Claim: Increased carbon dioxide levels in air restrict plants’ ability to absorb nutrients

From the University of Gothenburg and the “this is why we buy CO2 generators for greenhouses“ department. The rapidly rising levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere affect plants’ absorption of nitrogen, which is the nutrient that restricts crop growth in most terrestrial ecosystems. Researchers at the University of Gothenburg have now revealed that the…

A benefit of increased Carbon Dioxide: increased efficiency in tree growth, no “Mike’s Nature trick” needed

Gosh, whouda thunk it? There goes Mann’s hockey stick. No wonder he had to truncate all the data after 1960 and splice on the instrumental record. Of course, as I’ve said before, Mann ignored Liebigs Law to make the “big lies” called “Mikes Nature trick” and “hide the decline“. Trees simply can’t be just a…

The Secret Life of Half-Life

Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach [see update at the end of the head post] I first got introduced to the idea of “half-life” in the 1950s because the topic of the day was nuclear fallout. We practiced hiding under our school desks if the bomb went off, and talked about how long you’d have to…
