Climate Common Sense is not a sceptical site but a non-believer's site .Global warming and cooling are natural phenomena and carbon dioxide is a lovely gas vital to plant growth. Global Warming has stopped and Climate Change ( I call it Weather) is the new manufactured bogeyman. This website will present a realist view on the Climate Change debate.

These scientists have found that after a decade warming and increasing plant growth (6%) the last decade has indicated a slight drop in worldwide plant growth (1%) and therefore it must have been caused by global warming induced droughts . Of course I am happy to see that the results they have obtained correspond exactly with a slight cooling trend worldwide over the last decade which has been documented by skeptics time and again. This analysis suffers from the garbage-in garbage-out problem in attempting to correlate plant growth with a faulty temperature record. As a former nurseryman I know how sensitive plant growth is to temperature and the satellite results are no surprise and seem to be tracking the real temperature record .
