hahaha,

That's a picture of my relatives in Hong Kong, I don't have photos of myself .

that's why they are up there and I am definitely not cute.ha ha ha

I'm in my eighties, you don't half cheer me up on a chilly morn in Europe.

regards my good friend. Hon Kam.

The Unseen Benefits of Atmospheric CO2 Enrichment

(16 October 2012)

Reference
Prior, S.A., Runion, G.B., Torbert, H.A., Idso, S.B. and Kimball, B.A. 2012. Sour orange fine root distribution after
seventeen years of atmospheric CO2 enrichment. Agricultural and Forest Meteorology 162-163: 85-90.

  Out of sight, out of mind  may apply to many aspects of our daily life; but when it comes to the daily life of trees, what none of us sees is of paramount importance. And that is why a group of scientists associated with the USDA's Agricultural Research Service (two of them now retired) looked closely at the root growth responses of a group of sour orange trees to a 300-ppm (~75%) increase in the atmosphere's CO2 concentration over a period of seventeen years, as they grew from young seedlings to fully-mature heavily-fruit-bearing trees.

    Eight sour orange (Citrus aurantium L.) seedlings were planted directly into the ground (an Avondale loam) at Phoenix, Arizona (USA) in July of 1987, where they grew within four identically-vented, open-top, clear-plastic-wall chambers that were constructed around pairs of trees, as described by Idso and Kimball (1991). Through two of these chambers (from their bottoms to their tops), normal ambient air was continuously pumped both day and night, while through the other two chambers a continuous flow of air enriched with an extra 300 ppm of CO2 was similarly pumped. Throughout the 17 years of this experiment, the trees were fertilized and flood-irrigated according to standard commercial orchard practices, so as to maintain ample nutrients and soil moisture, as described by Idso and Kimball (2001). Then, at the end of the seventeen years, 105-cm-long soil cores were extracted from each chamber, using the methods described by Prior and Rogers (1992), at distances of 0.5, 1.0, 1.5 and 2.0 meters along lines emanating from each tree in the four cardinal directions. These cores were subsequently divided into 15-cm segments (0-15, 15-30, 30-45, 45-60, 60-75, 75-90, 90-105 cm), after which root dry weight and length densities were evaluated for each of these soil column intervals.

   In doing so, Prior et al. discovered that, overall, elevated CO2 increased root length density by 35.6% and root dry weight density by 39.1%. In the two uppermost soil layers (0-15 cm and 15-30 cm), however, where the sour orange trees had their greatest root presence, they report that the 300-ppm increase in the air's CO2 concentration increased fine root length density by 64.5% and 57.2%, respectively, while corresponding increases in root dry weight were 80.3% and 82.8%.

   In the words of the five researchers, "these large root responses, along with the large increases in fruit and wood production noted by Kimball et al. (2007), indicate that long-term citrus productivity can be enhanced as atmospheric CO2 continues to rise, particularly when trees are grown under conditions of water and nutrient supply typical of orchard conditions."

GUIDE TO A BETTER LIFE - Randy Paush



This is amazing, Randy Pausch 47 yrs old, A computer Sc. lecturer from Mellon Universityhe died of pancreatic cancer in 2008, but wrote a book ‘The last lecture” before then, one of the bestsellers in 2007. What a legacy to leave behind…
In a letter to his wife Jai and his children, Dylan, Logan , and Chloe, he wrote this beautiful "guide to a better life" for his wife and children to follow.
May you be blessed by his insight.





Excerpt:

POINTS ON HOW TO IMPROVE YOUR LIFE


Personality:

1. Don't compare your life to others'. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
2. Don't have negative thoughts of things you cannot control. Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment
3. Don't over do; keep your limits
4. Don't take yourself so seriously; no one else does
5. Don't waste your precious energy on gossip
6. Dream more while you are awake
7. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need..
8. Forget issues of the past. Don't remind your partner of his/her mistakes of the past. That will ruin your present happiness.
9. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. Don't hate others.
10. Make peace with your past so it won't spoil the present
11. No one is in charge of your happiness except you
12. Realize that life is a school and you are here to learn. Problems are simply part of the curriculum that appear and fade away like algebra class but the lessons you learn will last a lifetime.
13. Smile and laugh more
14. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.
Remember,

GOOD THINGS ARE FOR US TO SHARE.....!!!!!!  




How happy a man is,is not how much he has but how little he needs.

So tell me.........why should anyone believe sansukong American Red State propaganda and not believe China's own scientists?

Note: For All To View:

Just look at what he said above and later he is quoted to say below.

THIS IS WHAT SELF-PROCLAIMED 'PATRIOT' REVOLUTIONAR SAID IN A RECENT POST ABOUT CHINA FUMING:

"China fumes?  People doing the selling have to please the people doing the buying.  So, what is all this China fuming business?  China better buck up and stop the fuming and start pleasing the customers if China still wants to sell stuffs ...........   Customers are king. Americans consume, China are the salesmen And earns money from Americans.  How dare you to fume and criticize those who buy your stuffs?"

I will continue to dismantle the ridiculous structure of your lies and disinformatsiya drawn from  ...

How the hell you expect others to trust a compulsive LIAR like you? You have being avoiding answering a simple and direct question as to whether you had lied when you accused the Chinese athletes of STEALING their gold medals at the London Olympics! To be more direct, you have zero credibility, none whatsoever, not even a bit and completely bankrupt of trust!!!  Who dares and would ever trust you?
