Water, not temperature, limits global forest growth as climate warms. The growth of forest trees all over the world is becoming more water-limited as the climate warms. The effect is most evident in northern climates and at high altitudes where the primary limitation on tree growth had been cold temperatures. The research details the first time that changes in tree growth in response to current climate changes have been mapped at a near-global scale. Source 1w.
Man is trying to get to Mars while creating a Mars environment here by their lack of concern for the environment. If there are no trees we are dead.
