How does climate change affect photosynthesis?

1 Answer

The process of photosynthesis removes Carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and turns the Carbon into Carbohydrates such as sugar starches, and cellulose.


The process of photosynthesis uses Carbon Dioxide as a reactant removing the Carbon Dioxide from the atmosphere. The reduction of Carbon Dioxide from the atmosphere helps to reduce global warming.

During the Mesozoic Era there were high levels of Carbon Dioxide that resulted in high levels of photosynthesis. The era of high carbon dioxide is also known as the Carboniferous Era. The High levels of Carbon Dioxide created large amounts of plant growth that created the coal deposits.

High levels of photosynthesis take large amounts of Carbon Dioxide out of the atmosphere to create sugars and starches used for plant growth.
