Yes, you read that correctly: Forestation coverage of planet Earth is expanding, not shrinking as we're all told by the lying globalist media on a daily basis. (The same dishonest media that claimed New York City would now be under water from an apocalypse of melting ice caps... go figure.)
"We show that—contrary to the prevailing view that forest area has declined globally5—tree cover has increased by 2.24 million km2 (+7.1% relative to the 1982 level)," reports science study authors in this study entitled "Global land change from 1982 to 2016."
The study was primarily funded by NASA's Making Earth System Data Records for Use in Research Environments (MEaSUREs). It also enjoyed supporting funds from the World Resources Institute’s Global Restoration Initiative and the NASA Land-Cover and Land-Use Change (LCLUC) Program.
"Here we analyse 35 years’ worth of satellite data and provide a comprehensive record of global land-change dynamics during the period 1982–2016," the authors explain. "Global bare ground cover has decreased by 1.16 million km2 (?3.1%), most notably in agricultural regions in Asia."

The study documents the scientific reality that carbon dioxide supports the expansion of forests across the planet. That makes perfect sense, since CO2 is the "oxygen" of plant life. Without CO2, nearly all plant life on the planet would die, quickly followed by the total collapse of the food web, animal ecosystems and human civilization.
Currently, CO2 is at around 408 ppm in the atmosphere, a number that's dangerously low for plants (and forests), causing mass death of trees, food crops and even grasses. Climate change lunatics lie to the public and try to claim that CO2 levels have never been this high. Even NASA joins the conspiracy by selectively choosing data to show the public, distorting the true history of CO2 on planet Earth. In reality, CO2 levels have been over ten times higher in the past (over 4,000 ppm). Today's CO2 levels are near the lowest they've ever been in the history of the planet, and as they rise, plant life across Earth is bring slowly restored.
The left-wing anti-science media is now banning all content that questions the fake science of climate change, hoping to censor any real debate on the subject while pushing their own quack science CO2 "poison" lunacy.
The science morons on the Left who keep calling for eliminating all CO2 are, in effect, demanding their own mass suicide and the extinction of most life on planet Earth. It's the kind of suicidal, idiotic position that can only be pursued by scientifically illiterate, arrogant liberal mobs who know nothing about reality but are fixated on a delusional fairy tale pushed by Al Gore, an anti-science lunatic who profits from "carbon phobia."

Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is the founding editor of NaturalNews.com, a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com called "Food Forensics"), an environmental scientist, a patent holder for a cesium radioactive isotope elimination invention, a multiple award winner for outstanding journalism, a science news publisher and influential commentator on topics ranging from science and medicine to culture and politics.
Mike Adams also serves as the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation.
In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.
Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.
