I have been researching the phenomenon of low levels of CO2, and this, my dear friends, is the grave information I have uncovered.
Via Wikipedia , an even slightly lower than normal CO2 level…
…reduces the carbon dioxide concentration of the blood to below its normal level, thereby raising the blood's pH value, initiating constriction of the blood vessels which supply the brain, and preventing the transport of certain electrolytes necessary forMore…
the function of the nervous system.
…low concentration[s] of carbon dioxide in the blood is known as hypocapnia. Since carbon dioxide is carried as carbonic acid in the blood, hypocapnia results in the blood becoming alkaline, i.e. the blood pH value rises. This is known as a respiratory alkalosis... low carbon dioxide levels… [Snip]… cause the brain's blood vessels to constrict, resulting in reduced blood flow to the brain…
This is very, very serious. I believe, based on these irrefutable and scientific facts upon which all scientists agree, therefore implying a consensus amongst them, that we must immediately, without delay, put into effect such policies that will increase the levels of CO2 in the atmosphere instantaneously. This must be a worldwide effort as human beings in every nation are in danger of suffering great illnesses from CO2 reduction attempts being implemented right now! How can those that promote CO2 reduction face themselves in the mirror day after day knowing that they are causing so much harm to their fellow man? What about the children? Will they be born into a world of sickness, illness, and death?
Consider the ramifications of people who might faint from low levels of CO2 while:
- driving on freeways;
- operating heavy machinery;
- piloting commercial airplanes full of women, children, babies, women pregnant with twins, nuns, Buddhist monks, environmentalists, grandmas and the entire Special Olympics bowling team;
- or steering container ships and oil tankers;
Some would argue that the efforts to reduce CO2 levels, without regard for dire consequences, are racist and imperialistic. Some would argue that those that continue to work towards minimizing CO2, in spite of all of the evidence supporting the disastrous harm this would bring, are exactly the same as those that thought the world was flat. They obviously do not care about people, or that reducing CO2 levels will most assuredly march us all into a worldwide, apocalyptic death camp.
