according to the president, who, no doubt, snoozed through any discussion of organic chemistry:

Patrick Moore, co-founder of Greenpeace: “The whole climate crisis is not only Fake News, it’s Fake Science. There is no climate crisis, there’s weather and climate all around the world, and in fact carbon dioxide is the main building block of all life.” @foxandfriends Wow!

So close. If only he had left off the word "dioxide."

Maybe that's the issue: Most of us are carbon based life forms. Maybe Trump is a carbon dioxide based life form.

Mr. Not,

Please look up "photosynthesis," then get back to us with an apology for your foolish top post.

For clarity :



That is the molecule for life as we know it.

BUT if we happen to add some oxygen to the mix like :



and it becomes a horrible toxic pollution that will end all life as we know it.

The plant produces OXYGEN for you to breathe by splitting off the atoms. But maybe your problem is your breathing too much CO2.
Ms. panzareta,

LOL, it so cute when you pretend that you know what your are taking about. Plants "inhale" carbon dioxide, then converts it to glucose, C6H12O6, through photosynthesis, releasing any excess oxygen.

If there was any CO2 molecules in the atmosphere, all plant life would die, as would all life.
