"We find that plants can shift their optimum temperature for photosynthesis, especially in the presence of elevated CO2 , which also increases plant productivity."

Yes, we are now living in a truly "greener world" :-)

I had heard plants were growing better in the last few decades but this is the first study I've come across. Not that I've been looking for them.

    ha ha ha someone finally woke up to the oxygen CO2 cycle and the reason for not clear cutting the forests into deserts. We need oxygen the plants need CO2. Really. Imagine that? So what excuse will the Gore-istas come up with next time? Check the mini ice age in the eastern USA lately. Where the hell is global warming when you really need it????? ha ha ha
