Carbon dioxide is harmless, ergo, global warming isn’t a threat!

Michele Bachmann, scientist: “There isn’t even ONE study that can be produced that shows that carbon dioxide is a harmful gas!”

It’s tempting to point out, as Olbermann does here, that many things that occur in nature are not good for you. But the real point is that she is misrepresenting the issue. Inhaling small amounts of carbon dioxide won’t kill you, but global warming is about carbon dioxide in the atmosphere causing higher temperatures. The question: Does Bachmann truly not know that, or does she think her constituents are so stupid that they won’t notice?
