Investigating the Major Factors of Wheat Production in India over the Past Four Decades (25 November 2020)
Since 1980, annual wheat production in India has increased by 43 Mt, the vast majority of which increase likely came from three factors: rising atmospheric CO2, the application of nitrogen fertilizer and irrigation...

Plant Growth Database (24 November 2020)

A Solar-Climate Link in Arid Central Asia (23 November 2020)
Over the past 11,000 years the Sun has likely been the major driver of temperature change in central Asia...

The Effects of CO2 and Water Stress on Bell Pepper
(20 November 2020)
Rising atmospheric CO2 is a management strategy farmers can count on to increase yields both now and in the future, even under water-limited stressful conditions of drought...

The Growth Response of Maize to CO2 across Two Generations
(16 November 2020)
Many positive growth-related enhancements from elevated CO2 increased from one generation to the next, signaling that the benefits of CO2 might be much larger than that reported in thousands of first generation experiments...

Projecting Mid- and Late-century Spring Potato Yields in South Korea
(13 November 2020)

Further Evidence the CO2 Fertilization Effect is Presently Enhancing Global Vegetative Productivity
(9 November 2020)
Not only has the planet's vegetative productivity increased since the year 2000, its increase has occurred under no additional expense of water, evidenced by a reduction in transpiration and improvement in plant water use efficiency over the corresponding period. What makes these findings even more astounding is the fact that they have ensued despite climate alarmists projections (and claims) to the contrary of widespread global vegetative decline, which they ironically assert should be happening in consequence of rising atmospheric CO2. They could not have got it more backwards!...

A Two-and-a-half Century Winter Temperature Reconstruction from Northern China
(6 November 2020)
According to climate alarmist theory, CO2-induced global warming (if it is occurring) should be most evident in high latitude regions during winter months. So, how clear is the signal in this 249-year reconstruction of winter temperatures from northern China?...

Plant Growth Database (5 November 2020)
Our latest result of plant growth responses to atmospheric CO2 enrichment obtained from experiments described in the peer-reviewed scientific literature is for Multi-leaf Paris (Qiang et al., 2020). To access the entire database, click here.
