CNN recently reported that perhaps global warming is not as bad as most people think. Australian scientists have discovered the Earth may be more resilient to global warming than previously speculated. In fact, a warmer climate translates into a wetter planet which encourages the growth of more plants that soak up greenhouse gases.
“The global water cycle has changed in response to greenhouse emissions,” nearly 100 scientists claimed in a statement. “Forests, farms and grasslands across the world absorb significant volumes of greenhouse gases. They have potential to absorb more, ameliorating climate change. Properly managed, they could buy time for the world’s people to make the major reductions in greenhouse emissions from power generation, industry and transport that will be required to reduce the damage from climate change.”
