Increased CO2 Levels Yielding Bigger Plants

As the amount of carbon dioxide in the air increases, it results in bigger plants because they use it (and water) in photosynthesizing food for themselves. If we use the process of pyrolysis to carbonize plants to create biochar and then use the biochar as a soil amendment to increase crop yields, then we can do a better job of raising crops while battling CO2 levels because carbon such as this would be sequestered for thousands of years while ensuring richer topsoils for just as long.
