Plants absorbing more CO2 than we thought
from Nature World News
Global warming may be slightly less devastating to the Earth than feared, as new research has found that plants can absorb more carbon dioxide than we previously thought. Climate models have grossly underestimated the power of our plants because they failed to take into account that when carbon dioxide (CO2) builds up in the atmosphere, plants actually thrive, become larger, and are able to soak up more CO2. As part of photosynthesis — a natural cycle that helps plants convert sunlight into energy — plants capture CO2 to help them grow and then release oxygen as a waste product.
