A Treeline Ecosystem in a CO2-Enriched World: Is there sufficient nitrogen in contemporary soils to sustain the enhanced growth typically provided by the aerial fertilization effect of rising atmospheric CO2 concentrations?

Subject Index Summary
Hurricanes (Pacific Ocean): Have hurricanes become more numerous and intense over the past century, in response to what climate alarmists typically describe as unprecedented global warming? As demonstrated by the findings of the several real-world (as opposed to climate model) studies described in this analysis of the peer-reviewed scientific literature, the answer - as it pertains to the Pacific Ocean - would appear to be a resounding NO!
