Look at the beauty that atmospheric CO2 creates

CO2 Coalition, William Happer et al.: The fraction of the beneficial molecule CO2 in the current atmosphere is tiny, about 0.04% by volume. This level is about 30% larger than pre-industrial levels in 1800. But today's levels are still much smaller than the levels, 0.20% or more, that prevaied over much of geological history. CO2 levels during the past tens of millions of years have been much closer to starvation levels, 0.015%, when many plants die, than to the much higher levels that most plants prefer.
