I'll have to take your word for that. I'm no biologist. I do know that the C3 types will outlive us all and be one of the last forms of plant life left as this planet dies in x billion years.

Fortunately, that's not a time frame I need worry about. Brexit on the other hand... 86 days, 3 hours.

It seems Mrs. May has been double dealing. They've started a campaign of attrition, trying to scare MP's into voting for her vassilation deal while calling anyone who will listen in the EU and begging for concession on the other.

... and to think my country used to have grace, authority and dignity?

Maddeningly, for me at least, is that we as a race, devote millions to growing the empty calories in sugarcane. Sugarcane constantly leads the World in production by tonnage.
Forgive me if I'm 'preaching to the choir' but, as you may know, both sugarcane and corn (along with sorghum) use C4 photosynthesis while the other grasses upon which we feed (rice and wheat) use C3. The C4 pathway being much more efficient is one reason that corn leads the pack in average calories per acre at +/- 15M with potatoes and rice fighting it out for 2nd/3rd at 11 to 12 million depending on whose doing the counting with wheat and soybeans coming in at very distant 4/5 spots.

It seems that you won't be needing that land for a little while longer https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-46750092

Just what we need - more tobacco.
