C02 Is Good For The Planet




New NASA satellite data prove carbon dioxide is still GREENING the Earth

Scientists have known for many years that increased levels of carbon dioxide (CO2) have helped boost green foliage across the world’s arid regions. Australia’s Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), for instance, published a study in 2013, which found that CO2 fertilisation correlated with an 11 per cent increase in foliage cover from 1982-2010 across parts of the arid areas studied in Australia, North America, the Middle East and Africa.

They explain:

The fertilisation effect occurs where elevated CO2 enables a leaf during photosynthesis, the process by which green plants convert sunlight into sugar, to extract more carbon from the air or lose less water to the air, or both.

If elevated CO2 causes the water use of individual leaves to drop, plants in arid environments will respond by increasing their total numbers of leaves. These changes in leaf cover can be detected by satellite, particularly in deserts and savannas where the cover is less complete than in wet locations.

 Another study from Boston University in 2016 discovered that carbon dioxide emissions from industrial society had driven a huge growth in trees and other plants. Satellites showed that there had been significant greening of something between 25% and 50% of the Earth’s vegetated land over the last 33 years,  Just 4% of vegetated land has suffered from plant loss.

Other studies have found that the Sahara has shrunk by 8% in the same period.

Now up to date data from NASA confirms that these trends have continued, and that the planet is 10% greener than in 2000.

In any sane world, this fact would be welcomed. It may be one of the reasons why the UN Food and Agricultural Organisation is forecasting a record world grain harvest this year.

Instead we demonise carbon dioxide.


  1. ED ,please send this article to 2 mums Shaw and include a couple of razor blades and instructions on how to cut your wrists successfully, as we speak the little poofter wanker is pushing through under urgency “putting a price on carbon credits” , WTF is happening in our great Country ?



  2. greening of something between 25% and 50% of the Earth’s vegetated land over the last 33 years,
    Also ask about the greening of New Zealand, where did the money go for the billion trees that would be planted.
    – – – – – – – – – –
    All to be kept hidden by the likes of “Not funding Heat” that pressures advertisers, corporations and media so no “inconvenient facts” or ideas can be debated or discussed.
    ….. aims to ‘defund’ and de-platform its ideological opponents in order to make criticisms of green politics ‘unprofitable’. ……
    …. Nearly every paper in the country is now either backing the government’s campaigns on climate and Net Zero, or is calling for it to go harder and faster.
    The Express has its ‘Green Britain Needs You’ campaign, which claims green policies will generate £21 billion for the economy.
    And the Sun has its ‘Green Team’ campaign, which promises to save readers’ money and the planet.
    Reaching Net Zero may or may not be a worthy cause.
    But is it really true that suddenly abandoning fossil fuels, on which all modern civilisation has been built, can be achieved with no adverse economic effects?
    Who is scrutinising these claims if once sceptical papers like the Express are now committed to ‘campaigning’ on the issue and rather than reporting on it? ……

    All the little cogs of Bill Gates axis setting up “Coalition for Content Provenance and Authenticity (C2PA)”



  3. And bear in mind the level of CO2 in the atmosphere is currently about the lowest it has been for many millions of years. If it goes much lower life on Earth will face a great die off, far greater than the one Bill Gates and friends have planned.



  4. Nature has many elf-correcting features. This is probably one of them. Higher concentrations of CO2 will stimulate terrestrial plant growth (ignoring phytoplankton) which in tern will lock up the CO2 as mostly cellulose. The result: lower concentrations of atmospheric CO2.

    How come the media NEVER talk about this kind of self-correcting function? Any child could figure it out by putting 2 and 2 together…

    … Ah yes, 2 +2. Mathematics is “white supremacy” it seems. (Let me guess, the people making such a claim are almost exclusively white, privileged and totally obsessed with race.)
