ďI would also point out that CO2, carbon dioxide, is not a pollutant in any normal definition of the term. Ö I am creating it as I talk to you. Itís in your Coca-Cola, youíre Dr. Pepper, your Perrier water. It is necessary for human life. It is odorless, colorless, tasteless, does not cause cancer, does not cause asthma.Ē

That's not it - it's that you have less and less brain cells to get stoned thus the pot seems more potent.

The cartels thank you.

CO2 is in the body and is part of naturally-occurring body processes. Has this been factored in in terms of the population explosion globally?

The mere existence of lots of stuff isn't necessarily bad.

Nor is it necessarily good. Drinking a cup of water won't hurt you. Drinking a couple gallons in short order very likely will.

Yes, love, so what's the concern with CO2? I don't think the population explosion produces anything too small to matter, but I'm admittedly not familiar with science on CO2. Plants process the stuff, you know. Deforestation may be also in play with that.

I get my weed from a hippy bass player I know that grows it himself. How does that help the cartels?

How'd I know you say this? You see, not one pot smoker I have ever talked to says he gets his weed from the cartels. It's always good Americans with families. Quite amazing considering how many endless tons of the stuff keep coming over here.

Imagine all the violence that could be avoided if we legalized weed. It's more harmless than alcohol.

As a species, we've never experienced this level of CO2, which is causing considerable changes in the climate system. The impacts of those changes are likely to be unpleasant (at best) and dangerous to us and the biosphere.

I recommend doing some research, then.

Yes, deforestation does play a role. Our burning of fossil fuels is of much greater significance.

No worries, Jesus will save us when he returns, for the second time no less, riding on a dinosaur to save us. Yay science!

What is your carbon footprint?

Mine is 9.5 Tons of CO2 a year. Average in USA per person is 27. Average person in the world is 5.5.

Are you doing your part?
