Miraculous new invention. All plantlife eats CO2 and releases O2.
I have never seen biomass dymanics represented in the climate models...
Most biological carbon processing is in equilibrium. Only if you cut down and sequester
biomass (e.g. build houses out of lumber) or plant areas with new growth do you affect the
equilibrium. But some models consider the fermentation of the tundra when the permafrost
melts - which will release enormous amounts of methane in relatively short time. It's not
biological, but the melting of methane calthrates on the ocean floor is already releasing
a lot more methane than most models considered.
