At Koch’s ALEC Conference: ‘The Many Benefits Of Atmospheric CO2 Enrichment’

The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), the political corruption group funded by Koch Industries and other corporations to influence state-level Republican legislators, is holding its annual meeting in New Orleans, LA, this week. On the agenda this morning was the “Benefit Analysis of CO2,” also known as “Warming Up To Climate Change.” The Center for Media and Democracy’s Eric Carlson attended and picked up their literature, a tract from the fossil-funded denier group Science and Public Policy Institute, which points out that if you ignore global warming, carbon dioxide is good for plants.
