Thanks for the great Earth day reality check!
Death by GREENING!

U.N. Predicts Disaster if Global Warming Not Checked PETER JAMES SPIELMANN June 29, 1989
UNITED NATIONS (AP) _ A senior U.N. environmental official says entire nations could be wiped off the face of the Earth by rising sea levels if the global warming trend is not reversed by the year 2000.
Coastal flooding and crop failures would create an exodus of ″eco- refugees,′ ′ threatening political chaos, said Noel Brown, director of the New York office of the U.N. Environment Program, or UNEP.
He said governments have a 10-year window of opportunity to solve the greenhouse effect before it goes beyond human control.
As the warming melts polar icecaps, ocean levels will rise by up to three feet, enough to cover the Maldives and other flat island nations, Brown told The Associated Press in an interview on Wednesday.
Coastal regions will be inundated; one-sixth of Bangladesh could be flooded, displacing a fourth of its 90 million people. A fifth of Egypt’s arable land in the Nile Delta would be flooded, cutting off its food supply, according to a joint UNEP and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency study.
″Ecological refugees will become a major concern, and what’s worse is you may find that people can move to drier ground, but the soils and the natural resources may not support life. Africa doesn’t have to worry about land, but would you want to live in the Sahara?″ he said.”
We're not having a climate CRISIS we're having a climate OPTIMUM!
It was this warm or warmer during the Medieval climate Optimum/Warm Period, Roman climate OPTIMUM, Minoan climate OPTIMUM and Holocene climate OPTIMUM that all lasted for centuries in the last 9,000 years and got the name(s) OPTIMUM before climate science was hijacked and even rewritten (hockey stick) so that the exact same weather/ climate conditions today can be called a CRISIS.
We are not have a climate crisis, we are having a major environmental crisis:

By Anthony Watts: My new book: Climate at a Glance for Teachers and Students: Facts on 30 Prominent Climate Topics – is available on Amazon.com for the first time and debuted on Earth Day
Although I’m the primary author, the book is published by The Heartland Institute, the 2022 edition of the book breaks down 30 of the most frequently argued climate issues into short, “at-a-glance” summaries that provide, accurate, critical information concerning climate change. Topics include the latest data and analysis of the climate’s effect on crop production, drought, floods, coral reefs, sea-level rise, ice melt, extreme weather, the urban heat-island effect, wildfires, polar bears, the effect of COVID-19 on carbon dioxide levels, and more.
“Each topic has key takeaways, and is cited and referenced, often using U.S. government data from NOAA, NASA, EPA and other agencies to cut through the clutter and show the reality of each climate topic,” said Heartland Institute Senior fellow Anthony Watts,
“After spending decades on-camera during the evening TV news presenting meteorological events and trying to explain them in a way that a layperson can understand, I applied that experience to the production of this book.
“Simple, easy-to-digest explanations, factual references, and compelling graphics allow for easy reading of what are often complex climate topics,” Watts said.
BONUS: The paperback of the book contains links and a scannable QR-code to freely downloadable and distributable digital PDF copies of the book, as well as a PowerPoint slide deck for all the topics.

5 years ago, I was speaking to a group of 2 classes worth of 5th graders, who had been studying weather in their science class at school(as a meteorologist). When I mentioned that carbon dioxide was a beneficial gas that’s greening up the planet, their teacher, said out loud “Wow, I never thought of that!”
Multiply that ignorance by tens of thousands of classrooms around the country and we have the recipe for a generation raised to believe that CO2 is pollution destroying the planet based on junk science.
I haven’t read the book yet but feel confident, knowing Anthony’s understanding of authentic meteorology and climate that ALL science teachers and their students would expand their understanding of those subjects by reading/using it.
The review by the book hater tells us about their tunnel vision, debate is over, anti science(science is settled mentality). At the very least, they should have recognized that the book makes some good scientific points which aren’t being considered……and that’s what science is all about.
Instead, ironically, he accuses the book of trying to do exactly what he is doing.
His accusation that the authors are intentionally lying for political purposes (to sabotage his altruistic, save the planet agenda, we assume) is offensive anti science, DISinformation slander.

Belated 150th Happy Arbor Day!
The origins of Arbor Day date back to the early 1870s in Nebraska City, . A journalist by the name of Julius Sterling Morton moved to the state with his wife, Caroline, in 1854, a little more than 10 years before Nebraska gained its statehood in 1867. The couple purchased 160 acres in Nebraska City and planted a wide variety of trees and shrubs in what was a primarily a flat stretch of desolate plain.
Morton also became the editor of the state’s first newspaper, Nebraska City News, which was a perfect platform for Morton to spread his knowledge of trees… and to stress their ecological importance to Nebraska. His message of tree life resonated with his readers, many of whom recognized the lack of forestation in their community. Morton also became involved with the Nebraska Board of Agriculture.
On January 7, 1872, Morton proposed a day that would encourage all Nebraskans to plant trees in their community. The agriculture board agreed, and after some back-and-forth about the title—the event was originally going to be called “Sylvan Day” in reference to forest trees—Morton convinced everyone that the day should reflect the appreciation of all trees, and “Arbor Day” was born.
The Sylva Foundation is an environmental organisation focusing on trees and forestry established in 2006, and registered as a charity in England and Wales in 2009  and with the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator in 2010. The organisation was co-founded by Sir Martin Wood and Dr Gabriel Hemery. Its office is at the Sylva Wood Centre in Long Wittenham in Oxfordshire, England.
Sylva, or A Discourse of Forest-Trees and the Propagation of Timber in His Majesty's Dominions by the English writer John Evelyn was first presented in 1662 as a paper to the Royal Society. It was published as a book two years later in 1664, and is recognised as one of the most influential texts on forestry ever published.
