So what if the quality isn't as great, last time I checked starving masses in Africa aren't exactly turning away sacks of grain because they aren't organic or freshly produced or something. Now that I think about it, those starving masses in Africa would be glad to plant GM crops which would literally save them from starvation and reliance on foreign aid. Guess who fights tooth and nail to stop them, yep you guessed it, the Greenies and leftists. Coming back to the carbon thing, if it's quality that we're yearning for, why can't we try and resolve the quality issues, instead of abandoning it and running from the room wailing hysterically.Breitbart - Increasing exposure to carbon dioxide appears to boost crop yields, Hans-Joachim Weigel of the Johann Heinrich von Thuenen Institute for rural areas, forestry and fisheries in the central city of Brunswick told AFP. "Output increased by about 10 percent for barley, beets and wheat" when the plants were subjected to higher levels of carbon dioxide, Weigel said. The Thuenen Institute, which has been monitoring the phenomenon in fields since 1999, trains CO2 jets on the plants so the gas reaches 550 parts per million in the air around them -- the level expected in the atmosphere by 2050.
Weigel said the studies have indicated that while greater CO2 exposure appears to spur growth, it can also undermine the quality of the produce. He said the next step in the study would be to evaluate the effect of higher temperatures on plant growth -- which scientists cite as another consequence of higher CO2 emissions in the atmosphere.

As for the terrible effects of higher temperatures, let the the research continue, but even we know that the biggest exports out of Greenland aren't wheat, barley, oats, rice and bananas, so I don't see a couple of degrees upwards being a bad thing. If this research turns out to be 1000% accurate and it turns out that global warming will actually be good for the human race, I'm sure leftists and greenies will literally go to war with us to force their carbon-hating hysteria down our throats. Like many of us have long suspected, they hate the human-race and global warming is, as Ann Coulter says, the left's latest plan to exterminate the human race.
