicist and mathematician Freeman Dyson (1923-2020) taught the world some very important lessons about climate change that persist through time, including the fact that the ever-dreaded-among-climate-lunatics element known as carbon dioxide (CO2) is good for the planet rather than bad.

Back in 2015, Dyson participated in an interview with Conversations that Matter in which he explained that the many climate models used by global warming fanatics to predict the environmental future are only suitable for understanding what the climate is doing now, or what it did in the past.

"As measured from space, the whole earth is growing greener as a result of carbon dioxide, so it's increasing agricultural yields, it's increasing the forests, and it's increasing growth in the biological world – and that's more important and more certain than the effects on climate," Dyson explained.

Dyson, in case you are unfamiliar with him, was a renowned expert in climate matters. He is among the most celebrated figures in 20th century physics, having pioneered extensive work in quantum field theory, astrophysics, random matrices, mathematical formulation of quantum mechanics, condensed matter physics, nuclear physics and engineering.

Don't worry: The climate won't hurt you

Back in 2006, Dyson published a work called "The Scientist as Rebel" in which he openly questioned – gasp! – the role of human activity in global warming and climate change. Two years later, he participated in an interview with Physics World in which he basically debunked the climate industry as a money grifting operation.
