Elevated CO2 Reduces Fluctuating Asymmetry of Oak Leaves: So how good or bad is that?

Subject Index Summaries
Roman Warm Period (South America): Did the Roman Warm Period extend into the Southern Hemisphere?  As in the case of the Medieval Warm Period that followed it, climate alarmists unanimously say no.  Real-world data, however, say yes.

Nutrients x CO2 Effects on Plants (Nitrogen - Trees: Spruce): How does the degree of soil nitrogen availability impact the aerial fertilization effect of atmospheric CO2 enrichment on the growth of spruce trees?

Journal Reviews
Synchronous Millennial-Scale Climatic Oscillations of the tropical Pacific and north Atlantic Oceans: The case for a worldwide millennial-scale oscillation of climate grows ever stronger, demonstrating that the global warming of the 20th century was not a consequence of the concomitant rise in the air's CO2 content.

Interior Alaska Temperatures: Are They the Canary-in-the-Coal-Mine of CO2-Induced Global Warming?: Since every other high-latitude place we have searched for the feathered harbinger of anthropogenic-induced climate change has proven clueless, perhaps this one will at last deliver the goods.

The Longevity of Amazonian Rainforest Trees: What are their upper age limits?  And what are the implications of that knowledge for tempering predicted CO2-induced global warming via biological carbon sequestration?

Effect of Atmospheric CO2 Enrichment on Isoprene Emissions from a Globally Ubiquitous Grass: Are they increased or decreased?  And why do we care?

Free Radical Scavenging Capacities of Winter Wheat: How may they be altered by global warming?  And why do we care?
