  1. Regarding the reduction of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere, a recent study of ice core samples in the Greenland’s glacier that goes back to 1950, show that the level of CO2 increased until 1979, and then went down to a level below 1950, Reasons given included the addition of the catalytic converter on cars, and cleaner fuels used in industry. Regarding atmospheric CO2 and forests, pictures from satellites following forest fires, show that the surrounding forests turn greener due to additional growth. Forests the world over are dying due to the low level of CO2 in the atmosphere. In greenhouses, growers increase the CO2 level to increase plant growth. Thus reductions in CO2 atmospheric levels, will result in reductions of food production. Further reductions have already occurred with the development of GMO food crops
