No, this part is wrong. CO2 is part of a normal ecosystem. Everything alive exhales it, and with higher CO2 levels, plants grow larger, filtering out MORE CO2. It actually balances out very nicely.
The problem is that cars/factories/etc. all put out more CO2, and we're getting RID of plants, rather than letting there be more of them.
Also all the chemicals and such arent great for the environment either.
In addition, depending on where you live, your computer might be running of Solar, Wind or Hydro-electric power - ALL environmentally friendly and renewable resources.
I believe statistically, if we could harness all the suns power that only hits OUR planet in 1 minute, we could power EVERYTHING for a year. We dont even need to remotely reach this goal. If we can get that much power out of 11 months, rather than 1 minute, we're still good.
Also nuclear fission. Done properly it SHOULD just give us Iron in the end (which is harmless).Edited by doomlord52 - 11/3/11 at 10:01pm
