Global atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations (CO2) today are higher than at any point in at least the past 800,000 years! Is that a bad thing? Yes! There is a lot of buzz about CO2 on the internet and its harmful impact on the environment. People know it as a greenhouse gas (a gas that absorbs and radiates heat) which is the primary contributor to rising global temperatures. Carbon dioxide is a colorless and odorless chemical gas composed of two oxygen (O) atoms and one carbon (C) atom. Emitted by cement production, deforestation as well as the burning of fossil fuels like coal, oil and natural gas, rising levels of CO2 are not only hazardous for the environment, but they can also pose many health dangers for us.
