The Curse of the Longwave Feedbacks in Climate Models: Just how bad are they?

Subject Index Summary
Soil Erosion: In a book he wrote and self-published a quarter-century ago - Carbon Dioxide and Global Change: Earth in Transition - S.B. Idso (1989) predicted that "as a result of the direct effects of atmospheric CO2 enrichment upon the primary plant processes of photosynthesis and transpiration ... many plants will greatly expand their ranges with augmented water use efficiencies, stabilizing the soil and protecting it from erosion." Was he correct?
