Why is carbon dioxide needed?
carbon dioxide is needed for the trees. we need oxygen and they need carbon. we breathe out carbon dioxide and somehow i guess trees breathe out oxygen and then everyones happy!! answ2. Carbon dioxide is produced by volcanoes, and since the Algae invented photosynthesis, (about 2.4x109 years ago) we have had plants to suck up CO2 and give out O2. And grow lots of trees and grass and fruit. Which is a good idea.

Why is Carbon Dioxide known as Co2 important to the world?
The good side of Carbon Dioxide: * Carbon dioxide is the primary source of carbon for plants to turn into cellulose, sugars and other plant products including all of our grain, fruit and veggie foods, wood and nuts. * Corals, clams and other critters use carbon dioxide in the water to build their shells * All limestone and marble in buildings was once gaseous carbon cioxde * Our breathing is regulated by the CO2 levels in our blood * It's the"sparkle" in Evian water The bad side of Carbon Dioxide: * Carbon dioxide traps heat in our atmosphere, this is good in low levels but promotes Global Climate Change as the concentration goes up. * Carbon dioxide can be emitted at high rates from volcanoes and suffocate folks living nearby

Do plants produce carbon dioxide?
Yes, for the most part, all life as we (humanity) understand it, produces carbon dioxide. HOWEVER, Plants generally produce a NET NEGATIVE amount of carbon dioxide. Animals breathe in Oxygen, use this to burn stored energy and perform work within the body, and in the process bond the oxygen to carbon producing carbon dioxide which is exhaled. Plants do the same thing. they absorb oxygen, and use it in the process of burning energy to fuel growth, repair, produce fruit, etc. The misconception is common that plants do not use oxygen and do not create carbon dioxide. This stems from the process of photosynthesis, wherein the plant absorbs carbon dioxide from its surrounding atmosphere, uses it in converting light energy to a form usable by the plant, and in so doing separates the carbon and oxygen atoms, 'breaking' the carbon dioxide. The oxygen is then released back into the environment, In most plants, they consume more carbon dioxide and produce more oxygen than the reverse. As a result, the plant takes in more carbon dioxide than it expels, and as such 'effectively' (but not literally) producing no carbon dioxide.
