Who would have thought Ma Nature was so resilient? Actually she’s quite ingenious, suggests a report from from Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia that made its way into the online journal Nature.
What researchers learned was that increasing levels of carbon dioxide reduce the need of some trees for water.
With enough of what Al Gore and the kiddies at CRaP – the Climate Reality Project run by Mrs. Sen. Mark Udall – call “pollution,” trees are able to narrow down the pores in their leaves and still get plenty of carbon dioxide, better known as a “fertilizer.”
Those narrowed pores allow less water to evaporate from the leaf. Consequently the tree needs to draw less water from the ground.
Who would have thought? Well, clearly not people beholden to controversial political theories like anthropogenic global warming.
