this is an interesting angle to look at all the co2 we release in to the world, is that this will be far better for the surviving plants(that we dont clear) . Plants of corse need it to live, they use it in a reaction fuled by compunds from light dependant photsynthesis, and connvert it to glucose. this method was developed at a point in earths history when carbondioxide was more abundant than oxygen, as that changed they adapted to use oxygen in this reaction when useable co2 is not acessable(to many plants not enough co2) its far less efficiant and produces less glucose than when co2 is used. so by this logic if we out more co2 in the atmosphere the plants will have more to use, they will use more of it, and it shouldnt really be a problem, at least in theory, i guess you have to factor in the rate of deforestation, combined with the rate of plants people keep. just food for thought here
