“Trees are getting bigger because of carbon dioxide in the air, which will also help reduce global warming. Trees in the US are growing 1% bigger every year, partly due to fertilizer which the Left wants to ban.”
(Mary Dowling) A new study, an actual scientific study, found that plants will absorb 20 percent more carbon dioxide than predicted by the end of the century. This strongly suggests climate models are overestimating how fast the planet will warm.
Trinity College Dublin said its research painted an “uncharacteristically upbeat picture for the planet” after finding models had failed to take into account all the elements of photosynthesis.
During photosynthesis, green plants use light energy from the sun to convert carbon dioxide, water, and minerals into the sugars they need for growth.
