Earth may be the only planet in the universe that has water. At least the he kind of water we have - oceans, rivers, streams, lakes, an atmosphere of water vapor condensing into clouds, and ice covering massive areas of our planet.

Climate change deniers often buttress their basic argument against climate change science by claiming that an increase in atmospheric CO2 will make Earth greener. Their reasoning revolves around the fact that plants "breathe" in CO2 and "breathe" out oxygen. In addition, the deniers theorize that more plants will remove more CO2, and pollution.

In this view, the more greenhouse gases we release into the atmosphere the better. ... MORE ...-->
