Dellers writes for Breitbart:
Alarmist scientists are trying to cover up the good news that rising CO2 levels are making the planet turn greener. And that even includes one of the scientists who made the discovery in the first place.

THE AGW 1837 MOTHER OF ALL HURRICANES
from A Chronological Listing of Early Weather Events (7th edition) by James A. Marusek in www.breadandbutterscience.com
On October 9,1837, the “Racer’s Storm” leaves 2000-mile path of destruction. Racer’s Storm, named for a British sloop of war which encountered the storm in the northwest Caribbean, was one of the most destructive storms of the 19th century. It formed near Jamaica, crossed the Yucatan, struck the Gulf coast of Texas, and moved over Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina before arriving off the North Carolina coast on October 9. It was the tenth known storm of that destructive season. The hurricane was observed from September 27 to October 10. [NHC rank 137/259 with 105 dead]
U.S.A and Global Events for September 28th: (NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE)
1837: The first recorded storm to rake the entire Texas coast was Racer’s Storm, named for a British sloop of war which encountered the system in the extreme northwestern Caribbean on September 28th. It is remembered as one of the most destructive storms of the nineteenth century due to its extreme duration and 2000 mile path of destruction.
EEMIAN: GREENLAND GLACIERS AND LONDON HIPPOPOTAMUS
The EEMIAN was the last Interglacial period (if the Young Dryas event is not considered) that began 130,000 years ago and ended 115,000 YBP. During most of those 15,000 years temperatures were well above the current, as is well stated by different geological, paleontological, and several other proxies.
A strange period by any standards that has been accurately identified in most of the Greenland and Antarctic ice cores. The surprising thing is that, while snow was accumulating year after year in Greenland, hippopotamus and other tropical animal species were grazing in the Thames river and Rhine river valleys and trees were growing in Baffin and Labrador in America and up to the Arctic Polar Circle in Sweden and Finland.
Trafalgar Square a meeting point for roaming rhinoceros, elephants, lions, panthers and hyenas.
A slight inconvenient fact: atmospheric CO2 in those days only averaged 270ppm
Another inconvinient fact: Trafalgar Square is today 8 meters above sea level. During the Eemian sea level rised about 9 meters. Marine lions and marine hyenas anyone?
Hippopotamus methane farting to blame?
Fouling or bio-fouling is a multimillion dollar problem that grows year after year and affects all sort of vessels, harbours’ infrastructures, desalination facilities, water pipes, cooling pipes for nuclear reactors in power plants and similar. Most of biofouling is the result of several types of marine organisms that stick to metallic surfaces (typical on ships’ hulls) and build-up massive colonies.
But one of the most prolific biofouling builders is a small worm that accumulates calcareous tubes with an incredible speed. We are talking of Hydroides elegans a worm able to built a mass of hard and strong calcareous matt in a few weeks.
H. elegans was found capable of building a solid 4 centimeters (1.6 inches) thick limestone matt in just one month on several hulls at Pearl Harbour.
Hydroides is becoming a serious problem in many coastal areas of the world, not only in its original tropical to sub-tropical waters but also invading more temperate water such as the Mediterranean.
How can this happen in our acidic oceans?
SOME MORE ACIDIFICATION, PLEASE

Late Victorian Holocausts: El Niño Famines and the Making of the Third World is a book by Mike Davis about the connection between political economy and global climate patterns, particularly El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO). By comparing ENSO episodes in different time periods and across countries, Davis explores the impact of colonialism and the introduction of capitalism, and the relation with famine in particular. Davis argues that “Millions died, not outside the ‘modern world system’, but in the very process of being forcibly incorporated into its economic and political structures. They died in the golden age of Liberal Capitalism; indeed, many were murdered … by the theological application of the sacred principles of Smith, Bentham and Mill.”
