Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a molecule composed of one carbon atom and two oxygen atoms. Plants consume carbon dioxide when they do photosynthesis. Carbon dioxide is also a greenhouse gas, stopping infrared radiation from leaving the atmosphere.

Too much carbon dioxide is poisonous to unmodified humans, but genetic engineering can be used to make humans resistent (crocodiles, for example, are resistent to massive amounts of CO2).
