“NASA climate model shows plants slow Global Warming by creating a new negative feedback in response to increased CO2“. Anthony Watts thinks that NASA has accidentally revealed that Global Warming, which isn’t happening, will “naturally” slow because of plant physiology.
But I thought that plants loved CO2, the gas that’s “essential to life!” Could it be that there’s less to this story than meets the eye? Italics mine:
Bounoua stressed that while the model’s results showed a negative feedback, it is not a strong enough response to alter the global warming trend that is expected. In fact, the present work is an example of how, over time, scientists will create more sophisticated models that will chip away at the uncertainty range of climate change and allow more accurate projections of future climate.
Of course any time there is an improvement in climate modeling Anthony’s readers howl that it’s proof that them durn scientists don’t know nuthin’ and we should wait – forever – until they finally figure it all out. Or that scientists need to start listening to the “wisdom of the bloggers.”
