Maybe i'm wrong, but weren't plants and tree's also a few scales larger in dino days as in present day ?

Is there a connection?

From my understanding yes they were. The carbonic acid that formed in the atmosphere from C02 and watervapor was very good for plantlife.

Studies have shown their is a marked increase in size and yield from plants fertilized with carbonic acid gas.

Yeah. Plants love acid rain.

Yes, plants sure love that carbonic acid, Phage. Its been known since the 20's.

Dr. Riedel therefore believes that carbonic acid works for supplying agriculture will before long be quite as common a feature as electricity and gas works, the large industrial centers at the same time becoming centers of increasing agricultural production.

I wonder what happened. I mean, there was a 300% increase in potato productivity. That's awesome. Maybe something about the experiments was wonky. But I understand that low soil pH can be problematic for plants.


I don't think plants were much larger then than they are now, in general.

While the earth is constantly gaining mass although very slowly over time it will indeed over a long range of time therefore have a slight increase in gravity...
As for the size of plants and dinosaurs a major contributing factor to their greater size as well as longevity was very likely due to a much more abundant ozone layer then we have today...

You make a good point there. There are hundreds of plant species that thrive in an acidic environment. Conifers were the dominant plant in the Jurassic period. They thrived in an acidic environment.

I didn't know that.


They thrived in an acidic environment.

As they thrive, to this very day. Unless we cut them down, of course.
