Climate alarmists are continually warning the world about potentially-catastrophic negative consequences of CO2-induced global warming, which they contend will wreak havoc with Earth’s natural and agro-ecosystems. In this summary we review how vegetative productivity has fared throughout various countries in Asia outside of China over the past few decades, when air temperatures and atmospheric CO2 concentrations have risen to levels that climate alarmists claim are unprecedented over thousands (temperature) to millions (CO2 concentration) of years. For if these two factors are really as devastating as climate alarmists claim they are, we should surely see signs of their negative impacts on terrestrial vegetation over this crucial period of time. So what’s been happening in this regard?
