more carbon please …

[…] Wang et al. report that “both CO2 enrichment and warming increased the availability of most soil micronutrients,” while noting more specifically that “the availability of Fe, Mn, Cu and Zn under CO2 enrichment increased by 47.7, 22.5, 59.8 and 114.1%, respectively,” and that “warming increased the availability of Fe, Cu and Zn by 60.4, 23.8 and 15.3%, respectively,” all of which findings bode well for humanity.

There’s nothing CO2 and some warming isn’t good for, in this latest research on growing wheat. Enriching fields with CO2 can help in so many ways.

Less water usage, reduced pathogens, increased yield, lower fertilizer needs. What’s not to like.
