Lawmaker Argues for More Carbon Dioxide in Atmosphere

"Arguing that we need more carbon dioxide, not less, in the atmosphere," Utah state Rep. Jerry Anderson (R) "has proposed legislation that would limit the state's ability to regulate emissions of the greenhouse gas," the Salt Lake Tribune reports.

Said Anderson: "We are short of carbon dioxide for the needs of the plants. Concentrations reached 600 parts per million at the time of the dinosaurs and they did quite well. I think we could double the carbon dioxide and not have any adverse effects."
