It appears that the picture being painted for Earth’s future biosphere is one that is bright and optimistic, as more and more improvements are made to models that are predicting that future.

Rather, it will likely be a major benefit, enhancing plant growth and soil organic carbon storage, which will provide a significant negative feedback to global warming as the Greening of the Earth continues.
