Benefits of global warming

November 14, 2010

Global warming is actually good for rainforests.

“Rainforests were doing very well” during the high-carbon, significantly-hotter “thermal maximum” period studied by the scientists. They found that rather than making species extinct the warmth drove diversity and brought many new species into the world – including both passionflowers and chocolate. [emphasis added.]

So there you have it: without an earlier period of global warming, we wouldn’t have chocolate.

    I’ve always said if global warming is real, who cares? I’m cold all the time anyway. Global warming would be a GOOD thing. Now it’s responsible for chocolate? I rest my case.
