Subject Index Summary
Evolution (Terrestrial Plants: CO2-Induced): As recently as two decades ago, climate alarmists were predicting that CO2-induced global warming would occur too fast for evolutionary processes to keep pace with it, thereby greatly enhancing the probability of the extinction of numerous species of terrestrial plants. With the passage of time, however, this claim has gradually lost credibility; and it now appears that the increase in the air's CO2 content itself may hasten the development of those life-preserving and life-enhancing evolutionary processes.
