The increasing size and number of plants are going to suck up and hold all the atmospheric/terrestrial water till the rivers run dry - then the ocean levels will drop so low that the plants will capitalize on the enlarging beaches till New Hampshire cranberries connect with, and take over, the French Rivieria.

He would have no clue what you are talking about anyway.

One of theories is increased CO2 will spur plant growth and it's also one thing that needs to understood.

FYI Freeman Dyson is no Dummy.

FYI Freeman Dyson is no Dummy.
"There is no doubt that parts of the world are getting warmer, but the warming is not global. I am not saying that the warming does not cause problems. Obviously it does. Obviously we should be trying to understand it better."

"One of the main causes of warming is the increase of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere resulting from our burning of fossil fuels such as oil and coal and natural gas."

- Freeman Dyson

A little out of context, as his point was that we have other issues which affect us that we can be working on. But, he does acknowledge that climate change is occurring. Very interesting fellow.

Yes I would agree the title of the video is out of context.

There's a pretty good article from the NYT here:

Quote:
http://www.nytimes.com/2009/03/29/ma...29Dyson-t.html


....“His mind is still so open and flexible,” Sacks says. Which makes Dyson something far more formidable than just the latest peevish right-wing climate-change denier. Dyson is a scientist whose intelligence is revered by other scientists — William Press, former deputy director of the Los Alamos National Laboratory and now a professor of computer science at the University of Texas, calls him “infinitely smart.” Dyson — a mathematics prodigy who came to this country at 23 and right away contributed seminal work to physics by unifying quantum and electrodynamic theory — not only did path-breaking science of his own; he also witnessed the development of modern physics, thinking alongside most of the luminous figures of the age, including Einstein, Richard Feynman, Niels Bohr, Enrico Fermi, Hans Bethe, Edward Teller, J. Robert Oppenheimer and Edward Witten, the “high priest of string theory” whose office at the institute is just across the hall from Dyson’s. Yet instead of hewing to that fundamental field, Dyson chose to pursue broader and more unusual pursuits than most physicists — and has lived a more original life.

Among Dyson’s gifts is interpretive clarity, a penetrating ability to grasp the method and significance of what many kinds of scientists do. His thoughts about how science works appear in a series of lucid, elegant books for nonspecialists that have made him a trusted arbiter of ideas ranging far beyond physics....
