- n. the chemical formula for carbon dioxide, a heavy odorless gas (CO2) formed during respiration and by the combustion or decomposition of organic substances; it is absorbed from the air by plants in photosynthesis. The formula itself, pronounced out, is often used instead of the full name, especially with reference to fire extinguishers using this gas for fire suppression.

“So figure a grant becomes available, sho how increases in co2 or climate change effects xyz.”
“We could, if the we decide that reducing the amount of co2 in the atmosphere is a worthy goal, use some of the proceeds of a carbon tax to pay for schemes that get co2 from the atmosphere and sequester it.”
“Arnold does not need to go far to prove his libertarian credentials, he need just examine co2 levels of the last half million years and see for himself what level of co2 is supportable.”
“Biodiesel is lower in co2 and carbon particulate emissions but higher in nox emissions – an issue being addressed in the biodiesel production industry.”
“He did a story about this commercial done by some energy lobby group about how “zealots” are trying to falsely label co2 as a pollutant and if we let them get away with that we will all be back in the stone age.”
“You know what they say … Although co2 is good for man – man can not live off of co2 alone … wait a minute … can man live off of co2 … I though co2 was a waste product … something we give off because it is poisonous to us … poisons aren’t good for man are they … hmmmmmmâ€ ¦ maybe they should stop that?”
“I should also ask: for those who called the co2 lag explanation, did you read the article the RealClimate entry linked to?”
“And that's not the same as emissions of co2 which is not harmful to individual health”
“i read somewhere (sorry … no citation / link / anything …) of these plastic plates or fins or something that attract co2, which is periodically "washed" off with water and magically "sequestered" somewhere. was i smokin 'something or did i really read that? what do you think?”
Looking for tweets for co2.
