BUT THE LITTLE AUTISTIC KID FROM SWEDEN SAYS IT'S TRUE, SO IT MUST BE!
(Plus, I wrote that in all caps, so that adds credibility to my claim.)

Read the history of society in the Victorian Era
That is us and our society if we stop burning fossil fuels. Short brutal lives, filled with misery and sickness.
Its not the oil companies that will suffer if we stop burning fossil fuels - its us!!!
Why do you think Justin Trudeau bought a pipeline!
Talk about brain washed....you are a fool if you think renewables will do it for us
A quarter to half of Earth’s vegetated lands has shown significant greening over the last 35 years largely due to rising levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide, according to a new study published in the journal Nature Climate Change on April 25.
An international team of 32 authors from 24 institutions in eight countries led the effort, which involved using satellite data from NASA’s Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectrometer and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer instruments to help determine the leaf area index, or amount of leaf cover, over the planet’s vegetated regions. The greening represents an increase in leaves on plants and trees equivalent in area to two times the continental United States.
Green leaves use energy from sunlight through photosynthesis to chemically combine carbon dioxide drawn in from the air with water and nutrients tapped from the ground to produce sugars, which are the main source of food, fiber and fuel for life on Earth. Studies have shown that increased concentrations of carbon dioxide increase photosynthesis, spurring plant growth.
The study notes that birds are indicators of environmental health, signaling that natural systems across the U.S. and Canada are now being so severely impacted by human activities that they no longer support the same robust wildlife populations.
