Half-baked science

Here’s an interesting finding about deciduous forests in the eastern US: they appear to be growing faster.  However, the explanation seems a bit facile.  How about backing up the conclusion with some plausible links, like maybe a regression model.  Otherwise, the claim that Global Warming (and by extension George Bush) Made the Trees Grow Faster is only a Just-So Story.
