Sorry I i trust far more than who are involved i energy generation, than those involved into profiting by cargoeing the stuff.

Our crop are starved from other stuff than carbon. if carbon was the problem only, we would put carbon in our fertilizer. But we don't what provocated an explosion of food production was not the CO2 increase during industrial revolution up to today, but NPK fertilizer (nitrogen, Potassium, phosphorus).
While it is true that plant growth would increase as a whole, our crop would still be far more dependent on fertilizer than CO2. And then there is the impact of the change of climate on the zone where the top soil is best for crop growth. If the winter and summer become more extreme, wheat growth might hit a water problem. What good is CO2 if you have not enough water to fix it ?
