  1. While I agree that the case for warming affecting coral reefs is sound, provided that IPCC projections really would occur, I find the case for CO2 affecting coral reefs rather speculative. Can you point to any particular research that would support that view?

  2. The references in this report by Craig Idso to “climate alarmists” and “the radical environmentalist movement” do little to enhance the perception of his attempt at scientific objectivity.

    His analysis and conclusions are quite a remarkable contortion of the scientific literature. He ends with “We have got to realize that rising atmospheric CO2 concentrations are not the bane of the biosphere, but a boon to the planet’s many life forms.”

    The analysis is similar to the work of Bjorn Lomborg, in The Skeptical Environmentalist and Cool It, by massaging the evidence to suit a pre-conceived conclusion and political agenda.
