Net Benefit: Rising CO2 Improves Essential Crop Yields 3% Per Year - Critical to Feeding The World

Net Benefit: Rising CO2 Improves Essential Crop Yields 3% Per Year – Critical to Feeding The World

Share this…FacebookTwitterThe elevated CO2 fertilization effect is driving global greening trends, pushing back deserts, enhancing photosynthesis by 30 to 50%, improving water use efficiency, and boosting crop yields by about 3% every year since 1961.  Recently atmospheric CO2 has been rising at a rate of about 3 ppm per year. While activists claim this is […]

More New Studies Affirm Rising CO2 Leads To Land Surface Cooling By Driving Earth's Greening Trends

More New Studies Affirm Rising CO2 Leads To Land Surface Cooling By Driving Earth’s Greening Trends

Share this…FacebookTwitterCO2-induced greening may reduce land surface temperatures by -0.7°C over the next 80 years. Earlier this year we highlighted a new study indicating the rising greening trends in the last four decades can be attributed to the change in precipitation patterns and “the physiological impact of rising CO2.” Greening-induced increases in evapotranspiration lead, in turn, […]

AR6 Model Failure Affirmed: 'No Model Group Succeeds Reproducing Observed Surface Warming Patterns'

AR6 Model Failure Affirmed: ‘No Model Group Succeeds Reproducing Observed Surface Warming Patterns’

Share this…FacebookTwitterA new study published in Geophysical Research Letters highlights the abysmal model performance manifested in the latest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report (AR6). The 38 CMIP6 general circulation models (GCMs) fail to adequately simulate even the most recent (1980-2021) warming patterns over 60 to 81% of the Earth’s surface. Dr. Scafetta places particular […]

CO2 A Blessing: Just 1 PPM Increase Means Up To 0.8% Greater Crop Yields, New Study Shows

CO2 A Blessing: Just 1 PPM Increase Means Up To 0.8% Greater Crop Yields, New Study Shows

Share this…FacebookTwitterHigher CO2 means more food, new study confirms As much as the global warming alarmists like to claim that warmer mean global temperatures are nothing but catastrophic, we know that warmer temperatures indeed offer a number of advantages. Source: Food and Agriculture Organization Among them is agricultural output and global greening. Warmer temperatures not […]

2 More New Studies Affirm CO2 Will Continue Greening (And Thus Cooling) The Planet Through 2100

2 More New Studies Affirm CO2 Will Continue Greening (And Thus Cooling) The Planet Through 2100

Share this…FacebookTwitterScientists continue to assert CO2-induced global greening will continue unabated in the 21st century…just as it has since the 1980s. As Earth’s surface becomes greener, it becomes cooler, offsetting much of the projected warming. Satellite observations affirm the planet has become much greener over the last 4 decades, and this greening trend is largely […]

Bad News For Climate Alarmism: Global Warming Of 4.9°C Will Make The Earth Greener, Not Browner

Bad News For Climate Alarmism: Global Warming Of 4.9°C Will Make The Earth Greener, Not Browner

Share this…FacebookTwitterA simulated global warming of nearly 5°C will actually lead to more greening, more vegetation, more gross primary productivity…even if CO2 fertilization is held constant at present levels. A 2021 observational analysis (Cortes et al.) published in Geophysical Research Letters indicated that since 1981 15.8 million km² of the Earth’s land surface has greened […]

New Study: There Is No Extreme Precipitation, Drought, Flood, Hurricane, Tornado….Climate Crisis

Share this…FacebookTwitterAfter a thorough examination of extreme weather indices across the globe, scientists (Alimonti et al., 2022) have concluded “none of these response indicators show a clear positive trend of extreme events.” Therefore. “the climate crisis that, according to many sources, we are experiencing today, is not evident yet.” There is an “absence of generalized […]

Scientists Eliminate False Positives In Trend Analysis To Assert NO BROWNING - Only Greening - Since 1981

Scientists Eliminate False Positives In Trend Analysis To Assert NO BROWNING – Only Greening – Since 1981

Share this…FacebookTwitterA new study robustly affirms Earth’s recent vegetation greening trend by eliminating overestimations (false positives). Although this more restrictive analytical approach reduces the observed percentage of the Earth’s land greening from 36% to 15%, it also means that, when using the mean analysis, no browning trend can be detected in the last 40 years.

Over 400 Scientific Papers Published In 2020 Support A Skeptical Position On Climate Alarm

Share this…FacebookTwitter In 2020, more than 400 scientific papers were published that cast doubt on the position that anthropogenic CO2 emissions function as the climate’s fundamental control knob…or that otherwise serve to question the efficacy of climate models or the related “consensus” positions commonly endorsed by policymakers and mainstream media sources. Over 400 scientific papers […]

Another New Study Says Warming And CO2-Induced Greening Leads To COOLING Of Land Surface Temperatures

Another New Study Says Warming And CO2-Induced Greening Leads To COOLING Of Land Surface Temperatures

Share this…FacebookTwitterSince the 1980s, warming and rising CO2 fertilization have spawned a global-scale greening trend. This leads to an “Earth greening-induced cooling effect” of land surface temperatures. In the last 9 months we have highlighted a study (Haverd et al., 2020) asserting rising CO2 and warming are the dominant drivers of Earth’s strong post-1980s greening […]
