Study maps vast areas of new plant growth as global warming reshapes the Arctic

There are 10 comments on the Summit County Voice story from Mar 11, 2013, titled Study maps vast areas of new plant growth as global warming reshapes the Arctic. In it, Summit County Voice reports that:

Global warming is reshaping the Arctic on vast scale by reducing the temperature differences between seasons and spurring vast areas of new plant growth on more than a third of the northern landscape.

The changes
“may lead”
to a decoupling of growing season warmth and vegetation productivity in some parts of the North, said Hans Tømmervik, a senior researcher with the Norwegian Institute for Nature Research in Tromsø.
Other consequences from the amplified Arctic greenhouse effect
“could include”
ermafrost thawing, frequent forest fires, outbreak of pest infestations, and summertime droughts, Tømmervik said.

Any significant alterations to temperature and vegetation seasonality are likely to impact life not only in the north but elsewhere
“in ways that we do not yet know.”

There you have it folks they said may, could and we do not know. This supports their scientific science fiction scare tactics. They really don't know.

Greetings, litesong. You write about the situation in our north polar region. You reminds us "5.5 months of no sun" nowadays.

People don't seem to figure out that any new plant growth there under AGW is not going to be food source for us. Plants need sunlight to do photosynthesis.

Well, 5.5 & 6 months of no sun, applies to the North Pole. The most northern Arctic lands will have months more of sun than the North Pole. & the lands further south(but still far to the north) will be challenging to see develop as farmlands, as the thawing permafrost makes for tough road & new farm conditions. Most certainly, technology can be brought to bear, to prepare past permafrost lands to develop for crops.

Several mentioned areas in the article above, are reported in my daily Arctic weather conditions, including temperatures. Some mighty chilly areas, with common lowest temperatures of the year, below -40degC. & some temperatures, even much lower.

Thanks for the reference.

Within hours of my post a new thread published the following:

Also, warmer temperatures alone in the boreal zone do not guarantee more plant growth, which also depends on the availability of water and sunlight.

Also, your article concludes:

But though the N.W.T. will likely never become a completely self-sustaining food producer or be known for their commercial agriculture industry, that doesn’t mean there might not be a place for northern farming in Canada in the future.

Just scratching the surface...

There you have it again folks the "pinheadlitesout" and the spaceoutblues with another case of diarrhea and its never ending diaper rash.
Could be that terrible car crash it got into and now suffers from another brain disorder. HA HA the "pinheadlitesout" and the spacedoutblues are empty between the ears so that couldn't happen.
