Carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide are mixtures of a solid and a gas fused in extreme heat. They are poisonous when they are mixed in high concentrations in a confined area.
When the hot CO2 mixture of a solid and gas rise to cool, Earth’s gravity pulls the solid carbon atom away from the Oxygen gas atoms, leaving two benign elements. The gravitationally attracted solid carbon falls to Earth and benefits the plant life, while the oxygen gas rises into the atmosphere and benefits animal life. Carbon dioxide is not something to fear; after all, plants thrive on it to survive, and it’s in every carbonated beverage. The amount of atmospheric Argon is 0.93%, Carbon Dioxide in our atmosphere today is 0.038 per cent, Neon 0.0018%, Helium 0.0005 and N2O is 0.00003.
Air pollution is being treated as a red herring. These percentages are hardly enough to worry about. Air cleanses itself in nature from gravity, rain and wind.
Water pollution is the thing to worry about. Once water is polluted, it must be mechanically or chemically treated at great costs. This is placing mankind in a precarious position of dependency on the same group who polluted the water in the first place.
Water cannot be created or destroyed but it can be permanently polluted air cannot be permanently polluted.
