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

A 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. It’s […]

Scientists Have Determined A 5°C Warmer Earth 'Would Provide More Habitable Conditions'

Scientists Have Determined A 5°C Warmer Earth ‘Would Provide More Habitable Conditions’

In a new study, scientists insist that since the Earth’s highest biomass and biodiversity exist in the warmest regions, “higher temperatures than currently existing on Earth” and a “higher water content (absolute humidity) in the atmosphere” seem to be “more favorable” to the planet’s inhabitants. Until a few thousand years ago, when mammoths and wild […]

New Study: Rising CO2 Drives Post-1980s Greening...Which Cools The Earth And Offsets 29% Of Human Emissions

New Study: Rising CO2 Drives Post-1980s Greening…Which Cools The Earth And Offsets 29% Of Human Emissions

About 70% of the Earth’s post-1980s vegetative greening trend has been driven by CO2 fertilization. More greening has offset or reversed 29% of recent anthropogenic CO2 emissions. Greening also has a net cooling effect on surface temperatures. Earlier this year we highlighted a study (Haverd et al., 2020) asserting rising CO2 and warming are the […]

Earth Is Greening Due To Rising CO2...A Growing Greening Sink Offsets 17 Years Of Equivalent CO2 Emissions By 2100

Earth Is Greening Due To Rising CO2…A Growing Greening Sink Offsets 17 Years Of Equivalent CO2 Emissions By 2100

A new study finds rising CO2 concentrations (and warming) have driven the rapid increase in Earth’s photosynthesis processes, or greening. CO2-induced planetary greening leads to an enormous expansion of Earth’s carbon sink. By 2100 this greening-sink effect will offset 17 years of equivalent human CO2 emissions. This easily supersedes the effect of Paris Agreement CO2 […]

Over 440 Scientific Papers Published In 2019 Support A Skeptical Position On Climate Alarm

In 2019,  more than 440 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. Image Source: Collins et al., 2019 […]

Since 1981 74% Of The Globe Greened And Crop Production Swelled By 95% Due To Rising CO2, Warming

Since 1981 74% Of The Globe Greened And Crop Production Swelled By 95% Due To Rising CO2, Warming

In two new papers (Chen et al., 2019, Gao et al., 2019), scientists identify an expansive greening trend for nearly 3/4ths of the globe’s land area as well as a 12.4% carbon sink increase, a 39% crop yield increase, and a 95% crop production increase since the early 1980s. The scientists attribute these trends to climate […]

Let's Welcome Warming! 2 New Studies Show Species, Biodiversity Harmed More By Cooling Than Warming

Let’s Welcome Warming! 2 New Studies Show Species, Biodiversity Harmed More By Cooling Than Warming

Two recent scientific publications underscore how mass extinction events are associated with global cool-offs, glaciation and sea level fall, and NOT warmer climates. Life thrives when the globe gets tropically warm. Photo credit: NASA, public domain There’s been a lot of hype and hysteria surrounding the claims that the recent, modest global warming supposedly will […]

New Paper: CO2 Rise + Warming Are 91% Responsible For The Earth's Accelerated Greening Trend Since 1990

New Paper: CO2 Rise + Warming Are 91% Responsible For The Earth’s Accelerated Greening Trend Since 1990

Satellite observations indicate the Earth has become much greener in recent decades. According to scientists, the overwhelming majority of the “significant increases in tropical forests and the forests of North America, Eurasia, and China” since the early 1990s can be attributed to the combination of CO2 fertilization (56%) and climate change (35%). Image Source: O’Sullivan […]

Consensus? 200+ New 2019 Papers Support A Skeptical Position On Climate Alarmism

Consensus? 200+ New 2019 Papers Support A Skeptical Position On Climate Alarmism

In the first 5½ months of 2019, over 200 scientific papers have been 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 ²²²²mainstream media sources. These […]

New Study: The Recent CO2 Increase Has Had An Even Greater Earth-Greening Impact Than Previously Thought

New Study: The Recent CO2 Increase Has Had An Even Greater Earth-Greening Impact Than Previously Thought

The Earth has been rapidly greening in recent decades, and CO2 fertilization may explain 70% of the trend (Zhu et al., 2016). A new study finds models have significantly underestimated the greening effect of rising CO2. Image Source: Winkler et al., 2019 CO2 is a pollutant? In recent years, carbon dioxide (CO2), an essential ingredient […]

2 New Papers: World's Heat-Related Deaths Are Declining...Cold Weather Is 20-42 Times More Deadly

2 New Papers: World’s Heat-Related Deaths Are Declining…Cold Weather Is 20-42 Times More Deadly

Observations from two new papers undermine the narrative that says recent and future warming may be dangerous and undesirable. Scientists have determined that (1) people are far more likely to die from exposure to cold temperatures than hot temperatures, and (2) deaths attributed to excessive heat have been on the decline for  decades in nearly all countries […]
