Climate Change Will Explode Plant Growth In The Future And This Is Bad Or Something

Members of the Cult of Climastrology can always find something to complain about

Here we go

By the end of the century plants could consume substantially more water, leaving less for people across North America, Europe, and Central Asia—even if it rains and snows more, a new study reports today in the journal Nature Geoscience.

Plants are the primary regulators of the water cycle, responsible for 60 percent of the flow of water from the land to the atmosphere. Research now shows how climate change is altering this vital cycle in several different ways.

Without massive reductions in carbon dioxide emissions in the coming decades, the global average temperature will rise between 4 and 6 degrees Celsius, with a near doubling of atmospheric CO2 by century’s end. Those hotter, CO2-rich future conditions are akin to turning up the heat and pumping CO2 into a greenhouse. The likely result, assuming no other limiting factors such as lack of nutrients, is an explosion of plant life. But that will leave considerably less water for people to use, said Mankin in an interview.

See? More plants are bad. And, yeah, they are actually saying that the global temperature will rise between 7.2 and 10.8 degrees Fahrenheit by 2100, despite the temp only going up 1.5F since 1850. Nope, no scaremongering.

Researchers have now shown a third effect: As CO2 levels rise, it amps up photosynthesis. Plants in this hotter, CO2-rich environment grow bigger, with more leaves. That means when it rains there will be far more wet leaves creating more surface area for more evaporation to occur. Computer modelling shows that such enhanced leaf evaporation has a large effect on runoff and soil moisture, says Mankin.

Computer models. Snort. It’s all just duckspeak.

    Temps have actually been going down long term,, every “fact” in fact is a lie.

  2. Professor Hale says:

    but, water in the air is the largest greenhouse gas. So less is better?

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      As you well know, water vapor is a dependent on temperature. In addition water vapor condenses and falls out of the air as precipitation so is quite variable relative to time and location.

    Somebody ask these “experts” what the land was like before people started building towns and cities.
