The article does not make the significance of this finding clear -- unless they are really reckless enough to suggest unleashing bio-engineered plants in the wild to defeat global-warming.

But that really would be incredibly reckless, since we simply cannot guarantee that the new strains are safe for the environment. Once it is out in the wild, it WILL have unforeseen impacts, especially after it mutates.

"Rice and other commodity crops such as wheat and soybeans do not have any CO2 concentrating mechanism."

Doesn't the intereference look like any engineered plant?
