Subject Index Summary
Biospheric Productivity (Africa): In response to the supposedly most dramatic global warming of the past two millennia, which is claimed to have been driven by the even more unprecedented concomitant increase in atmospheric CO2 concentration, African vegetation appears to have fared remarkably well, growing ever more robustly and removing ever more carbon from the atmosphere in one of the hottest places on the planet.
