    Rejoice, the Earth Is Becoming Greener

    Rejoice, the Earth Is Becoming Greener - Foundation for Economic Education

    In 2016, a paper was published by 32 authors from 24 institutions in eight countries that analyzed satellite data and concluded that there had been a roughly 14 percent increase in green vegetation over 30 years. The study attributed 70 percent of this increase to the extra carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. The lead author on the study, Zaichun Zhu of Beijing University, says this is equivalent to adding a new continent of green vegetation twice the size of the mainland United States.


    Global greening has affected all ecosystems—from arctic tundra to coral reefs to plankton to tropical rain forests—but shows up most strongly in arid places like the Sahel region of Africa, where desertification has largely now reversed. This is because plants lose less water in the process of absorbing carbon dioxide if the concentration of carbon dioxide is higher. Ecosystems and farms will be less water-stressed at the end of this century than they are today during periods of low rainfall.
    See, a bit of warming is good for us after all!

    I approve this message.
    The left says the right is full of racists and bigots and have no tolerance. Nobody from the right organizes interference with gay pride parades, or other leftist events. The left however always has a group interfering with events organized by the right. Who are the tolerant ones I ask? Most certainly not the left.

    Too bad food crops respond negatively to the changes in climate, stronger weeds, and more plentiful pest insects.

    But hey, maybe we can just eat grass and trees.

    The OP says the opposite. Crop yields are up.

    Again with the single-variable thinking. Post hoc ergo propter hoc.
