You noted the first two reasons for the greening and left out the third because the third reason is that more CO2 in the air feeds plants and trees. This is what you and other leftists call cherry picking.

No, you didn't, you only copied the first two reasons from the article. You left out the last reason about the added plant and tree food in the air.

I've said here many times that I do not dispute that CO2 is a warming gas and that it is increasing from humans and that it will or could cause warming.
I dispute (or question) the claim that all of the warming that we have had is from CO2.

Many, if not most of the articles I linked to say it is happening. So?...

The article says the Earth is getting greener due to human use of fossil fuels. It lists 3 reasons for it:
1) by displacing firewood as a fuel
2) by warming the climate;
3) by raising carbon dioxide levels, which raise plant growth rates.
I don't dispute these 3 reasons listed as to why the Earth has greened from fossil fuels.
I question number 2, the amount
of warming that scientists claimed it has caused. As the NASA article I linked to in the other thread shows, scientists are realizing that the Sun is playing a bigger role than they realized. Put another way, they don't fully understand climate science yet.
Meanwhile policy-makers eagerly want us to go along with a massive transformation of our society into some low-consumption and heavily socialist regulated economy along with a massive transfer of our wealth to the third world as reparations for colonialism and to help build up their countries so that more of their women can get jobs and hence have less kids so that this slows down population growth.
It's not going to happen under my watch if I can help it...
