They used to say "more resilient" about children. This wasn't true but they just said it just like the same claim for the Amazon.

Warning from the piece: Climate change would be more damaging for the Amazon if greenhouse gases other than CO2, such as ozone or methane which do not have a fertilizing effect, take a bigger role.

Trees must have additional water and nitrogen (fertilizer) if they are going to have a greenhouse effect.

Warming tends to dry out the moisture in the soil. So unless there is enough rain to offset that, there will be no greenhouse effect.

The greenhouse gas effect is still in force. You must have meant fertilizing effect, right?

Also, warmer air holds more water. Just check the humidity charts.

So Commander TROLL continues to answer directly or indirectly you keep the topix forums entertained and free at that.

Yup made a typo earlier.

And its true warmer air holds more water. but the additional clouds have to rain out over an area. Look at the western US last summer during the droughts. Doesn't help it was raining on the coasts.

Yup, just like getting walloped again and again you make several errors not typo's again and again.
