Tree Gas

Scientific American linked up this summary of new research into how trees work with carbon dioxide. According to the article, it would appear they don't grow any faster in a CO2-rich environment than they do in a more "normal" one. The study is not without problems though, since the affects of CO2 may take longer to manifest, or they may have been manifest in the root system, which the experiment did not examine.
