There’s a lot to be said for carbon dioxide. CO2 is one of the most abundant chemicals on the planet and yet it’s the least understood. This is due to the negative associations it has with climate change.
Over the decades, we’ve come up with terms like “carbon tax” and “carbon footprint,” which may have you convinced the compound is public enemy No. 1. While it may be true that much of the recent changes in our climate is due to an increase in industrial CO2, that doesn’t mean the gas can’t also be used in a way that has a positive impact on the planet.
