the miracle molecule of life …

Sensational, good news about CO2, again:

Elevated CO2 Increases Soil Phosphorus Availability in a Phosphorus-Limited Australian Woodland (18 August 2016)
A new FACE study reveals another significant benefit of increasing atmospheric CO2 concentrations for plants growing in phosphorus-limiting soils…

What isn’t it good for? Greenies! There’s always a catastrophe around every corner:

The fossil fuel industry is killing the world’s coral reefs!

 I guess I will just have to stick my head in the oven. Oh no, I can’t, it’s gas, and releases CO2 when burnt.  It sucks to be a Green, (casually ‘unfriending’ Ecowatch). On second thoughts, it’s comic relief. Oh, and mostly bull:

Acacia aneura_1

Now Phosphorus is a very important molecule too for flowering plants, but many Australian species, such as Grevilleas, have adapted to a very low phosphorus soil type. Got to love that extra CO2.
