Question: How can carbon dioxide hurt us?
Response: Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a necessary ingredient for plants to perform photosynthesis, and a critical component of our atmosphere. However, you can have too much of a good thing! The excess CO2 we are adding to the atmosphere increases global temperatures, leading to climate changes that can harm plants, animals, and humans.
