The latest “Vegetation Index” data from NASA shows that the Earth is getting progressively greener and lusher over time. 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.
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.”
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.
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.
