crops booming, enriched with CO2 …

There’s nothing extra atmospheric CO2 can’t do. Like increasing the Soybean yield by 50%, with just an extra 300 parts per million. Got to love that: Plant Growth Database (22 January 2015)
Our latest result of plant growth responses to atmospheric CO2 enrichment obtained from experiments described in the peer-reviewed scientific literature is for Soybean (Bunce, 2014)…

What do the Greenies say? At least Bentgrass used in lawns only increases by up to 20%. Those golf courses and sportsgrounds will have to be mowed more often, but just 20%:

Plant Growth Database (15 January 2015)
Our latest result of plant growth responses to atmospheric CO2 enrichment obtained from experiments described in the peer-reviewed scientific literature is for Creeping Bentgrass (Burgess and Huang, 2014)…

Some species even double in biomass with 300 more parts per million. Pines can double and even treble in biomass with 300ppm more CO2. So to some Acacias.

I wont be happy until we really do get some real warming, Roman style:

We are living in a pussy of a warm period compared to Roman and Medieval times
