Abstract

Comments on "The aerial fertilization C0 for a given rate of C0 emission? as posed by 2 2 Idso, but rather, What is the total increase in terrestrial effect of C0 and its implications for carbon storage possible for a given set of C0 fertiliza- global carbon cycling and maximum tion and other assumptions? greenhouse warming" by S. B. Idso* Furthermore, Idso has misinterpreted and misap- plied the results of Marland (1988) and Kohlmaier et al. Dear Editor: (1989). Marland states that what is needed to balance current fossil fuel carbon emissions is a 10% increase In a recent article, Idso (1991) presents further evi- in global net primary productivity (NPP), equal to about dence that there is a real stimulation of photosynthesis 50-6 0 Gt C yr"1, in such a way that the additional in natural ecosystems by higher C0 concentrations. carbon is stored. Marland shows that this could occur Idso finds, in a single experiment with one woody tree if carbon uptake is increased by about 1 t C rrr2 yr 1 in species growing under noncompetitive conditions, closed temperate forests and by 2.8 C rrr2 yr 1 in that 2.8 times as much carbon is sequestered
