    Ummm...it's been a looooooooong time since my bio & chem classes, but don't trees & plants take in CO2 and emit O2? If CO2 is pollution, then plants are natural air 'scrubbers'.

    Another reply from someone who hasn't studied botany in a long time......

    Isn't the process reversed at night, and plants take in oxygen and give off carbon dioxide? That's why terrariums can function in bascially a sealed environment.

    Is there a botanist in the house?

    During the day, plants take in CO2 (boy, doesn't that look terrible? If only HTML code were ON...), combine it with water and energy from the sun to create O2 and sugar. At night, plants take in O2 to burn the sugar which releases energy, H20, and CO2. It's more complicated, but that's the gist of it.

    Well...I must've been napping. You're right, sorta. It's the people that are the problem. So, if you want to do your part to reduce greenhouse gases, you must stop breathing.

    However, the amount of CO2 emitted is small compared to the amount of O2 ommitted (or at least that's my understanding)

    Or the other possibility is that he never said it.

    I know what you mean. I must have collected 100s of them during grad school.

    True. However:

    "I’m trying to recall events that happened eighteen months ago, I’m afraid that I let myself be influenced by others’ recollections, not my own.... The only honest answer is to state that try as I might, I cannot recall anything whatsoever about whether I approved an Israeli sale in advance or whether I approved replenishment of Israeli stocks around August of 1985. My answer therefore and the simple truth is, ‘I don’t remember, period.’"
