Blame It On the Volcanoes

Dingbats like Donald Trump sometimes will accept that climate change is caused by rising CO₂ levels, but claim that human activity has nothing to do with it, as if humans burning fossil fuels in cars, power plants etc. does not produce CO₂ like all other burning does.

They are trying to deny the laws of chemistry. Sometimes they try to blame volcanoes.

2 C₈H₁₈ + 25 O₂ ⇒ 16 CO₂ + 18 H₂O

You would need a volcano the size of Mount Saint Helens, erupting every day of the year to come close to the amount of CO₂ we humans generate. So obviously it is not volcanoes.

Why would these bastards lie that science said it was? Because Exxon-Mobil wants to wring the last pennies of profit from their dying sunset industry, even if it destroys the planet for their grand-kids. The money competition game means more to them than their grand-kids. Sick.
