Plants are absorbing 17% more CO2 today than 30 yrs ago, shows new research from CSIRO, but that's not the bizarre thing

"Equally extraordinarily, our study also shows that the vegetation is hardly using any extra water to do it, suggesting that global change is causing the world’s plants to grow in a more water-efficient way."
