When carbon dioxide levels rise in the air, this causes a decrease in the nutritional value of many crops. Researcher Max Taub tested this by increasing levels of CO2 gas in the atmosphere where basic crops like barley, rice, wheat, soybeans and potatoes were planted, and found that their protein decreased between 10 and 14%. Soybeans were the least affected, with a decrease in protein of less than 2%.
