CO2 research

Asked August 6, 2019, 11:30 AM EDT

I’m a MSU alumnus and part time gardener. I was wondering if the university is doing any research into trees, cover crops, or other plants regarding their relative ability to absorb CO2 and or other atmospheric pollutants with an eye toward developing practical plant life with enhanced ability to scrub the air to address climate change. If we can breed better apples why not try to address this issue through agriculture too?
