Global warming and forests

Last glacial maximum vegetation. Map generated by the National Geophysical Data Centre

From the desk of emeritus professor Philip Stott: the last glacial maximum vegetation map shows the world only became significantly forested with the global warming that followed the end of the glaciation. So a couple of questions arise:

  •  If the spread of forests is a characteristic of global warming, why then are forests and trees seen as a counter to ‘global warming’?”
  • Which follows which, the trees the climate or the climate the trees?
