Carbon dioxide is necessary for life on this planet so to think its harming the planet is a nonsense. Its the removal of the rain forests around the planet that is causing our environmental problems, but do we here anyone speaking about this issue. no its all about those nasty humans who breath out carbon dioxide and cows in the paddock that causing all our problems and the sheeples believe them not thinking that somehow these people dont think they are part of the problem by their misinformation and strangely they feel they are exempt from this labelling.
