Bridget Burgess asked the Naked Scientists: Hi Chris, I am not a scientistis' bootlace, but I would like to ask a question that I have wondered about for years. Plants turn photons and basic elements into food; firstly for their own growth and then they either die and decay or become somethings food. Is this prcoess slowly enlarging the earth? I faintly remember from my science days at school energy = matter and if plants synthize light with matter into growth then it may increase the size of the original matter? Maybe a dumb question? RegardsBridget Burgess What do you think?
