1) Rising CO2 why it's a sign of the end of the Age!
There are any amount of people willing to be seen shouting and waving their arms that CO2 emissions will lead to the end of the earth in 12 or 10 years, or 12 years after whenever the last prediction failed. They are indeed a sign. Atmospheric CO2 is going up. BUT it is a sign of the greatest blessing to the poured out that the earth has ever seen!
He causes the grass to grow for the cattle, and herb for the service of man: that he may bring forth food out of the earth; (Psalm 104:14)
The psalmist knew that somehow with rain and other means the Creator and Sustainer causes grass and herbs to grow. Human animals can be incredibly selfish. Many have no idea of the needs of the plants and other animals. The Bible is a book for all time, so even though the ancients had no idea about CO2, which is a trace gas and a tiny proportion of the atmosphere, they wrote the eternal truths of the nature of the earth.
Praise the LORD from the earth, ye dragons, and all deeps: Fire, and hail; snow, and vapour; stormy wind fulfilling his word: (Psalm 148:7-8)
That word 'vapour' in Hebrew means also the waft of incense smoke or smoke, which shows that the ancient Hebrews knew either that the clouds were vapour or that the atmosphere was. We would put fire with smoke, but the set of words suggests the vapour is clouds or moisture of the air. The NIV seeing the set of words translated the common Hebrew word from fire esh as as 'lightning' and 'vapour' as clouds –
Praise the Lord from the earth,
you great sea creatures and all ocean depths,
lightning and hail, snow and clouds,
stormy winds that do his bidding, NIV
By so doing the NIV translators may cause many to miss a modern point: The Psalmist is saying that God is in control of the vapour which includes not only CO2 but water as a gas where Water vapor is known to be Earth's most abundant greenhouse gas NASA where gasses fulfil God's promises.
So when I hear that, due to atmospheric CO2 increase, the dry areas of the earth are greening, I Take Note.
It is not fringe research! NASA released a three decades long research project which is only now making waves due to the outspoken former leader of Greenpeace Patrick Moore!
In April 2016 NASA released a report showing all the earth had dramatically greened, but the dry areas more than expected.
A quarter to half of Earth’s vegetated lands has shown significant greening over the last 35 years largely due to rising levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide, according to a new study published in the journal Nature Climate Change on April 25.
An international team of 32 authors from 24 institutions in eight countries led the effort, which involved using satellite data from NASA’s Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectrometer and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer instruments to help determine the leaf area index, or amount of leaf cover, over the planet’s vegetated regions. The greening represents an increase in leaves on plants and trees equivalent in area to two times the continental United States.
Results showed that carbon dioxide fertilization explains 70 percent of the greening effect, said co-author Ranga Myneni, a professor in the Department of Earth and Environment at Boston University. “The second most important driver is nitrogen, at 9 percent. So we see what an outsized role CO2 plays in this process.”
It is not an opinion- the NASA satellites measured the amount of leaf green based on the reflection from it and they measured its change over time. Those diving deeper into the report found more:
Green vegetation all around the world has increased by 14 percent, which would not have been possible without CO2.
While greening generally occurred everywhere, it was most prominently observed in the arid deserts of Northern Africa, and particularly in the Sahel region. Some of the Sahara Desert has actually re-greened, thanks to all that extra CO2.
“This is because plants lose less water in the process of absorbing carbon dioxide if the concentration of carbon dioxide is higher,” Climate Depot adds about the situation. “Ecosystems and farms will be less water-stressed at the end of this century than they are today during periods of low rainfall.”
“This greening is good news,” Climate Depot adds. “It means more food for insects and deer, for elephants and mice, for fish and whales. It means higher yields for farmers; indeed, the effect has probably added about $3 trillion to farm incomes over the last 30 years. So less land is needed to feed the human population and more can be spared for wildlife instead.”climatesciencenews.com
This fact that the 14% increase, apart from feeding an increased global population of both humans and animals (such is the mercy of God) is greening areas of deserts is interesting as I know one desert arid in area in particular is greening, that of Israel.
Recent regional scale analyses using satellite-based vegetation indices such as the Normalized Difference Vegetation Index have found extensive areas of dryland greening in areas of the Mediterranean, the Sahel, the Middle East and northern China, as well as greening trends in Mongolia and South America, according to the paper.
Lu and Wang considered other potential drivers that could have caused the greening, including increased rainfall and changes in land-management practices. But only carbon dioxide provided a global explanation for changes to dryland vegetation.wattsupwiththat
The researchers are confused, so greatly have their minds been affected by their theory, they can't see how greening could be good. Those, such as Indur Goklany, who research ideal conditions for growing food plants in air with up to 800 ppm CO2 and find that 400ppm is not enough, would not be surprised.

So confused are the 'experts' that “in post-modern climate science, your air-conditioner causes snowstorms, but if CO2 rises and plants grow — that’s “luck”. joannenova
We see how there was not 'luck' but a miracle found by the objective science of CO2! – they spent huge mounts of money and tied up a satellite for years looking for the deserts to increase, but found a miracle - yes – a natural process which people are screaming about hoping they have control over it, is Yahweh Elohim's direct work to begin to fulfil a promise.
I will open rivers in high places, and fountains in the midst of the valleys: I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water. I will plant in the wilderness the cedar, the shittah tree, and the myrtle, and the oil tree; I will set in the desert the fir tree, and the pine, and the box tree together: That they may see, and know, and consider, and understand together, that the hand of the LORD hath done this, and the Holy One of Israel hath created it. (Isaiah 41:18-20)
Who may see? NASA may see! Who shall know? Those who think! Who shall consider and understand? – us today!
Job hears first hand the 'hands on' role of Yahweh (He who will be) Elohim (Mighty Ones) of Israel over the wilderness.
By what way is the light parted, which scattereth the east wind upon the earth? Who hath divided a watercourse for the overflowing of waters, or a way for the lightning of thunder; To cause it to rain on the earth, where no man is; on the wilderness, wherein there is no man; To satisfy the desolate and waste ground; and to cause the bud of the tender herb to spring forth? (Job 38:24-27)
Even in the great deserts of the world there are plants and animals. The dryness of deserts we suspect is part of the curse of the earth due to sin, as food would be obtained by the sweat of the brow (Gen 3:19). But more so the dryness of the area about Israel is a direct result of the curse on the land.
Upon the land of my people shall come up thorns and briers; yea, upon all the houses of joy in the joyous city: Because the palaces shall be forsaken; the multitude of the city shall be left; the forts and towers shall be for dens for ever, a joy of wild asses, a pasture of flocks; Until the spirit be poured upon us from on high, and the wilderness be a fruitful field, and the fruitful field be counted for a forest. (Isaiah 32:13-15)
Israel was to be barren – until the time of the end. Let the hairs stand up on the back of your neck as you consider this! - Daniel was told his people would not be delivered by Messiah until people travelled to and fro and knowledge was increased (Dan 12:4). How do people travel to and fro? What is a result of people travelling to and fro? CO2 to the atmosphere! How do people know much more? They have reliable lighting to allow them to read at night, and gather to hear talks, they have leisure and transport to go to school and now they have a massive power hungry global computer network all pumping out CO2. Consider! Jews began to return to the land of Israel which was then either an arid desert or swamp, just as the motor car arrived!
All the ingredients of the miracle of Israel are there, both the desolation and the renewal:
He turns rivers into a wilderness, and the watersprings into dry ground; A fruitful land into barrenness, for the wickedness of them that dwell therein. (Psalm 107:33-34) He turns the wilderness into a standing water, and dry ground into watersprings. And there he makes the hungry to dwell, that they may prepare a city for habitation; (Psa 107:35-36)
We now know that this is not poetry. It is now proven by the witness of the eyes of history that the God of Israel made a once fertile area a barren desert. Mark Twain witnessed it as desert and so did the photographers of the American Colony. They recorded it as a witness. Now the God of Israel has made water springs come in the greened wilderness of Israel – and this too is documented. But of most interest is that the once marginal agricultural land of Israel in a dry climate is measurably more productive with greater CO2 in the global atmosphere.
To this day after billions spent they do not know all the mechanics of the full Carbon cycle, but it is known that the sea plays a large part.
Thou visit the earth, and water it: thou greatly enrich it with the river of God, which is full of water: thou prepare them corn, when thou hast so provided for it. Thou water the ridges thereof abundantly: thou settle the furrows thereof: thou make it soft with showers: thou bless the springing thereof. Thou crown the year with thy goodness; and thy paths drop fatness. They drop upon the pastures of the wilderness: and the little hills rejoice on every side. (Psalm 65:9-12)
How does the Creator and Sustainer bless the springing forth of corn? Crops don't just need water they need desperately large amounts of CO2 each morning to spring forth! It is also known that the hidden bugs (bacteria) in the soil of a grain crop play a part in creating CO2 for a grain crop, but that the crops rely each morning on the atmosphere being richly replenished with CO2 Plants suck half the CO2 out of the air around them before lunchtime each day.
A deficit of 10% in C02 at 150 m (above a corn field) during rapid photosynthesis may represent the gradient across which excess use by plants can be replaced from higher levels of the atmosphere.
CO2 is the magic gas that makes plants grow
The word 'magic' should be Miracle as it is the hands-on work of the Creator.
Now consider that we know that the atmospheric CO2 is rising yet we hear of drought and flood that leads to destruction of crops. Therefore the God of Israel is not blessing this evil age with all good things at once, but consider what if He is raising CO2 now which is a slow process to prepare the earth for the next age of blessing of the Kingdom where the desert shall blossom?
The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose. It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing: the glory of Lebanon shall be given unto it, the excellency of Carmel and Sharon, they shall see the glory of the LORD, and the excellency of our God. (Isaiah 35:1-2)
And the parched ground shall become a pool, and the thirsty land springs of water: in the habitation of dragons, where each lay, shall be grass with reeds and rushes. And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein. (Isaiah 35:7-8)
What if the fools, even us on the way of holiness err now in understanding? If the desert is to blossom as Isaiah writes there needs to be massive amounts of CO2 out there for it to happen. If this is to happen soon and suddenly the air must be rich already, the seeds blown there in the wind and then water is added!
Look at the wilderness of Israel already!
Do we see the signs? The ones on the placards? - what are we to take note of? We might note that the rate of atmospheric CO2 is going up and up despite dramatic global reductions of energy use that cut 17% of human made CO2 to atmosphere in April and regular reductions all of 2020 and into 2021.
They complained that plastic was polluting the oceans – then they found bugs ate it..
This evidence suggests human greed may leave messes, but they are thankfully not in control. The earth is greening for a reason – in preparation - for the new Eden!
For the LORD shall comfort Zion: he will comfort all her waste places; and he will make her wilderness like Eden, and her desert like the garden of the LORD; joy and gladness shall be found therein, thanksgiving, and the voice of melody. (Isaiah 51:3)
