Professor Ranga Myneni has co-authored two papers in Nature Climate Change.

One describes how the greening of the Earth, largely due to CO2 fertilization, has also increased evapo-transpiration and thus cooled the planet. https://www.nature.com/nclimate/journal/v7/n6/full/nclimate3299.html

The secondĀ  describes the weakening relationship between temperature and spring carbon uptake in the recent years. These two recent papers from this group of authors are of a larger body of work on the biophysical and biochemical effects of a greening Earth. https://www.nature.com/nclimate/journal/v7/n5/full/nclimate3277.html
