The planet is 10 percent greener today than it was in 2000, NASA says, which means better conditions for growing crops. Forests are also expanding while deserts are becoming more fertile and usable for agriculture.
All in all, the global Vegetation Index rose from 0.0936 to 0.1029 between 2000 and 2021, a 9.94 percent increase.
“10 percent greening in 20 years! We are incredibly fortunate!” announced Zoe Phin, a researcher who compiled the data into a chart for her blog.
“I just wish everyone felt that way. But you know not everyone does. To the extent that humans enhance global greening is precisely what social parasites want to tax and regulate. No good deed goes unpunished.”
A separate German study found that the globe has been greening for at least the past three decades. Satellite imagery suggests that vegetation has been expanding at a growing rate, contracting the gloom-and-doom narrative being spread by the climate alarmists.
Back in 2018, research found that the Sahara Desert, the largest in the world, had shrunk by more than 8 percent over the past three decades. This is truly profound as the Sahara covers an expansive 9.2 million square kilometers of territory.
“Eight percent means more than 700,000 square kilometers more area that’s become green – an area almost as big as Germany and France combined,” reports P. Gosselin.
“So in terms of vegetation, the planet probably hasn’t had it this nice in about 1,000 years.”
“Global warming” is a good thing – it’s healing the planet!
Most of this greening is caused by greenhouse gases – you know, those “horrible” emissions that the climate fanatics insist are going to kill us all. Truth be told, greenhouse gases are making the planet more habitable for humans and other life forms.
One study calls this phenomenon carbon dioxide (CO2) fertilization, which is far more accurate than calling it CO2 “pollution” as many in the mainstream media continue to do.
By the year 2100, all this greening will offset 17 years’ worth of anthropogenic CO2 emissions, rendering all this “pollution” as if it never even happened. In other words, there will be only benefits and no drawbacks from all this “global warming” that is taking place.
“There are many more studies underpinning the good news of the greening planet – thanks in large part to mankind,” notes Gosselin. “It’s not as bad as the crybaby activists and media depict it to be. Not even close.”
The problem is that there is no money to be made from telling everyone that the planet is just fine, and to continue living as normal. There would be no “need” for a “green” shift away from fossil fuels, and no “need” to stop eating meat, among other such nonsense.
The powers that be have to keep the “climate change” ruse going in order to advance their globalist agenda. Without climate change, there would be no excuse to steal people’s freedoms and liberties while imposing hell on earth as the “solution” to all of these manufactured climate woes.
“Food security will always be a factor because as long as global population increases, so must global agricultural production increase. That said (the need for agricultural output to keep pace with population), by far the biggest threat to humanity, is NOT climate change,” wrote one commenter at WattsUpWithThat.com.
“The biggest threat to humanity and resulting environmental destruction that a global famine would bring is Climate Change policy – the UN’s Socialist-Marxist climate policy to destroy access to affordable, abundant fossil fuels necessary to sustain global agricultural output.”
