The Uncertainty of CO2 Fertilization.

This article from nature discusses the interesting concept of CO2 fertilization, basically meaning the process by which plants take in carbon dioxide from the air through photosynthesis.

This hampers the idea that climate change can be mitigated through the planting of more trees and other conservation efforts.
