The following statements are lifted from the Abstract and Conclusions of that report:
"There are no experimental data to support the hypothesis that increases in human hydrocarbon use or in atmospheric carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases are causing or can be expected to cause unfavorable changes in global temperatures, weather, or landscape.”
"The Earth has been much warmer during the past 3,000 years without catastrophic effects."
". . . . carbon dioxide . . . . increases during 20th and early 21st centuries have produced no deleterious effects upon Earth's weather and climate."
"We are living in an increasingly lush environment of plants and animals as a result of this CO2 increase. Our children will therefore enjoy an Earth with far more plant and animal life than that with which we now are blessed."
"Increased carbon dioxide has . . . . markedly increased plant growth. "Human use of coal, oil, and natural gas has not harmfully warmed the Earth, and the extrapolation of current trends shows that it will not do so in the foreseeable future."
"The United States and other countries need to produce more energy, not less. The most practical, economical, and environmentally sound methods available are hydrocarbon and nuclear technologies."
