Global warming is good for agriculture, claims scientist



e earth is greener and farms are more productive because of the carbon dioxide emissions linked to global warming, an author of the original UN climate treaty has claimed.

The planet can support more people because CO2 has boosted crop yields, the scientist Indur Goklany has claimed in a controversial paper published by the Global Warming Policy Foundation, which is sceptical of climate change.

The report, Carbon Dioxide: The Good News, which has not been peer reviewed, proposes that the impact of rising carbon dioxide concentrations “is currently net beneficial for both humanity and the biosphere generally”.
