    This is a damaging piece of propaganda created by climate change deniers. By using a professional at a college, they laid a claim that everything he is saying is an absolute fact. Notice how he only talks about the way CO2 is beneficial for plant life. He doesn't mention once how the increase in CO2 in our atmosphere has contributed to extreme weather and melting polar caps. This ultimately allows people to not care about our environment because this man makes climate denial sound reasonable and scientific, but he also feeds into the beliefs of people who don't believe our Earth is dying.
