The Problem

There are 50 trace gases contributing to the greenhouse effect, but CO2 is the most important factor. In the year 1805, CO2 was only 278 ppm and it has risen to 378 ppm by 2004, or in about 100 years it increased 100 ppm. This level is much higher than over the past 150,000 years. The increasing emissions of trace gases and particularly from CO2 is caused by the earth humans mostly though energy from fossil origins burned in explosion motors from automobiles, ships, motorcycles, planes and heating units. The whole is caused by overpopulation with always more industrial gases, heating units, explosion motors, etc. The planet has already experienced a 0.8 to 1.00 degrees Celcius increase in temperature and a sea level rise of 16 cm over this same period.[1] It is predicted that the ocean level will rise another 160 cm by 2100.[2] Not only should CO2 be avoided to prevent an increase in temperature, but also because an atmospheric collapse or oxygen collapse can originate through a superfluity of CO2 in the atmosphere, which also gets into the oceans and other bodies of water as well as soil. This would mean the end of life on Earth.[3] In 2010 CO2 levels were at 460 ppm, this is contrary to the inexact calculations of terrestrial scientists, and it also does not include the CO2 which is being stored in the soils and the oceans and other bodies of water. The CO2 that is being stored in bodies of water, including the ocean, is also causing an acidification of the water, changing the pH of the water, therefore effecting the ecosystems in the bodies of water. These levels of CO2 can cause migraines, nausea, and dizziness, and once a certain percentage of CO2 is reached in the atmosphere, the gas will be poisonous for humans which leads to headaches and chronic fatigue. At 8%, or 80,000 ppm of CO2, it will be absolutely deadly. This is a rather large amount, however factors can occur where sudden releases of CO2 rapidly allow CO2 to increase when we reach certain thresholds. This can happen through the soil or oceans or bodies of water which suddenly release CO2, which will be deadly to breathe. Around 1860 CO2 concentrations were only 0.028%, or 280 ppm, and before the industrial revolution, the concentrations were only 187 ppm, which means since the industrial revolution, CO2 has increased 273 ppm. Other contributing factors to this disaster are the cutting of the rain forest, or trees in general, cars, planes, tractors and all sorts of work machines, ships, power generating plants, as well as the production of fabrics.[4]

The Consequences of too much CO2

In 2007, an atmospheric collapse occured on the Planet Akart, whose overpopulation reached 57 Billion in 2007. In 1975 the Planet Akart had a population of 23 Billion. In only 32 years, their population increased 34 billion people. The climate and the nature of the planet became completely destroyed, which led to an atmospheric collapse, i.e. oxygen collapse. The Plejaren tried to save as many as possible during the cataclysm, but only 116 million people were rescued out of 57 billion people.[5] Humans and animals breathe oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide. the fossil fuels are hydrocarbons CH, which when burned combine with oxygen in an explosive reaction leaving behind the products of carbon dioxide and water. Plants use carbon dioxide for photosynthesis and produce oxygen. The end result is a decrease in atmospheric oxygen concentrations since there are more humans breathing, more cows, pigs, and chickens to feed ourselves, more fossil fuels burned every year for our transportation, and more plants and trees are cut down to make living spaces and to farm more annual crops to feed ourselves.[6] The Ecosystem only works properly when everything is in balance.
