Free Fertilization from Power Stations?

There seems to be a lot of wastage going on in this world.

We have umpteen billions of dollars being spent on useless or unproductive 'climate change" research in order to keep the global warming hysteria bandwagon going, which pleases our Great Green Profit, Al Gore and the mad political leaders of the Western World.

Millions of dollars are misdirected on funding "clean energy" and "clean coal technology" which is the bizarre idea of trying to bury underground the CO2 emissions coming from a coal-fired power station. To do this it is estimated to consume some 80% more of the coal resource in energy required. What a great saving! For the Greens and global warmers, black is white, red is green, up is down, and vice versa, if need be, if it will help to support their eco-religious belief system!

It is a pity that some of these research funds could not be directed towards some of the positive, or beneficial aspects of CO2 emissions!

We seem to rely solely on the gas monitoring station on top of Mauna Loa volcano in Hawaii for CO2 content of the atmosphere, which produces a continuously increasing level of CO2, now ca 385 ppm, as time goes by. It is their graph that causes the concern of the global warmers. This increase of CO2 must be stopped hence we need the drastic restrictions on emissions proposed by Kyoto.

It makes me suspicious when only one source of scientific data is used to support a theory. Look at the IPCC thinking they have a monopoly of wisdom to advise Governments on climate and energy policies!

The global warmers keep very quiet about variability of atmospheric CO2. In all their offices it is sure to be up around 1000 ppm without harmful effects.

Is there any research done on the variablity of atmospheric CO2 in the region around a coal-fired power station? Is it possible to make use of the CO2 emissions from such a power station (or like industrial activity) to fertilize adjacent agricultural activity? If there were appreciable areas where CO2 content was say 500 - 600 ppm then this would benefit the growing of crops or forests. Instead of burying CO2 why not devise the technical means of using and channeling it directly for agriculture use?

Surely this idea is worthy of industry and Government support?
