Okay everybody! You can discontinue the 8th grade biology lesson, or was it 6th? (Think it was 6th grade, actually).
I understand this is a cycle. Plants convert co2 to oxygen in a process called photosynthesis. Gotcha. Humans need the oxygen to breathe and
survive. Gotcha. Most of our oxygen comes from the seas, (I think it's around 80%). Humans convert 02 to co2, which the plants then (yada yada
yada.) So, now we are on the same page? Yes? Right? We all understand the process.
The thread, to my understanding, was not focused on a sixth grade biology lesson. It is political, or am I mistaken?
Here is something to think about: How did the plants survive before industrialization? ??? With no pollutants being pumped into the environment,
they managed to become lush in jungles, forrests, and oceans. With no industry whatsoever?
In fact, how did vegetation manage to survive before man? ???
The planet has managed itself quite well, without human intervention.
Co2 is toxic to humans in high levels. The plants are fine. They have plenty of co2. It's other things that are dangerous to them. Such as man.
Polluted streams and rivers. Acid rain.
All this pollution has been about money. All of it, with no care or consideration given to our planet, or posterity.
The United State is an industrialized country. There are others who are not, but who wish to pull themselves up and out of the 3rd world and poverty,
and they have a right to do it. Perhaps they will be kinder to our Earth than we have been.
And with that, Peace out. This thread is not what I thought it was going to be.
