Scroll down for proof of the real planet's actual measured response to climate change and the increase in CO2 based on authentic science(which is mostly censored from headline news) ........vs the manufactured, computer simulated one based on subjectively chosen mathematical equations that is/are used to scare us........which is the one that makes constant headline news and results in silly anti scientific articles like this one about beer.

Global Green Up Slows Warming

Global Green Up Slows Warming

"The paper’s authors reviewed more than 250 published articles that have used satellite data, modeling, and field observations, to understand the causes and consequences of global greening. Among the key results, the authors noted that on a global scale greening can be attributed to the increase of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Rising levels of carbon dioxide increase the rate of photosynthesis and growth in plants."

metmike: Why isn't this paper, based on 250........let me repeat that number 250 published articles using the best technology known to science............getting much news coverage?

Because they don't want you to know this.

From the projections: According to climate models, the future looks even greener. The second map shows what the green-up might look like in the future based on the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP5) climate model, under a scenario in which increases in greenhouse gases lead to almost 5° Celsius (9° Fahrenheit) of warming by the end of the 21st century. Specifically, it shows the predicted change in the growing season’s “leaf area index” from 2081-2100 relative to 1981-2000. The chart below the map shows the predicted changes by latitude. Notice that high latitudes in the Northern Hemisphere are still expected to change the most.

metmike: There is almost no chance we will see that amount of warming.

Fossil fuels are the only true, green energy!

The authentic science(photosynthesis) shows it with EVERY SINGLE objective measure.

Even deserts are greening up a bit from it.

                Satellite data shows the per cent amount that foliage cover has changed around the world from 1982 to 2010.

Increased levels of carbon dioxide (CO2) have helped boost green foliage across the world's arid regions over the past 30 years through a process called CO2 fertilisation, according to CSIRO research.

Crop yields with climate change/increasing CO2........soybeans:

Yields have doubled in the last 40 years:

Soybeans: Yield by Year, US

There obviously are other contributing factors with genetics and farming technology but the +CO2 and weather have been a big plus.

With Corn, it's a different picture because of the  introduction of nitrogen fertilizer causing corn yields to triple real fast and nothing to do with CO2 or weather during that initial tripling. However, recent decades have featured a steady increase, along with a steady increase in CO2 and beneficial weather.

US Corn yield trends


A brief history of U.S. #corn yield growth since the 1860s  Notable growth in yields was seen after the adoption of modern fertilizers in the 1940s, which made drought years esp. in the 1980s stand out more than before (compare with 1930s Dust Bowl for example).

Here is irrefutable evidence using empirical data to show that the increase in  CO2 is causing a huge increase in crop yields/world food production. 

We can separate the CO2 effect out from other factors effecting crops and plants with many thousands of  studies that hold everything else constant, except CO2.

Observing and documenting the results of experiments with elevated CO2 levels, tell us what increasing CO2 does to many hundreds of plants. 

Here's how to access the empirical evidence/data from the site that has more of it than any other. Please go to this link:

Go to plant growth data base:

Go to plant dry weight(biomass):

Pick the name of a plant, any plant and go to it based on its starting letter. Let's pick soybeans. Go to the letter S,

Then scroll down and hit soybeans. This is what you get:

Glycine max (L.) Merr. [Soybean]




             300 ppm
            600 ppm
            900 ppm
 Number of Results            290
 Arithmetic Mean            47.9%
 Standard Error            2.2%

This tells us that there were 290 studies with the CO2 elevated by 300 ppm. The mean increase in plant biomass was 47.9% from all those studies. 

The individual studies are listed below that. 

USA Soybean yields in the real world since 1988 have doubled while CO2 increased by 65 ppm, so we have strong corroborating evidence.

Thanks John.

There really is no doubt. 

We live in a world with many millions of times more information available  to us at our fingertips compared to a century ago. 

At the same time,  humans have not evolved to where we can turn off our innate,  cognitive bias.......which compels us to interpret all information based on what we think that we know. 

If we are taught that there is a climate crisis........all new information is interpreted based on that assumption.

This applies in so many other realms too. People go to their favorite politically biased sites to hear the news the way that they like to hear it and they are TAUGHT what to think. Then, when they leave those sites, their brains interpret the million times greater amount of information from all other sources with cognitively biased assumptions that tell them what to allow in and what to reject. It can be 95% against what they think that they know and they will use the OTHER 5% to reinforce what they think that they know and reject every thing else.

Seriously, it's what accurately defines human behavior today in this advanced society.

Can't believe I left these studies out!

Carbon Dioxide Fertilization Greening Earth, Study Finds

From a quarter to half of Earth’s vegetated lands has shown significant greening over the last 35 years largely due to rising levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide, according to a new study published in the journal Nature Climate Change on April 25.

An international team of 32 authors from 24 institutions in eight countries led the effort, which involved using satellite data from NASA’s Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectrometer and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer instruments to help determine the leaf area index, or amount of leaf cover, over the planet’s vegetated regions. The greening represents an increase in leaves on plants and trees equivalent in area to two times the continental United States.

Results showed that carbon dioxide fertilization explains 70 percent of the greening effect, said co-author Ranga Myneni, a professor in the Department of Earth and Environment at Boston University. “The second most important driver is nitrogen, at 9 percent. So we see what an outsized role CO2 plays in this process.”

“While the detection of greening is based on data, the attribution to various drivers is based on models,” said co-author Josep Canadell of the Oceans and Atmosphere Division in the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation in Canberra, Australia. Canadell added that while the models represent the best possible simulation of Earth system components, they are continually being improved

This study shows NASA being dishonest. Reason below!

Human Activity in China and India Dominates the Greening of Earth, NASA Study Shows

If you read the study, you'll note that they actually tell us that the greening isn't really from the increase in beneficial CO2 from its key role in photosynthesis.

“When the greening of the Earth was first observed, we thought it was due to a warmer, wetter climate and fertilization from the added carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, leading to more leaf growth in northern forests, for instance. Now, with the MODIS data that lets us understand the phenomenon at really small scales, we see that humans are also contributing.”

This was achieved through multiple cropping practices, where a field is replanted to produce another harvest several times a year. Production of grains, vegetables, fruits and more have increased by about 35-40% since 2000 to feed their large populations.

China’s outsized contribution to the global greening trend comes in large part (42%) from programs to conserve and expand forests. These were developed in an effort to reduce the effects of soil erosion, air pollution and climate change. Another 32% there – and 82% of the greening seen in India – comes from intensive cultivation of food crops.


There is no doubt that China's tree planting has had an impact. However, it's the fact that  increasing CO2 increases the growth of WOODY STEMMED plants by as much as 50%(double most plants) compared to over a century ago that is causing the tree planting to be especially effective!

Plants were experiencing CO2 starvation at only 290 ppm compared to the current, 420 ppm(+130 ppm) which is double the benefits to most plants. Trees are as woody of a plant that exists on the planet.

Here's the honest science:

As Carbon Dioxide Grows More Abundant, Trees Are Growing Bigger, Study Finds

The chart above is based on CO2 going from 363 ppm to 405 ppm +42 ppm.

Multiply that X3 to get the full impact (+130 ppm) since CO2 started increasing from humans.


Go to this site for many 1,000s of studies that include numerous ones for most plants/trees.

We see very large increases in most studies for Aspen/Birch, so the decrease above suggests something must have happened outside of the impact of CO2 that messed up the results for the study above.

Terrified of Climate Change? You Might Have Eco-Anxiety
Time Magazine

What to know about eco-anxietyWritten by Jennifer Huizen on December 19, 2019 Medical news

Eco-anxiety refers to a fear of environmental damage or ecological disaster. This sense of anxiety is largely based on the current and predicted future state of the environment and human-induced climate change.
According to a 2018 national survey, almost 70% of people in the United States are worried about climate change, and around 51% feel “helpless.”
Anxiety around environmental issues may stem from the awareness of a rising risk of extreme weather events, losses of livelihood or housing, fears for future generations, and feelings of helplessness.
This article discusses eco-anxiety, including what it is, the common symptoms, and how to spot and manage it.

The Lancet on Climate Change: The need for context  

Indur M. Goklany

metmike: This graph shows us data from this extensive study. Climate related deaths and non climate related deaths from 1990 to 2017. There are 2 main things to note:

1. Climate related deaths are a small fraction of non climate related deaths.

2. Climate related deaths have dropped 50% over the last 3 decades.

If you also dial in the massive increase in food from atmospheric fertilization from beneficial CO2 and the continuation of the slow beneficial warming on this greening planet, you clearly have a climate OPTIMUM not a crisis.

This is the empirical data that defines the authentic science. Anybody that says something different is either ignorant of the authentic science or deceiving  ......that includes any brilliant scientists with numerous degrees.

Thanks, Jean!

This term and idea "tipping point" is complete nonsense and an ANTI science term that gets used for political agenda to scare people into acting immediately to save the planet or it will be too late because we only have X number of years left!!

The earth's environment/atmosphere/oceans operate with a feedback system that prevents "tipping points".

If that wasn't the case, all the previous warmings in the last 10,000 years would have resulted in tipping points that would have continued, out of control warming from positive feedbacks(melting ice, for instance).

Medieval Warm Period(climate optimum)-1,000 years ago-followed by-The Little Ice Age

Roman Warm Period(climate optimum)-2,000 years ago-followed by cooling

Minoan Warm Period(climate optimum)-3,500 years ago-followed by cooling

Holocene Climate Optimum-9,000-5,000 years ago-followed by cooling


The reason for past warmings was completely different than today. It was mainly natural, most likely from the sun. Today's warming is mostly from the increase in CO2 (from burning fossil fuels)  and the physics of greenhouse gas warming. 

Interestingly, the increase in CO2 this time, has also increased plant growth and foliage by 26% which is a NEGATIVE temperature feedback, which goes in the opposite direction of the FAKE tipping point political science theory. Previous warmings did not have this huge negative feedback from the huge boost we are seeing now from the wonderful GREENING of the planet.

The study that you sited was done by some really, really smart scientists. They use certain, reasonable assumptions and modeling to reach their conclusions. 

Almost everybody reading this, would likely agree that they must be right because they are using science and physics.

Let me tell you something about scientists on this topic.

People assume that scientists are all unbiased, Mother Theresa's trying to make the world a better place. 

Scientists are some of the most biased people I know and some are extremely arrogant(because they know they are smarter than everybody else), when it comes to blindly defending what they have already decided they know with certainty.

(Not all scientists are this way, however)

It really quite similar to politics (which also defines the climate crisis).

The Rs cling to their belief system, which causes them to interpret all new information to confirm what they think they know with certainty.

The Ds, while clinging to THEIR belief system, will take the exact same situation as the Rs and interpret everything the complete opposite based on THEIR belief system and come to completely opposite conclusions.

And both sides have brilliant people but somehow, they interpret the exact same situations completely differently and both are convinced that they are 100% right and the other side is 100% wrong.

How does this happen???

What happens is that each side uses only the elements which support what THEY WANT TO BELIEVE and discards everything else which contradicts it. So what one side considers the most important in defining the topic, the other side is discarding/rejecting and vice versa.

On the climate crisis. I can tell you with 1,000% certainty that this is what all the brilliant climate scientists who are  convinced that increasing CO2 is destroying the planet and threatening our existence are completely ignoring and the biggest reason that they are wrong:

And I can prove it!

We are supposedly killing the planet and there will be widespread crop failures and droughts, using models that DO NOT take into account photosynthesis. 

But look what happens when we DO USE photosynthesis:


The law of photosynthesis is indisputable and we have tens of thousands of studies that confirm that it will continue to green up the planet(increase food production) and that the optimal level is double where it is now. It is also a NEGATIVE FEEDBACK to global warming.


These brilliant scientists discard the authentic impact of photosynthesis on our planet and life on it. Their tunnel vision and looking only at elements that support what they WANT TO BELIEVE is the driving force.

That's what the title of this thread is supposed to reflect: "Death by greening"

Ironically, the solutions, wind, solar and batteries are wrecking the planet but being called GREEN energy, while fossil fuel emissions that we are told are KILLING the planet.........have greened up the planet by 26% since they increased from 290 parts per million to 420 ppm.

+5ppm CO2 = +1% plant growth

so +130 ppm CO2 = current +26% plant growth

It varies from plant to plant but that is the rock solid science in biology, agronomy and plant science which most climate scientists discard because it contradicts what they have already decided to believe and defend...........just like its politics not authentic science.

And thats also why climate science as we know it today, is mostly politics.

In addition, the rate of greenhouse gas warming from increasing CO2 DECREASES as CO2 goes up because its a logarithmic function.

This means that every additional added amount of CO2 has less warming impact than the previous added amount which works exactly AGAINST a tipping point, runaway warming. 

Take the graph below that has the amount of CO2 in the air on the Y axis and amount of forcing on the X axis(in watts/meter2).

Note that going from 0.000 to 0.0004 (400 parts per million) increased the radiative forcing from 0 to around 17 watts/M2.

When we go up another 0.0004  from 0.0004 to 0.0008(+400 ppm), the forcing only  goes from 17 W/M2 to 21 W/M2. That's only an increase of 4 W/M2, which is less than 30% of the increase of the first 400 ppm.

And you can see from  the flattening curve going to the right/increasing CO2,  represents that dropping rate of warming impact as CO2 increases.

So instead of accelerating, runaway warming at some magical tipping point,  manufactured  by people trying to scare us, the actual physics here show less and less warming as CO2 increases. This goes with the negative feedback caused by the planet greening up from photosynthesis as shown on previous pages in this thread.

How does temperature depend on CO2?

Here’s a credible source for you that backs everything up with informed research and clarity of understanding. 

Calculating The Full Costs Of Electrifying Everything Using Only Wind, Solar And Batteries

“For several years now, advocates of “decarbonizing” our energy system, along with promoters of wind and solar energy, have claimed that the cost of electricity from the wind and sun was dropping rapidly and either already was, or soon would be, less than the cost of generating the same electricity from fossil fuels. These claims are generally based on a metric called the “Levelized Cost of Energy,” which is designed to seem sophisticated to the uninitiated, but in the real world is completely misleading because it omits the largest costs of a system where most generation comes from intermittent sources. The large omitted costs are those for storage (batteries) and transmission. But as we now careen recklessly down the road to zero emissions, how much will these omitted costs really amount to?
A guy named Ken Gregory has recently (December 20, 2021, updated January 10, 2022) come out with a Report at a Canadian website called Friends of Science with the title “The Cost of Net Zero Electrification of the U.S.A.” A somewhat abbreviated version of Gregory’s Report has also appeared at Watts Up With That here. Gregory provides a tentative number for the additional storage costs that could be necessary for full electrification of the United States system, with all current fossil fuel generation replaced by wind and solar. That number is $433 trillion. Since the current U.S. annual GDP is about $21 trillion, you will recognize that the $433 trillion represents more than 20 times full U.S. annual GDP. In the post I will give some reasons why Gregory may even be underestimating what the cost would ultimately prove to be.”

Climate change report: Heat-related deaths on track to rise 370% by mid-century

Climate change is set to cause a 4.7-fold surge in heat-related deaths by mid-century if government inaction on global warming continues, a report published Tuesday found.

Over 100 million more people experienced food insecurity in 2021 and human climate pollution was "directly to blame," said Macmillan,


Scroll down from the top of this link to see the proof that climate change causing food insecurity is nonsense:

CO2 is a beneficial gas greening up the planet and has INCREASED global food production by 26% the past century. The optimal level for most life is 900 parts per million. Currently we are just less  than half that at 420 ppm.

The current climate optimum (not a crisis) is still cooler than the temperature that most life prefers on this planet and not nearly as warm as the Holocene Climate Optimum in the higher latitudes 6,000+ years ago.

The Holocene Climate Optimum (HCO) was a warm period in the first half of the Holoceneepoch, that occurred in the interval roughly 9,500 to 5,500 years BP,[1] with a thermal maximum around 8000 years BP.


Study: Cold kills 20 times more people than heat

The heresy of heat and cold deaths


The indisputable truth, backed by all the authentic science and data is the current climate OPTIMUM is SAVING MANY LIVES!  Most life on this greening planet would prefer MORE OF IT!

It doesn't matter what I, or you for that matter, believe. The data  shows that by no metric can the current state of the climate be considered an emergency or crisis. In fact, the human condition continues to improve and that makes me very thankful and excited for the future.

China promised to strictly control coal then started 182 coal power plants instead

How China Dominates the World – And Lies about Climate Commitment

China gets tons of flack for being run by the Communist party.

Here in the United States our economy/government uses markets based on free enterprise and capitalism. Businesses and services are free of government control.

Wanna bet???

Our Environmental Protection Agency ruled 14 years ago that CO2 was a pollutant in it’s endangerment finding,  threatening the public health and welfare of current and future generations.
It has denied over a dozen petitions to try to overturn this anti science ruling since then.

Endangerment and Cause or Contribute Findings for Greenhouse Gases Under Section 202(a) of the Clean Air Act

In 2022 the Supreme Court restricted the EPAs ability to directly mandate carbon emissions but that didn’t stop the dishonest EPA/government.
They want to go around the Supreme Court and require coal and natural gas burning plants to have new technologies (that don’t exist now in some cases) that reduce planet greening, crop enriching CO2 emissions by 90%.
In other words, shut down all the coal plants.

EPA Proposes New Carbon Pollution Standards for Fossil Fuel-Fired Power Plants to Tackle the Climate Crisis and Protect Public Health

Then you have the Biden administration using almost a trillion dollars of government force on the markets with  fake green energy schemes, subsidies, tax credits, rebates, mandates and other NON free market schemes. States like California having insane, impossible to meet government requirements/mandates.

China on the other hand has a government that’s building new coal power plants.

Maybe this is just a matter of China  having a smart government compared to our current dumb government when it comes to energy policies  but make no mistake fake green energy in the United States is anything but a free market enterprise.

And most of the world understands this. The government’s support and crony capitalism will run their course and we’ll end up using mostly fossil fuels in a couple decades because of the laws of physics, science and economics……just having to learn some costly lessons in the short term.

How Is This science?

The REAL  scientifically authentic “green” energy sources are the ones massively greening up the planet via the indisputable law of photosynthesis.
Best weather and climate for most life and crop growing since the Medieval Warm Period.

A booming biosphere and climate optimum for most life thanks to the increase in the beneficial gas, CO2.
Its the building block for all life and still less than half of the optimal level for plants.

But  the sea levels are increasing at 1 inch per decade!!!

We can’t have that!

So let’s wreck the planet  with wind, solar and batteries and convince people that it’s to save the planet from the increasing beneficial gas, which is causing the climate optimum.

Carbon Dioxide Fertilization Greening Earth, Study Finds

An international team of 32 authors from 24 institutions in eight countries led the effort, which involved using satellite data from NASA’s Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectrometer and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer instruments to help determine the leaf area index, or amount of leaf cover, over the planet’s vegetated regions. The greening represents an increase in leaves on plants and trees equivalent in area to two times the continental United States.

Deserts ‘greening’ from rising CO2

Global Green Up Slows Warming

“The paper’s authors reviewed more than 250 published articles that have used satellite data, modeling, and field observations, to understand the causes and consequences of global greening. Among the key results, the authors noted that on a global scale greening can be attributed to the increase of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Rising levels of carbon dioxide increase the rate of photosynthesis and growth in plants.”

Fear-mongering about 2C increase in temperature is a joke. The Earth has been in the Pleistocene Ice Age for 2.6M yrs. Even this interglacial period is colder than Earth’s climate was for more than 200M yrs before this Ice Age began. Here’s the past 65M yrs of global ocean temp.

A huge reason for me to be here is to learn, then generously share with/teach others what I’ve learned.

No affiliation with any political parties.

Just a dedication to always using the authentic scientific method.

Objectively applying it, including to fact check and try to prove my own assumptions wrong…….which is a Great source for learning and sincere self reflection.

Discernment in the end, hopefully means lining up with truths that are independent of the powerful forces in todays world, especially in politics that exist to convince people to believe in things that enrich that source dor their agenda.

My agenda is to help people, especially here, by making the world a better and more enlightened/smarter place!!!

The reward?

Learning more the past 6 years doing this than during the previous 26 years. Appreciating humanity and life much more.
The best way to learn something….is often to teach it. Not just gloss over it quickly but instead understand it enough to be able to explain it and teach it to other people.

Its true and extremely rewarding compared to going to a social site that has endless political bickering or an echo chamber of like minded people that reinforce each other with narratives about what they want to believe. 

And I get to pick my favorite topics.

Trading, science, WEATHER, chess and in recent years, thanks to being moderator….politics.

Of extremely relevant significance................only 6% of scientists identify as Republicans!  A person's political affiliation has a very powerful impact in how they think and what they believe. Often, they affiliate with a party because of what they believe but its a reinforcing thing and science has been greatly corrupted by politics. If only 6% of scientists are republicans, then it's obvious what side is corrupting climate science.....BIG TIME!

I state this as an independent, objective atmospheric scientist that picks authentic science from BOTH parties and rejects junk science and DISinformation from BOTH parties......using facts/evidence and observations that are proven science.

Trends in American scientists’ political donations and implications for trust in science

Nonetheless, there is evidence that most American scientists favor the Democratic Party; a 2009 Pew survey found that 55 percent of scientists identify as Democrats, while just 6 percent say they are Republicans (32 percent identify as independents) (Rosenberg, 2009).


However they try to spin it, the vast majority of scientists are not Rs and scientists are not little Mother Theresa's in lab coats all trying to make the world a better more objectively honest place. They have political bias that impacts their work and opinions and some are corrupted by the same things that corrupt our that funds their work.

Africa Is Plunging Into a Climate Nightmare While the World Watches | Opinion

Temperature increase and falling agriculture productivity are not just harming food security but also exacerbating human displacement and the danger of potential conflicts.


The biggest impact from the increase of beneficial CO2 is a massive GREENING of the planet and increase in food production.

He uses scary words...........I have something more powerful. The authentic data/observations that prove what's REALLY happening:

How Africa’s Great Green Wall Will Make the Sahel Green Again


Gardner Policy Series

World and Regional Trend Crop Yields in an Era of Climate Change

It's an indisputable, scientific, biological and agronomic climate OPTIMUM for life on this planet and for global food production......NOT a climate CRISIS!

Yes, it's 1 deg C warmer than a century ago and the atmosphere holds 7% more water vapor so heavy rain events HAVE increased  a bit but the benefits for life are 10X greater than the negatives. 


But agricultural production in Africa HAS IN FACT DECREASED despite it massively INCREASING across the rest of the planet. Is climate change defying physical laws/photosynthesis and singling out/punishing just Africa for some reason?

There's MUCH MORE to it than climate change, though this guy that wrote the opinion piece wants to put all the blame on climate change FOR POLITICAL AGENDA!!!

Why agricultural production in sub-Saharan Africa remains low compared to the rest of the world – a historical perspective

Figure 1. World agricultural production per capita 1961–2005 (index 1961 = 100) (Hazell & Wood, Citation2008).

The overriding focus on growing the economy, rather than economic development, has failed to consider the influence of complex social and economic systems on agricultural production. Consequently, despite sporadic attempts to do so, there has been little sustained and persistent effort to develop commercial farming skills, functional value chains, rural financial institutions and associated infrastructure, which are all essential for farmers to transition from subsistence to commercial farming


We should also note that the drop in agricultural production in Africa in the 60's/70's took place during global COOLING!

In the 1980's/90's when global warming accelerated, agricultural production increased a bit. There are some bad things happening in Africa causing this but there is NO correlation or causation between climate change and Africa's agricultural production......just the OPPOSITE!

                Satellite data shows the per cent amount that foliage cover has changed around the world from 1982 to 2010.

Increased levels of carbon dioxide (CO2) have helped boost green foliage across the world's arid regions over the past 30 years through a process called CO2 fertilisation, according to CSIRO research.
