CO2 , Poison Ivy and Triffids

The Warmist vision of the future
Talk about researching the bleeding obvious.
Increasing CO2 is a major boon to agriculture with food plants growing faster and producing more. However the doom-and-gloom climate intelligentsia have done their research on nasty  poison ivy rather than food crops and surprise,surprise it grows faster with increasing CO2 . Who da thunkit! Keep these fellows in mind for the next Nobel prize joining other luminaries such as Yasser Arafat ,Al Gore and Obama. This is reported as  the "Attack of the 500 pound poison ivy" ,an article in in the green rag Oneearth . I am told the poisonous Deadly Nightshade plant also grows better with more CO2 and  it should be worth a research grant or two to check that out.
“Think of heat islands or cities as climate change in miniature,” Ziska says. “There are higher C02 concentrations, higher temperatures. There’s a fragmentation of ecosystems. All of those factors allow poison ivy to enter an environment that it may not have been in before.”
Apparently UHI (which we are told by climatologists is negligible) is going to make monster ivy plants grow. I wish they would get their stories straight.
