Pro

CO2 is killing the planet, all breathing things, except those that know this, should stop or do less of it right now, to save the planet for those that know this. That is the global warmists, (er,... climate changologists?) status quo, and you will better off if you are one of they, for reasons of self esteem, the greatest drug ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Con

Completely cutting off CO2 emissions would actually harm the world. Also, the planet itself is not in danger. If there was nothing but CO2 in the atmosphere, there would still be a huge rock floating around the sun at the pace of 365 days, just without a lot, if not all living things. "Saving the planet" is the wrong term to use. The planet isn't going anywhere. The planet is fine... The people are the ones in trouble.

Pro

No global warming theoreticist, or climate changologist, would deny that CO2 is a destructive gas, one which we exhale thousands of times daily. Their breath is better then most, that is why they fly in jets.

Con

CO2 is destructive to the OZone layer, and hetrotrophes on the planet, there's no doubt. But this rock evolving around the sun will be hear no matter how much CO2 is in the air. The lives on the planet may go away, but the ball going aorund the sun will not.

Pro

According to the UN/Agenda 21 disciples, overpopulation is the problem, unless you wish to be a 350.ogre, with a big fat trust fund and the time to protest, we should all stop living right now. I agree that this rock will keep spinnin' and there is nothing that can stop it, except god.
Ozzyhead

Con

I disagree that a deity can stop the world. If this so called deity needed 6 days to create it, instead of just snapping his fingers and putting it all in to place, and than this all powerful deity needed to rest, I don't think he's going to go through all this again in reverse. But that's a whole new argument. Stopping all CO2 emissions is very bad. And the point of one living being is to keep it's species going. If we die off, than we would defeat our point of killing us off.

If you want more CO2, then vote against global warming fool. We will need to burn a bunch of things if it gets too cold. 59 degrees is about my threshold, and yours? Long term.

I know you didn't say that. But the Con debator did. Here is his exact posting "CO2 is destructive to the OZone layer, and hetrotrophes on the planet,"

A few degrees of cold will not cause worse. It has to get down below freezing temperature to even begin to be a problem. Aside from this, we have had at least 5 major ice ages (read more about it here http://en.wikipedia.org...) and we are still around. Ice we can handle, you get too hot and biological systems will denature.

A few degrees of cold will cause worse, and I never stated that CO2 was ozone destructive.

Both the pro and the con debator need to check their facts a little more closely. CO2 does not destroy ozone. The amount of CO2 on this earth has always pretty much been the same. We are just releasing the CO2 that was around a few million years ago (the fossil fuels we are burning are dead animals who sucked up the CO2 and transformed it into oil or coal) When dinosaurs were around the CO2 in the atmosphere was a LOT higher than it is now and life on earth will not be destroyed. Plants will still thrive and chance with evolution. The biggest problem we will have is the run off rampart green house effect. A few degrees of heat can cause a lot of trouble for a lot of life on this planet.

Holy smokes, I actually like that point of view you have and agree with all my cells. Can you explain why all the politicos give such credence to the fear mongering of the whackos?

This planet has been through ice ages, meteorites, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions,floods,asteroids,sun flares,atomic bomb testing,. And you whackos think that driving SUV's will somehow cause us to go spinning off into the universe out of control.How lamebrained is that.

Mount Vesuvius put out more CO 2, than all the power plants and SUV's combined. And guess what, we are still here.Sometimes I think just what are they teaching these kids today that have turned so many of their brains to mush?

CO2 is plant food. They take in CO2 and emit oxygen. How is that killing the planet?You have been lied to. The environmental whacko's just want to use government force to control our lives through regulation.And if those whacko's believe that even we are polluting the planet by breathing, then they should stop breathing themselves to save the planet.

While I agree that CO2 emissions should be reduced, an immediate cutoff of CO2-generating processes would cripple world infrastructure. Most power plants burn some kind of fuel. Furthermore, transportation would be completely removed, and the world economy would collapse as goods could not be transported. CO2 emissions need to be reduced over time, and an extreme solution like this would only succeed in preventing such a reduction by killing most of humanity, as many agricultural systems depend on either diesel powered equipment or imported goods like pesticides.

I agree with The Instigator, because CO2 is killing many living things that we need to thrive as a human species. If all trees were to be cut down, then that means that the human species is on a timer to extinction.

Reasons for voting decision: Conduct - Tie. Both had proper conduct. S&G - Con. Pro made several grammatical errors which outnumbered Con's. Arguments - Con. Pro failed to present any coherent arguments, and instead simply shared opinions and potential threats while failing to provide any proof for these claims. Con was able to refute every point raised by Pro whereas Pro failed to present any proper counter-arguments to maintain the burden of his position. For these reasons, Con wins arguments. Sources - Tie. Neither utilized sources in this debate.
