I know maths is hard, but bear with me.
The concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere is about 380 parts per million.
Compared to the 57,600 sq ft on a football field, the CO2 concentration
represents about 22 square feet.
That 22 square feet is larger than the chalk outline of a refree who was
stabbed six times by irate fans after he made three consecutive bad calls
against the home team, and the increase in CO2 is roughly equivalent to the
spreading blood stain on the Astroturf as the sonofabitch bled out.
Read it again. I didn't say that. HeyBub said that the concentration of CO2 in
the atmosphere is small. I just said small concentrations of things can have a
But of course CO2 is a toxin. Concentrations exceeding 4% are immediately
dangerous to life and health, according to OSHA.
And they can have no effect. You just tossed that out without any
kind of linkage to levels of CO2.
Concentrations in air, You aren't even remotely suggesting that CO2
in ambient air is even approaching that level are you?
Two very specious and completely irrelevant arguments in two posts.
Not a record, but still impressive (lack of) acheivement.
I want to find a voracious, small-minded predator
and name it after the IRS.
Yes, CO2 can suffocate. We had to put big labels on the door to our
walk-in coldroom after someone had died elsewhere. This scientist had
taken a box of dry ice into a cold room to pack up the frozen samples he
had to move to his new lab. He had not taken into account that CO2
displaces air (and oxygen) and causes one to feel very sleepy. It
probably wasn't a painful death (for him), but it is still a warning for
everyone. In a similar vein, CO2 asphyxiation is an approved method for
euthanizing small animals.
No, that's not CO2's MO at all. CO2 will *not* cause you to get
sleepy (it is quite unlike CO). It'll do the exact opposite. You
will become hyper, gasping for air, and BREAK THINGS to get less of
it. Try holding your breath to see what CO2 poisoning is like. CO2
euthanization would be quite cruel, so no I don't believe you.
CO2 inhalation is the most common method of euthanasia used for mice and
rats. A few important aspects of this procedure are:
This a quote from here:
Case Western is a reputable school. We do similarly at our medical
school (Weill Cornell Medical College).
Oh My GAWD! You are MURDERING AMINALS in your labs. Don't you know
that a mouse is a rat is a boy? Maybe Keith can send some PETA
members over to "free" your animals before you use them to cure
disease or something destructive to the planet like that!

OH MY GAWD! Are we all going to DIE? Let's see, 4% of 100,000 is
4,000. The DEADLY, EVIL CO2 is at 38 parts per hundred thousand and
with MANS ASSAULT on GAIA, the DEADLY, EVIL CO2 is advancing 1 part
per hundred thousand EVERY 10 YEARS! So, to add 3962 parts per
hundred thousand to our atmosphere and make it "deadly", according to
OSHA, it will take 39620 YEARS!
OH MY GAWD! QUICK somebody call ALGORE! Stop all fires and internal
combustion engines! We must join Obammao and live in mud huts and eat
grass and twigs or we'll all be EXTINCT!
