Can we modify plants so they will absorb more carbon?

    There was just a research breakthrough in which Japanese scientists soaked germinating seeds in a protein to increase the number of pores on leaves.  These pores, or stomas, take in CO2 and release oxygen.  The more pores, the easier it is for the plants to take in CO2 and the more starch produced during photosynthesis.  The only problem is that the protein, stomagen, is costly to produce.
