The whole thing is a scam that anybody of any age can work out, but waste of any kind is a bad thing.
I remember, and have many articles and news reports from then, that in the 1970's all the scientists agreed that we were heading for an ice age caused by human activities, and they well knew that CO2 was a greenhouse gas- something that has been known since the 19th century.
We have only been told scare stories about CO2 and its warming effect when Al gore and others realized that it was a brilliant political scam that could be used not only to tax people for any human activity that produces CO2 (which is just about any activity) but also to control all human activity.
As H L Mencken, a highly respected political observer and essayist wrote:
"The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace in a state of alarm, and hence clamorous to be led to safety, by menacing them with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary"
The present "hobgoblin" is CO2 and Global warming- and we are "led to safety" by controlling and taxing all human activity.
Just like the "hobgoblin" that was Iraq's "weapons of mass destruction"- the solution to which, we were told, was to invade Iraq spreading death and destruction to millions of innocents, and creating a safe haven for terrorists.
You might also bear in mind that If we accept your understanding of the extent of the effect of anthropogenic CO2 on global warming it would mean that without the industrial revolution creating CO2 we would now be in the depths of a severe ice age.
CO2 is the basis of all life on Earth, all the food for all that life and for the oxygen in the very air we breathe.
A bit of extra CO2 is good for all life on Earth, even the polar bears are thriving, contrary to the lies and propaganda, with their population tripled since the 1960s, and being able to successfully sustain and rear more sets of triplet cubs than has ever been recorded before.
Pollution is the enemy, CO2 is our friend.
You have been indoctrinated with an emotional belief- which people hold on top far more strongly than rational belief, try to rise above that and think for yourself.
The best you can do is love your fellow beings, live an honest life, don't pollute the environment, and do the best you can, you can change the world for the better- every important thing stems from that- we can't predict what disaster might come next, including the climate.
