Settled science: Global warming now good for rainforests

The science is settled...
Global warming good for rainforests - Smithsonian

Rainforests flourished under conditions of global warming in the past and should do so in the future, say scientists at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute.

Climate change a threat to Amazon rainforest, warns WWF

Tropical rainforest and mountain species may be threatened by global warming

A number of studies suggest that the Amazon rainforest could be vulnerable to climate change. One model finds that the Amazon rainforest could be significantly, and possibly irrevocably, damaged by a warming of 2 - 3C

Without immediate climate action, sea level rise on the East Coast of the USA, the shift to an arid climate in California, disturbances of the Indian Summer Monsoon in India and Nepal or the dieback of the Amazon rainforest due to increasing drought, are likely to affect hundreds millions of people and cost hundreds of billions of dollars.

Amazon drought: A growing concern - Record droughts hit the Amazon's rain forests in 2005 and 2010. With climate models projecting more drying with global warming, researchers are keeping close watch for such extreme droughts.

Sir David will present a two-part television programme that will explore how climate change is altering the planet, from drought-hit rainforest to the decline of polar bears.

There's a lot more articles like this on google.
“We should have been warned by the CFC/ozone affair because the corruption of science in that was so bad that something like 80% of the measurements being made during that time were either faked, or incompetently done.”

- Scientist James Lovelock
