Me: Longer growing seasons and less fuel to heat homes.
Post #47

Me:In fact, trees, something environmentalist love to see grow more. I don't recall reading about many trees when glaciers covered us.

You: After that we can look at the fact grain crops don't produce as much grain when they grow fast (lower yield). And weeds and pests thrive under warmer conditions. But let's deal with precipitation first.
Quote:
You mentioned a longer growing season and that it would benefit mankind. That points to food crops.
Here's where you're using a strawman argument (a logical fallacy)—I didn't say crops would "grow fast," but that the "growing season was longer." You added in the word "fast." If the growing season is longer, they'd have more time to grow.

You are essentially using strawman arguments. Ya' know erecting another argument I did not make, in order to refute it because a different argument is easier to refute than the one made. I said trees grow more. I said nothing about fast anywhere. Yet, you're asking me to stay with you? You just want to reframe the argument to claim you countered it.
