CO2 is Greening the World!

Post by Jim Steele » Mon Feb 20, 2017 2:40 am

While warmunistas gnash there teeth thinking we are all gonna die, scientists find the earth is greening, a tremendous benefit to both man and beast!
We show a persistent and widespread increase of growing season integrated LAI (greening) over 25% to 50% of the global vegetated area, whereas less than 4% of the globe shows decreasing LAI (browning). Factorial simulations with multiple global ecosystem models suggest that CO2 fertilization effects explain 70% of the observed greening trend, followed by nitrogen deposition (9%), climate change (8%) and land cover change (LCC) (4%). CO2 fertilization effects explain most of the greening trends in the tropics, whereas climate change resulted in greening of the high latitudes and the Tibetan Plateau

I read that when it comes to food crops....this greening is detrimental as the plants shift focus to general growth rather than seed production. I don't care enough to link it.

..............but.............. so what? Or does "more green" equal "less white"? And what would THAT mean?

Making the world suitable for green plants, polar bears, or coral..... isn't the issue. Try to focus.

More growth more productivity but Bobbo says "we all gonna die"

JS.... your writing product is very bi-polar. Very technical scientific reviews... and then pure gibberish and missing the point. Being firm on the latter, I'm starting to question the former. Are you as disjointed there and I don't have the expertise on subject to notice it?

Here we have "green" in your mind equally productivity WHEN THE CRITIQUE is that green doesn't matter but rather seed production does. You see.... humans don't eat green...we eat the seeds of the plants (corn, wheat, rice==all seeds). Fruits are just a bonus.

Either you don't understand the basics......or you are a goof. In either case.... not of much value.

ROTFLMAO Without green photosynthesis there are NO seeds or fruits!!!

Do you really have no clue??

Silly. I'll monitor this thread, probably the others too, just for the pictures.

Why grow more food, we already produce more than we can eat. Yes many are starving but that's a problem of distribution, not production.
