    To study the effect of global warming concomitant with rising CO2 on plant growth under field-like conditions, a CO2–temperature gradient chamber (CTGC) was created from a standard temperature gradient chamber (TGC). Despite great daily and seasonal changes in ambient air temperature, the...

    The article discusses various myths that attempt to discredit theories of global warming, and tells why the myths are false. One example is the myth that states carbon dioxide (CO2) levels only rose after the start of warm periods, so CO2 does not cause warming. In response, it is known that CO2...

    Emission pathways that are consistent with meeting the Paris Agreement goal of holding global mean temperature rise well below 2 °C often assume a temperature overshoot. In such overshoot scenarios, a given temperature limit is first exceeded and later returned to, under the assumption of...
