Carbon Dioxide is Killing Us?

0.038% of the earth's atmosphere is carbon dioxide (CO2). So if the carbon dioxide concentration has gone from 280 ppm to 380 ppm over the last 150 years that means the percent change (as in a percent of the earth's total atmospheric gas content) has been largely negligible.

The hysteria over the "rise in CO2" and it's implication in global warming is unproven. This is the same maipulative tactics used by drug companies when pushing cholesterol lowering statins. They most always cite relative risk statistics instead of absolute risk statistics. The latter are more relative to the statins and as one would suspect, they suggest maybe 1 out of 80 people will benefit from taking them. The other 79 people will take a statin for a lifetime and not achieve a benfit. This is a statistic worth warming up to.
