A recent study, published in Astrobiology, a peer-review journal, will drive the man-made global warming crowd over the edge. Researchers were looking for other planets best suited for sustaining life, but first they needed to determine what would be the optimal conditions for life.
The group concluded that ideal temperature would be 5 degrees Celsius (9 degrees Fahrenheit) warmer than earth’s current average temperature. This would be optimal for plant and animal life.
Commenting on the study, Climate Realism writes:
The ideal temperature for planetary life is five degrees Celsius warmer than the present, scientists report in the peer-reviewed journal Astrobiology. The findings debunk climate activist claims that a modestly warming Earth is creating a climate crisis.
A team of scientists set out to make the search for life on planets outside our solar system more efficient. To do so, they determined to identify what planetary factors are ideal for life. After substantial research and consideration, the scientists found “Based on our experience from Earth, the highest biomass and biodiversity is present in tropical rainforests, and the least in cold polar regions. Thus, higher temperatures than currently existing on Earth seem to be more favorable.”
James Taylor, the article’s author, expects there will be intense lobbying by the global warming activists to have this study withdrawn.
But it’s not just warmer temperatures that would improve life, so would more CO2.
Though C02 has been demonized by the global warming crowd, greenhouses often pump in CO2 because plants grow faster and bigger with higher levels of CO2. There are several businesses that provide CO2 generators for Greenhouses and shockingly some of them use natural gas (gasp).
The earth has about 350 ppm to 400 ppm of CO2 in its atmosphere and it’s estimated, depending on the plant, they thrive best at levels ranging between 700 ppm to 1,500 ppm.
The Ontario government’s Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (Canada) released this fact sheet about CO2 recommending that Greenhouses increase CO2 levels to 1,000 ppm for optimal growth. This will increase the rate of photosynthesis by 50%:
For the majority of greenhouse crops, net photosynthesis increases as CO2 levels increase from 340–1,000 ppm (parts per million). Most crops show that for any given level of photosynthetically active radiation (PAR), increasing the CO2 level to 1,000 ppm will increase the photosynthesis by about 50% over ambient CO2 levels.
And of course, there was also this 2016 study by NASA, that stated:
From 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.
