Many tree species do grow faster in climates that are warmer than their native range, especially where the added heat is combined with moist conditions, and faster growth is generally associated with lower density wood. This is why a lot of New Zealand's plantation pine is only good for paper pulp, the warmer wetter climate means that the trees grow fast and ...

Nothing to do with climate change . Faster growth produces somewhat lower density and strength. There are strength tables for wood written more than 50 years ago that have separate listings for "new " growth and "old" growth. "New " growth being trees growing faster in clear cut areas with less competition for water, light and ...

The UK Government already publishes information on this at the national level, which may be a useful guide for how to proceed at the local government level. The last UK Climate Change Risk Assessment was published in 2017 and the next one is imminent in mid-2021. They follow risk assessment methods set out in things like the HM Treasury Green Book, which, ...

The only answer I can come up with is related to isostasy. 1 - Poles melt, so there's more water in the oceans. 2 - As there's more water in the oceans, there's more weight on the oceanic crusts, so they bend, making deeper some parts of the oceans. 3 - The parts of the ocean that are deeper are in the centre of the oceans, far from continental crust. It ...

A one degree rise in temperature is barely a noticeable change. The biggest change is additional atmospheric carbon dioxide leads to sustained growth and longer growing seasons. CO2 availability is prime indicator for sustained plant growth. Alot of the tree's in LA and New York........ Are old. Some 2-3 centuries, which is why some are falling or dying. But ...

This study seems to suggest that global warming will change oceanic circulation and transfer a net increase of mass to the poles, closer to the axis of rotation, therefore speeding up the spin. article: https://www.newscientist.com/article/dn11555-global-warming-will-make-earth-spin-faster/ study: https://agupubs.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/pdf/10.1029/...
