Insects. Humans produce, through respiration (breathing) about 2 billion metric tons of carbon dioxide per year. If you add the production of carbon dioxide from the burning of fossil fuels and other human industry (26 billiion metric tons) and the respiration of domesticated animals (6 billion metric tons), the total carbon dioxide production that can be blamed on humans, directly or indirectly, is 34 billion metric tons. Insects, through respiration, produce 48 billion metric tons.

Do humans breathe carbon dioxide at times?

Yes, humans are constanty breathing in Carbon Dioxide, or CO2. This is because it makes up around 0.04% of the air that we breathe in. We do not, however, use the Carbon Dioxide. It is expelled as we breathe out, along with the rest of the waste Carbon Dioxide we produce as a by-product of respiration.

Why do plants cows and humans make carbon dioxide?

Plants don't make carbon dioxide, they produce oxygen. Humans and cattle, like all animals, produce carbon dioxide because we need oxygen in our bodies to function properly and live, and in order to do so oxygen gets converted into carbon dioxide which must be excreted or exhaled out of our systems so that more oxygen can be drawn back in.
