New paper finds 'much lower risk' to Amazon from climate change
A paper published today in Nature finds "a much lower risk of Amazon forest dieback under CO2-induced climate change if CO2 fertilization effects are as large as suggested by current models." The paper adds to other recent papers demonstrating the Amazon is resilient to climate change due to CO2 fertilization, and that Amazon trees will tolerate IPCC projected temperature in the year 2100.
