That is such bullshit. The levels of CO2 have never been a constant. Ever! They have fluctuated over the millenniums just as they will in the future. I think we have too little CO2 right now and we need more. Our bodies evolved over the millenniums with higher levels of CO2.The problem is we are putting too much CO2 into the air. The increased CO2, as part of the air we breathe, is not the danger. The danger is that CO2 a is a greenhouse gas meaning that it doesn't allow the heat from the sun to escape thus the temperature of the planet is increasing. This effect is exacerbated by the deforestation going on.
Prior to the Industrial Revolution the CO2 was at equilibrium. The amount produced was the same as the amount consumed. Now we produce far more CO2 and we have removed a significant amount of the plant life the removed CO2 through photosynthesis.
This is just basic facts of the situation. If you can't understand that you either don't want to understand or you have the IQ of a mentally defective turnip.
