What is Carbon Dioxide (CO2) and what is it not?

Primary pollutant examples include carbon monoxide from car exhausts and sulfur dioxide from the combustion of coal. If primary pollutants in the atmosphere undergo chemical reactions. The resulting compounds are called secondary pollutants. Photochemical smog is an example of this. From history we also know smog. Modern smog consisting of a mixture of different air pollutants: ozone, nitrogen dioxide, particulate matter and volatile organic compounds. Smog formed when nitrogen from exhaust absorb sunlight and are decomposed to nitrogen monoxide and reactive oxygen atoms. These oxygen atoms react with other components of automobiles and industrial, such as. hydrocarbons with atmospheric oxygen in a normal series of reactions that produce mucosal irritating substances, for example. peroxyacetyl nitrate (PAN). Carbon (C) is also a pollutant when airborne (soth). Carbon (C) can also be diamonds – metastable allotrope of carbon. So now you know everything Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is not!

Now, let’s talk about Carbon Dioxide (CO2), and see what Carbon Dioxide (CO2) actually is. When you breath out, the air you exhale has a level of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) of up to 40,000 ppm. Ask yourself, is that pollution? The following chart shows how much plants like your breath, more is better!

Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is, in short, – plant food. You can’t smell, see, or wear it. Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a colorless, odorless, non-flammable and slightly acidic liquefied gas. Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is heavier than air and soluble in water. Current level in the atmosphere is 400 parts per million (ppm). It is in fact a greenhouse gas, but the greenhouse effect can’t be measured compared to other natural variations in the atmosphere despite many years of research. Anyone telling you otherwise is not citing science but are either ignorant of the science, or just an political activists. Pre-industrial level of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) was all the way down to 280 ppmv. and in fact even lower at times. Trees and other plants evolved and got smaller over time because of the lack of Carbon Dioxide (CO2), they also grew slower. Animals also evolved and got smaller as a result of less food.

The plant – Grass – evolved, probably as a result of low level of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) . Grass absorb Carbon Dioxide (CO2) much better than trees and other plants, it also uses the Carbon Dioxide (CO2) more efficient. Animals grew smaller as their food supply became scarce and also because the plants they had to feed on gave less nutrition. The animals and plants that didn’t adapt got extinct. All because of less Carbon Dioxide (CO2). At high altitude trees don’t grow (tree line), but grass and heather does. That is not because of the lower level of Oxygen (H2O), or lower temperature level, as we probably all learn in school, it’s because of the low level of Carbon Dioxide (CO2).

As the chart show, the temperature and Carbon Dioxide (CO2) doesn’t lock together at all, historically, as you would expect if Carbon Dioxide (CO2) was the primary driver of temperature. Read more about the corrolation between Carbon Dioxide (CO2) and temperature.

Let’s take a look at the Carbon Dioxide (CO2) in reason history.


As we can see, the Carbon Dioxide (CO2) level has risen since the end of the little ice age and have just tipped 400 ppm.

zFacts-CO2-Temp  PS! The graph doesn’t give the complete picture because it has to be adjusted as it shows 2 different charts in one.

As you can see when you put temperature and Carbon Dioxide (CO2) into the same chart, it seem to be correlated. But, as we know, correlation isn’t causation, – as the next slide show.

Moncktonjuly2014  No warming for 17 years and 10 months and running, but the Carbon Dioxide (CO2) level has risen by approximately 30 ppm. over the same time period. References that can be trusted; Climate Depot – The Heartland Institutes – Lord Monckton – What’s Up With That – Cfact What the IPCC computer models shows vs. real world measured temperature:


More information and references press here. Now let us see what the IPCC say.


As we can see, the lower the temperature goes and the further apart the temperature got from what all the computer models said it would be, more certain are the IPCC that they are right – and of course they have to, that is called compensation – Another word is desperation! Carbon Dioxide (CO2) and weather: Does the Carbon Dioxide (CO2) lead to more tornadoes? Not according to the statistics.

Does the Carbon Dioxide (CO2) lead to more trophical cyclone activity?

Roy Spense tropical cyclone chart No!

What about drought?

Roy Spencer us drought chart No!

As i have documented, Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is not a pollutant.

As i have documented, Carbon Dioxide (CO2) does not drive the temperature.

As i have documented, Carbon Dioxide (CO2) does not lead to more tropical cyclone activity.

As i have documented, Carbon Dioxide (CO2) does not lead to more tornadoes.

As i have documented, Carbon Dioxide (CO2) does not lead to worse drought conditions.

As i have documented, Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is plant food.

Those saying it’s pollution is not being honest. Historically, we know that the level of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) has been many times higher. We also know that plants, trees and animals was bigger, examples Tyrannosaurus Rex, Spinosaurus, Argentinosaurus etc.

Low level of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) did not cause the dinosaurs to become extinct, an asteroid did, 65 million years ago. But when we look at what that world left behind, – the vast amount of coal, oil and gas, the earth must have been a completely different world back then. Amazonas jungle times 20 in density, intensity – we can only imagine.

Low level of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) might have contributed to the extinction of many animals in the past, like Mammoth Elephant in the northern hemisphere. They just all vanished at the same time on the Eurasian continent. The theory is that the lack of Carbon Dioxide (CO2), made the few plants that actually managed to live there die, and as a consequence the big animals did no longer have any food. Big animals further south had more plants to graze on, and even if some plants didn’t manage to survive on lower levels of Carbon Dioxide (CO2), it was enough for their survival. Of course we do not know that, but that is the best theory i have heard so far. Today, the only habitat that support really big animals is the oceans where we find the biggest of them all, the Blue Whale. That also fit the theory of lack of sufficient levels of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) elsewhere. Greenhouses are regularly being injected with Carbon Dioxide (CO2) by the farmers. Levels between 1000 ppmv. and up to 2000 ppmv. is not uncommon. The plants grows faster, gets bigger and uses the water more efficient. They are also better equipped to withstand diseases. Knowing all this, it is amazing that we don’t put more Carbon Dioxide (CO2) up in the atmosphere. 1600 ppmv. would be perfect!

IPCC has documented their total lack of understanding. The fact that they are still paddling the same hoax, is only a testimony to the vast amount of taxpayers money they are spending and doesn’t say anything about the science..

The effect of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is almost as high it can be, simply because the effect of adding more Carbon Dioxide (CO2) decreases as the level of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) increases, and the level is close to saturated in the atmosphere already, a further increase of the amount of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) will only give a theoretical (approx. 1 degree Celsius that are most likely to be dwarfed by other variables), meaning non measurable temperature increase. When did the IPCC tell that publicly? Or when did you last see that reported in the media? Follow the links on this page for more information!
