More On Global Warming....

As Curt Vonnegut explained in his book, God Bless You, Mr Rosewater (1965)....
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers -- joined in the serious business of keeping our food, shelter, clothing and loved ones from combining with oxygen.
Life on earth is carbon based life. So when it lives and grows, life absorbs carbon. When it dies, decomposition involves combining with oxygen and one of the by-products is CO2. With the case of fossil fuels, carbon did not combine with oxygen creating the fuel and only combines with oxygen when we use it to power or vehicles, homes, etc.

None of the CO2 that is being released into the atmosphere, wasn't there previously. It all originally came from the atmosphere so we are just re-releasing it back.

So, we are actually liberating the carbon!
