Biospheric Breakdown: What We Must Do to Prevent It?: The primary ameliorative measure is as simple as A,B,C ... or make that C,O,2.

Subject Index Summaries
Cloud Condensation Nuclei (Climatic Effects of Biologically-Produced Aerosols and Gases): As we learn more and more about the effects of the gaseous emissions associated with warming-induced increases in the biological activities of both terrestrial and aquatic plants, it is becoming ever more clear that one of their ultimate environmental impacts is the countering of the impetus for global warming.

Health Effects (Temperature - Respiratory): Which is better, warmer or colder, with respect to the respiratory health of earth's populace?

Journal Reviews
Seven Decades of Indian Monsoon Prediction Failure: With all our scientific advances, why haven't the model predictions improved?

The Pre-Observational Mean Temperature of Tachlovice, Czech Republic: What does its improved assessment imply about the nature of 20th-century warming?

Ultra-High CO2 Concentrations: Their Impact on Vitrified Sweetgum Shoots: A nearly 30-fold increase in the air's CO2 concentration is still not enough to produce negative consequences for the growth of sweetgum plantlets.

Effects of Ultra-High Atmospheric CO2 Concentrations on the Growth of Three Laminaceae Species: It is sometimes said that too much of a good thing can be harmful.  But could earth's plants ever get too much CO2?

More Evidence that Anthropogenic Aerosols Enhance the Growth of Forests: Can anything good possibly come from air pollution?
