We are told that Climate change is being caused by an increase of 50 parts-per-million ppm of CO² in our environment. With our atmosphere historically being comprised of 400 ppm of CO² what the climatologists are telling us is that we are experiencing roughly a 25% increase in atmospheric CO².
Simultaneously, the sciences of anatomy, physiology, chemistry, physics and modern medicine have documented quite clearly for more than a century that elevated levels of CO² have detrimental, even fatal effects on humans. The effects of breathing increased carbon dioxide include;
- Increased heart rate
- When CO2 is breathed into the lungs, it dissolves in the water there,
diffuses across the alveolar-capillary membrane, and enters the bloodstream. As it combines with water, it forms carbonic acid, making the blood acidic. So CO2 in the bloodstream lowers the blood pH.
- This acidosis causes our blood to have an electrolyte imbalance.
- Belabored breathing
A whole host of other bad things happen to us when we breathe excessive amounts of this toxic gas. Dizziness, problems in the brain, numbness, lack of muscle strength, and the list goes on. With that said, we need to ask our “brilliant” Climatologist experts a very simple question; How can CO² levels affect the Earth’s climate, but escape the known scientific and medical effects on the human body?
