OUR CO2  IN EDEN EXPERIMENT REPORT: We have been running experiments on increasing the CO2 percentage in the atmosphere of a set of terrariums as part of our Jurassic Ark Project Our aim is to investigate the effect of increased CO2 on the growth rate of plants. The experiment has only been running for the past three weeks and the results are intriguing.

Summary Technique:
1. We have set up multiple terrariums.
2. Our standard terrarium has atmospheric or normal level of CO2 and is open to the atmosphere.
3. Terrarium number 2 has twice as much CO2 at the start and is cut off from the atmosphere.
4. All remaining contents in terrariums are identical including gravel, water, soil and plant types.
This preliminary experiment is designed to establish problems in measuring growth rates as well asconstruct plans for computer sensing equipment needs.
The most noticeable difference in results to date shows in different growth rates in the normal CO2 terrarium compared with the one in which we have doubled the initial amount of CO2. No further CO2 has been added to the terrarium during the trial. The greatest benefit shows to date in the initial growth rate of the seedlings when the CO2 is at its peak. Future experiments will maintain CO2 at a fixed quantity during the duration of the trial. Data is shown below.

This First EDEN Experiment has now been discontinued so tanks can be set up for next trials to further tweak set up so results can be computer monitored and analysed continuously. Thus far the limited results are not consistent with the climate change concept that CO2 is a villain. As you can see this has tremendous potential application for agriculture, as well as politics and we encourage you to generously support these experiments. See more details below re costs:

EDEN EXPERIMENT NEEDS as we seek to duplicate carbon dioxide (CO2) levels in God’s created good world. All our fossil collecting of giant versions of today’s plants, combined with decades of garden experience tells us that plants respond much better to higher quantities of CO2 as well as an absence of extremes of winter and summer. So we have contracted an Electronics Engineer to design the new Eden climate controlled computer monitored greenhouse experiments as part of our Jurassic Ark project at Gympie Australia. These experimental plots are being grown with double and triple the amount of atmospheric CO2, as well as other control features to show what plant growth was like in the ‘good’ created world before Noah’s Flood destroyed both the planet and the original atmosphere. Results are expected to be both interesting to the average creationist, as well as have long term impact on farming techniques plus be a whammy to the folly we’re seeing in the green politics of climate change. Your financial and prayerful support for this experiment is needed.

OUR EDEN EXPERIMENT continues to test the effects of increased carbon dioxide and plant growth. The experiments involve four separate terrariums, one of which is our standard open terrarium, which simply records plant growth under normal atmospheric conditions at the time, and the other three had controlled amounts of CO2 and were totally enclosed and isolated from the current environment. ( DATA RELEASED Evidence News 0911 - 4th May 2011)

To the end of February 2011, our results tell us:
1) You can double and triple the amount of CO2 and the plants thrive.
2) Plants love water vapour in the air, and do much better with just water vapour rather than rain.
3) In our now famous 2010-11 Aussie flooded summer (Dec – Feb), once the external humidity increased to over 90% and the external temperature rose above 30 degrees, the terrariums simply became heat boxes and killed everything.

Our March 2011 experiment (results below) was designed to separate CO2 influence from temp and humidity so the temp was maintained at 20 degrees (5 degrees below normal room temperature) and the humidity at 80%.

2011 results
Plant type: Pumpkins.
13 Mar 2011 seeds planted
Terrarium 1. Open Normal CO2.
Terrarium 2. Double CO2.
Terrarium 3. Triple CO2.
Terrarium 4. Quadruple Co2.

23 Mar 2011. Plant height measured
Terrarium 1. 14 cm
Terrarium 2. 14 cm
Terrarium 3. 15.5 cm
Terrarium 4. 17 cm

29 Mar 2011 Experiment Discontinued
Terrarium 1. 28cm
Terrarium 2. 27cm
Terrarium 3. 30cm
Terrarium 4. 32cm

What surprised us most from these results was the very obvious benefit of triple and quadruple amounts of CO2 when the temperature was lower than 25 degrees, whereas the double CO2 terrarium didn't do as well as it did when the temperature was higher (25 degrees). This experiment is being redone to confirm this trend, but the Global Warming lobby aka Climate Change promoters can take no joy in any actual results on the effects of CO2 thus far.

A major problem to date has been preventing mist forming on the glass walls, so our photographic records have been rather poor because we originally constructed the terrariums with all thermometers and humidity measuring equipment built into the inside of sealable containers which remained sealed for the duration of each experiment.

The purpose of these first set of experiments has been to establish conditions and variables in order to help us set up more sophisticated long term experiments using computer monitored and climate controlled terrariums, which will automatically record every variable we have discovered, plus monitor increases in plant volume and area which at present we can't really measure.
