Atmospheric increases of both Carbon Dioxide and Nitrogen, promises huge increases in biomass and photosynthesis.
Environmentalists of the left want this to stop! Doesn’t fit the agenda. Cut the CO2, starve the crops, stop GM research! Even peanuts are in danger of the Green Blob!
Agriculture (Species: Peanut) — Summary (2 September 2015)
Nearly all agricultural crops respond to increases in the air’s CO2 content by displaying enhanced rates of photosynthesis and biomass production. In this brief summary, we review the results of some of the studies that have evaluated these effects and the effects of climate-model predicted changes in air temperature, precipitation, and ozone pollution on peanut plants…
Peanuts want more CO2, now! Higher yields, with less irrigation, that’s got to be good news:
[…] which in turn suggests that for more realistic values of CO2-induced global warming, i.e., temperature increases on the order of 0.4°C for a doubling of the air’s CO2 content (Idso, 1998), there would likely be a significant increase in real-world peanut production.
More fertilizer, less moisture needed.
Nitrogen Deposition Enhances Impact of Atmospheric CO2 Increase (1 September 2015)
The two global environmental changes that are the result of the Industrial Revolution have been combining their individual influences to enhance the growth and development of the planet’s plant life for quite some time now…

Australia’s biggest crop, with a near record growth in yield every year:

Our latest result of plant growth responses to atmospheric CO2 enrichment obtained from experiments described in the peer-reviewed scientific literature is for Wheat
More CO2 please!
Even more crap that needs cutting: Australian Bureau of Meteorology predicted a warm winter in 2015- monster fail in South East Australia
