Nothing surprising about it. The science has always shown that increasing one 'nutrient' just makes another the 'limiting factor'. Known for decades. I guess they must have believed the hype going around from the denialists. Even scientists are human. They get sucked in by endless propaganda too. Up until they check their facts and surprise surprise..

This experiment says nothing about climate change mitigation doing any good, add it to the pile of evidence.
AGW driven politics is climate change mitigation hoax. Ban the IPCC.

Hmmm, that certainly doesn't look like a well controlled experiment and they only studied grassland species.
Does leaf photosynthesis adapt to CO2-enriched environments? An experiment on plants originating from three natural CO2 springs.
A slightly more detailed look at thi question:
