Greening Of The Planet


By Paul Homewood


It’s probably been all round the block, but it is worth putting this one up again, for the next time anybody wants to demonise CO2.

This was from a paper from CSIRO last year, Impact of CO2 fertilization on maximum foliage cover across the globe’s warm, arid environments, which shows just how much foliage cover has increased across most parts of the world since 1982.

Science Daily report:

Increased levels of carbon dioxide (CO2) have helped boost green foliage across the world’s arid regions over the past 30 years through a process called CO2 fertilisation, according to CSIRO research.

In findings based on satellite observations, CSIRO, in collaboration with the Australian National University (ANU), found that this CO2 fertilisation correlated with an 11 per cent increase in foliage cover from 1982-2010 across parts of the arid areas studied in Australia, North…
