True Greens will surely be torn

If the paper is right, it’s a reason to plant many more trees, but it diminishes the role of CO2, shows the climate models are pathetically inadequate and is another reason why a carbon market, giant windfarms, and solar panels are a waste of time and money.

More inconvenient truths for Al Gore and his toadies.

Greenies should be a lot more concerned about the possible effects hundreds of thousands of windmills will have on downrange climate.

“Do forests drive wind & bring rain?”

Why, any boy knows that the wind blows only because those trees start moving & they stir the air. And if you stand under a tree after a storm, you’re gonna get wet.

Here’s an interesting map.

Has anyone done any research on how some of the giant windfarms impact this delicate balance? Just curious.

The ‘answer’ is that there is no SINGLE ANSWER.

The Jet Stream is caused by different factors than ground wind. Ground wind is caused by various forces, including the respiration of the trees and plants. One of the larger factors is the movement from high to low pressure zones. The movement of the pressure zones is largely controlled by the Jet Stream. (at least in zones surrounding the jet stream).

Moisture evaporation (Heat from Sun) causes updrafts, electrical discharges cause certain flows of wind around them, traffic flow along a highway, a train speeding down the tracks, and butterflies flapping their wings.

since Israel replanted the forests that the Arabs cut down, the annual rainfall has increased proportionately with the increase in trees.

Nice to see it recognised.

But, how do trees call rain? Its almost like there is a God or something.

Dude! Wait, what?

Climate models are wrong?

No way, dude. No way!

This article demonstrates how much we have yet to learn about weather and climate.

(If they plant trees in the Sahara, will it return to being a lake? Just wondering.)

As they dig deeper, I believe they will find that the growth & respiration of plants play a great part in this weather influence.

Anyone who has lived in the woods has a sense that the trees do more than just stand there.
