On the magnitude of the CO2 greenhouse effect
Empirical evidence indicates that the magnitude of global warming to be expected from the relase of CO2 into the atmosphere by the burning of fossil fuels has been greatly overestimated by scientists employing general circulation models of the atmosphere. Indeed, real-world data suggest that increasing levels of atmospheric CO2 are actually to be desired, as they have no significant climatic ramifications but tend to promote greater water use efficiency and productivity in the world's natural and managed forests, crops and rangelands.
