Simple Answer. No. You cannot ramp up photosynthesis to the level needed to take out 2ppm of CO2 per year. Nuff said.

You need to stop putting it into the air in the FIRST place. Then maybe plants can be used to reduce the current 400 ppm.

More distraction aimed at keeping people from focussing on REAL solutions.
