Plant Growth Database (12 December 2019)
Our latest result of plant growth responses to atmospheric CO2 enrichment obtained from experiments described in the peer-reviewed scientific literature is for Andiroba (de Oliveira and Marenco 2019). To access the entire database, click here.

The Mitigating Influence of CO2 on Drought and Heat Stress in Wheat
(11 December 2019)
Elevated CO2 reduced the negative impacts of post-anthesis drought and heat stress on two wheat cultivars. This mitigating influence should translate to larger yields of grain in the future...

Plant Growth Database (10 December 2019)
Our latest result of plant growth responses to atmospheric CO2 enrichment obtained from experiments described in the peer-reviewed scientific literature is for Rice (Hasegawa et al., 2019). To access the entire database, click here.
A Marine Gastropod's Response to Ocean Acidification (9 December 2019)
Thanks to CO2-induced improvements in algae nutritional quality, the authors of this study say Eatoniella mortoni is able to enhance calcification and strengthen the thickness and crystalline structure of their shells under ocean acidification...

Plant Growth Database (5 December 2019)
Our latest result of plant growth responses to atmospheric CO2 enrichment obtained from experiments described in the peer-reviewed scientific literature is for Oilseed Rape (Juozapaitiene et al., 2019). To access the entire database, click here.

Recent Trends in Terrestrial Gross and Net Primary Productivity
(4 December 2019)
Between 2004 and 2012, satellite-derived measurements reveal global gross and net primary productivity have increased by 10% and 13.7%, respectively. Such enhancements run counter to the alarmist narrative of terrestrial ecosystem collapse due to global warming and its attendant host of climate catastrophes...

Plant Growth Database
(3 December 2019)
Our latest result of plant growth responses to atmospheric CO2 enrichment obtained from experiments described in the peer-reviewed scientific literature is for Queen Beer Orchid (Cho et al., 2019). To access the entire database, click here.


The Fortuitous Link Between CO2 Emissions and Economic Growth (2 December 2019)
This video segment discusses the proven fundamental link between CO2 emissions and economic growth. As countries have embraced and increased their production of fossil energy, their citizens have been amply rewarded with increased economic development and prosperity...

A Simple Visual Display of CO2-Induced Wheat Biomass and Water Use Efficiency Increases
(25 November 2019)
As illustrated in a graphic accompanying this review, as the air's CO2 concentration rises in the future, the wheat biomass of the two cultivars examined in this study will be improved along with their plant water use efficiency, regardless of nitrogen treatment...

Is Rising Atmospheric CO2 Causing Dangerous Global Warming? (25 November 2019)
Many people are concerned about the potential impacts of rising levels of atmospheric CO2. For years they have been bombarded with claims that unless its concentration is slowed or even reduced, dangerous global warming will ensue, producing all sorts of undesirable consequences with little to no positive effects. Watch this video to lean why this scenario is unlikely to occur and why CO2 is not the all-important driver of temperature that climate alarmists make it out to be...

Do Elevated Levels of CO2 Negatively Impact Human Cognition and Decision Making?
(22 November 2019)
In a word, no! And that answer holds through CO2 values ten times above that present in our atmosphere today...

The Combined Impact of CO2 and Salinity Stress on a Perennial Grass Species
(21 November 2019)
The growth-enhancing effects of elevated CO2 on Kentucky bluegrass ameliorated the negative effects of salinity stress, improving a number of growth-related parameters in a few short days...

Plant Growth Database
(21 November 2019)
Our latest result of plant growth responses to atmospheric CO2 enrichment obtained from experiments described in the peer-reviewed scientific literature is for Soybean (Zhang et al., 2018). To access the entire database, click here.

Plant Growth Database
(20 November 2019)
Our latest result of plant growth responses to atmospheric CO2 enrichment obtained from experiments described in the peer-reviewed scientific literature is for Lentil (Parvin et al., 2018). To access the entire database, click here.
A Warming Climate Enhances Bird Reproduction in Finland (18 November 2019)
Data collected on 20 songbirds over the 27-year period 1987-2013 reveals a warming climate had a positive linear relationship on bird reproduction...
