Prominent global warming alarmist James Hansen admits in a new paper that temperatures are not warming as fast as predicted by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Hansen observes that carbon dioxide emissions are rising faster than IPCC forecasts, yet global temperatures are not following suit. Hansen speculates that emissions from coal-fired power plants emissions are fertilizing the biosphere and providing valuable nutrients that aid tissue growth. The extra tissue growth soaks up atmospheric carbon dioxide, which mitigates some of the IPCC’s expected warming.
