The few of you who may not have read this wonderful book I recommend it to you you can get it from Amazon any other bookstores I think you can even get

In favor of this picture but co2 is not part of that picture co2 it’s completely invisible as goose mentioned the earlier co2 is the stuff of life we’re made of carbon we exhale carbon were busy polluting the world in this room simply by breathing out and I’d like to point out that our own brass doesn’t differ that much from the composition of power plant exhaust it’s mostly the nitrogen that we breathe in not much happens to that there’s a more oxygen or in our breath but there’s oxygen left and a power plant to because it’s normally run a little bit oxygen-rich and then there’s water and co2 so exactly the same components that’s what you need to get energy in the world that we live in.
