Fox News thinks pollution is good for the planet

Not that it’s a HUGE surprise that Fox News has beliefs about the environment that are the opposite of true, but just FYI, they are now apparently telling viewers that pollution is good for forests . That means the REAL pollution is CLEAN AIR! It’s like you environmentalists don’t even WANT trees to grow. It’s true that excess nitrogen, for instance, can help plants up to a point. But it’s still bad for forests, which is why it’s called pollution . Saying that “pollution helped grow forests” without adding “… until it killed them” is like saying “oh, you need water to live? Well, then you’ll love drowning.” Thanks to Todd Gregory for the screenshot.
