Increased CO2 aids World's Food Production.

Global rice production reaches 476 million tons in 2011 Link

Global rice production is expected to touch 476 million tons in 2011, on the back of improved weather conditions, as the influence of La Niña is expected to neutralize by June, United Nation’s body FAO said.
The recovery of Latin America’s production, particularly in the Mercosur block gave the world harvest a significant boost.
The world rice production reached a new record in 2010, at 464 million tons (696 million tons paddy), up 1.8% from the previous season, FAO said.
“Although very preliminary, world paddy production in 2011, is forecast to expand by 2.5% to 713 million tons (about 476 million tons, milled basis), reflecting expectations of improved weather conditions, as the influence of La Niña is expected to fade away by June,” it said.
 Can it be that increased CO2, instead of poisoning the world,  is helping to increase the growth in the biomass?
