The Sky Is Not Falling As The Left States

His book is called "Factfulness: 10 Reasons Why We Are Wrong About the World and Why Things Are Better Than You Think", an exceptionally good read.

This past summer, while discussing farming with my brother and brother-in-law, I received an education concerning chemicals such as fertilizer usage having dropped dramatically. The use of fertilizer skyrocketed from 1940 to about 1970 and has plateau and is actually beginning to fall. So we are producing far more with less fertilizer.Production of corn and soybeans has dramatically increased 300% since 1975 when Igraduated and left for college while needing less rain water to accomplish such a feat.We now produce 5 times more corn and soybeans than our father produced 70 years ago.

Today we use less electricity because of LED bulb technology lowering costs 75%. Modern buildings generally contain less steel and more of it is recycled. Offices are not yet paperless, but they use much less paper today. Our forests actually have expanded in the past 50 years and continue to grow with the much needed increase of CO2 assisting our grasslands and woodlands. Logging, farming, livestock, and other human activities that had once decimated the forests in the early nineteen hundreds in the North Eastern states of New England and Connecticut are now large and lush green forests because we no longer use wood for fuel, 70% less wood for fuel. Wood used for paper is about the same, but comes from far more efficiently managed forests. Yes, we have fires devastating parts of the world but that is not the full picture the media tells. The ice cap is growing in Antarctica perhaps as the earth increases its tilt and erosion from farming practices that have silted our oceans and are a huge reason our oceans and bays have silted in and displaced the water are improving from farming methods. Removing this silt from our oceans is not currently possible but communities along coasts are starting impressive projects as we recently discovered Corpus Christi, Texas is attempting to dredge their bays channel of silt to increase their shipping routes.

Clearly you are a fan of #Trump. Tell me, are you still supportive even after how poorly he handled the #Covid19 crisis?
