Climate change will lead to forests in the African deserts

Post  Durham on Thu Jul 05, 2012 11:38 pm

Think they have been rumbled

A new study published in peer reviewed Nature Magazine, by a German university research team reveals that large swathes of Africa’s savannahs will become forests by the end of the century. Apparently atmospheric shifts and changes to the continent’s climate will see tree cover increase as critical levels of carbon dioxide are reached. Not only will this result in Africa becoming immersed in thousands of acres of beautiful oxygen-replenishing forests, the scientists believe the change will be gradual, meaning that there is no dangerous shock to the earth’s system. Dr Steve Higgins of Goethe University described the findings as “reassuring”. Carbon emissions are not all about melting icecaps…

I always feel deeply suspicious about anything that is to do with "climate change"

Well that is one good effect of climate change; though it dosen't really make up for melting ice caps, by far the biggest threat posed by climate change- man made or otherwise.

not at all, what you then get is another continent that opens up to habitation, lets not forget at one point there were forests and dinosaurs at the poles.

At another time the whole planet was almost an entire iceball.

climate changes all the time. It is probably what has driven human evolution.
