Myth #5. Plants need carbon dioxide (CO2)
Another myth says that plants need carbon dioxide in order to live, however, this is not true. It’s important to understand that plants store large amounts of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere every year.
However, as forests are being cut down worldwide, the amount of carbon dioxide they can absorb is limited. Just to make some things clear, carbon dioxide itself is not harmful, as it is a natural part of our global ecosystem and we need it in order to survive.
But the problem we’re now facing is the amount of carbon dioxide produced by us, humans. It’s quite alarming but the carbon dioxide levels have never been this high as they are now in over 800,000 years.
