Why I Wish Global Warming To Be True

Many thanks to Half Empty (& the ninme delivery system) for sending this along.
The carbon dioxide emissions allegedly responsible for Al Gore’s “planetary emergency” are helping tomatoes beef up. The Center for the Study of Carbon Dioxide and Global Change maintains a database on field and laboratory experiments measuring plant growth response to CO2-enriched environments. Here’s the link for data on tomatoes.
A whopping 45 studies have examined the effects of CO2 enrichment on the garden tomato (lycopersicon eculentum). On average, garden tomatoes gain 32.6%, 40.9%, and 46.8% additional dry weight biomass, respectively, when grown in air containing an extra 300, 600, and 900 parts per million of CO2.
As I have been documenting, the tomatoes don't lie, and in my garden at least, there's been no warming in 5 years. Alas.
