An interesting read on the potential if not unknown benefits of a greening planet in relation to cities.

Worth a look, if only to confirm that some researchers out there are considering such trade-offs and positives, even if alarmists will claim nigh every change to every climate system is somehow almost always negative for humans, contrary to almost all science and logic.


Cooling due to urban greening also occurs predominantly via increased evapotranspiration3,4 but requires consistently moist soil conditions either from precipitation or irrigation, along with a significant potential evaporation demand. Despite the overall similarities in the driving processes for potential retention and cooling, no large-scale studies have systematically addressed the assessment of these environmental benefits in combination or their relative performance across different climatic regions.
