Subject Index Summary
Forests (Modern Growth Trends): Climate alarmists contend that the past century or so has experienced unprecedented increases in both atmospheric CO2 concentrations and air temperatures. And claiming that both of these environmental changes are bad for the biosphere, they have not hesitated to single out earth's trees as major recipients of negative environmental impacts. But is this really so? If it is, we should see evidence of it in modern growth trends of the world's forests, which was one of the chief reasons for researchers conducting the studies whose results are described in this summary paper.
