Yes, plants like CO2 and the Earth has greened:Now for the good news about our environment:
-- Over 5,000 real experiments, worldwide, prove the astonishing increase in plant, food crop, and forest growth as CO2 levels rise.
-- A NASA satellite, orbiting since 1979, collected data that shows that Earth has "greened" for three successive decades as CO2 levels have increased. This, despite our having paved everything in sight with concrete and asphalt and even clear-cut many rainforests. As we learned in the third grade, CO2 is what plants eat.
-- Additional CO2 should cause more robust habitats and ecosystems, food production per acre will increase, and less remaining pristine habitats will have to yield to the plow as populations increase.
Hang on! Didn't you deniers say human activity couldn't influence Mother Nature?
The problem is that the science says that as more and more CO2 is added to the atmosphere, the greening won't go on forever.
What the science really says will happen:
"...it would be nice if the next decade were as favorable for plants as the past two seem to have been.“Unfortunately, we have no way of knowing yet whether climate changes will continue to have a positive effect on vegetation productivity...”
