Photorespiration

    Scientists are "fixing" photorespiration. This is not good from a deuterium depletion perspective is it?




    "Photorespiration normally takes a complicated route through three compartments in the plant cell. Scientists engineered alternate pathways to reroute the process, drastically shortening the trip and saving enough resources to boost plant growth by 40 percent. This is the first time that an engineered photorespiration fix has been tested in real-world agronomic conditions."

    We can alter it......but the question is do we know what the collateral effects will be?

    Speaking of collateral effects, how badly will 60 GHz RF used in the rollout of 5G, which is highly absorbed by oxygen in the atmosphere, affect deuterium content in rain - thus plants, animals and humans?
