Well, it worked!
Here's more on tree carbon.
“Forests store about 45 percent of the carbon found on land. Widespread tree death can radically transform ecosystems, affecting biodiversity, posing fire risks, and even harming local economies. Rapid shifts in ecosystems, particularly through vegetation die-offs could be among the most striking impacts of increased drought and climate change around the globe.”- See more at: http://carnegiescience.edu/news/tree_dieoff_t...
Yes, it did work.

Definitions are the key in science facts:

Climate variability

Climate variability refers to variations in the mean state and other statistics (such as standard deviations, the occurrence of extremes, etc.) of the climate at all spatial and temporal scales beyond that of individual weather events.

Variability may be due to natural internal processes within the climate system (internal variability), or to variations in natural or anthropogenic external forcing (external variability). See also Climate change.

Climate change

A change in the state of the climate that can be identified (e.g., by using statistical tests) by changes in the mean and/or the variability of its properties and that persists for an extended period, typically decades or longer. Climate change may be due to natural internal processes or external forcings, or to persistent anthropogenic changes in the composition of the atmosphere or in land use.1 See also Climate variability and Detection and attribution.

Detection and attribution

Climate varies continually on all time scales. Detection of climate change is the process of demonstrating that climate has changed in some defined statistical sense, without providing a reason for that change. Attribution of causes of climate change is the process of establishing the most likely causes for the detected change with some defined level of confidence.

Not all people are good people and scientists are people too.
The majority of people who have poorly earned hi skule DEE-plooomaas (or none at all), because they never thought it worth working for top notch schooling, including science & mathematics, are not trying for goodness.

He was talking about science papers, not graphic novels.
Graphic novels? Long comic books?
You are rating him too high. The bindings are better than his usual stapler.
