More CO2 required…benefits are enormous, and the science is peer reviewed

NIPCC report: Rising CO2 is beneficial

For those who want science and not politics, the enormous scientific compendium known as the NIPCC reports has been updated to incorporate new results. There are hundreds of references to peer reviewed research. It is as always, thorough, professional and comprehensive.

The authors of the new NIPCC report conclude that “the net effect of continued warming and rising carbon dioxide concentrations in the atmosphere is most likely to be beneficial to humans, plants, and wildlife.”

To summarize the executive summary:

  • The models overestimate the warming, don’t include chemical and biological process that may be as important as the physical ones.
  • Plants like CO2, grow faster and the green biomass of the Earth tends to counteract the warming effects of CO2.
  • New evidence shows the Medieval Warm Period was real, global and warmer than the present, while CO2 was 28% lower.
  • The ice is not melting as much as people expected; the seas are not accelerating; there’s no change in rain or river flows that you can blame CO2 on.
  • Life on Earth likes warmth. Amphibians, birds, butterflies, other insects, lizards, mammals, and even worms do better with a bit of global warming.
  • Warmth and CO2 increases crops and global food. It’s good for hungry people. More »
  • Read it all, I have been saying this for a long time now,  as long as I have had access to the internet. Even as long as I have studied horticulture.
  •  And as long as I have been a part of the Rural and Fishing Industries.
  • City folk have got a lot of catching up to, along with a number of science graduates from the Climate Change Department. Start here. Then read this. More still.
  •  It even reduces the severity of drought, farmers know this already.

I even tried to tell a journalist, but he wasn’t listening, and did not answer the letter I sent him.
