Scientists from the U.S. found that global warming could be beneficial. The increase in temperature and accumulation of greenhouse gases good effect on the trees. This, however, may be short-term phenomenon.
Briefly about research writes edition of Naked Science. 25 years scientists have observed the condition of the trees and the level of greenhouse gases at the Harvard forest. The researchers saw that the change in climate and atmospheric composition increased the speed of absorption by trees of carbon dioxide. For the period 1992 to 2015, it has almost doubled. Scientists believe that this is due to the constant growth of the trees.
In addition, the trees had a positive effect lowering the concentration of ozone, nitrogen and sulfur.
The researchers warned that the positive trend might change in the future. Trees may cease to grow, if the climate will become extreme.
