Plants Need CO2 To GrowFebruary 19, 2014
A Satellite Proves - Earth is Greening
A NASA scientist recently discovered that a satellite, orbiting since 1979, has a sensor on it that can measure the greenness of the Earth; the density of the forests, the extent and richness of the grasslands, etc. An analysis of the data indicates that the Earth has been getting greener and greener for three successive decades. This is despite our having paved everything in sights, built new buildings everywhere, and have even clear-cut vast swaths of the rainforests.
What caused these 30 years of greening? While some warming can help, Earth has not warmed now for a decade and a half, leaving only the continued rise in atmospheric CO2 as the obvious reason for the greening. But then that is what we should expect because over 5,300 peer reviewed studies have demonstrated the astonishing growth of plants, food crops, and trees as they are fed more of what they "eat"; CO2.
So true environmentalists - WHERE ARE YOU? The best thing we can do to make the habitats and ecosystems more robust is to continue the build-up of atmospheric CO2. We have all been mislead by a media that is only giving us the catastrophic projections from un-validated computer models that show that Earth is very likely to incur continued warming caused by man-made CO2.
