Carbon Dioxide: The Gas of Life

Paul Driessen

Paul Driessen, is senior policy analyst for the Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT) and Heartland Institute. Tiny amounts of this miracle molecule make life on Earth possible. Carbon dioxide performs as many miracles for our planet as antibiotics and immunizations have for mankind. That is an amazing feat for a colorless, odorless, tasteless gas that represents just 0.04 percent of our atmosphere: the equivalent of just 40 cents out of $1,000.
