Are plants effected at all by the greenhouse effect?

    Yes. First off, without the greenhouse effect we most likely would have very limited plant growth on Earth. The Earth without the greenhouse effect would be a chilly (average) -18 degrees Celsius, instead of the (average) 15 Celsius it is today. The increased greenhouse effect due to greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide and methane will most likely increase plant growth in certain areas – due to increased temperature and precipitation, while drought could decrease plant growth in other areas. Since plants use CO2, hopefully an increase in plant growth could counter balance some of the excess CO2 in the atmosphere.
