Asked in Carbon Monoxide
Do trees use carbon monoxide?
Carbon Monoxide: is a colorless, odorless, tastless gas that when inhaled is toxic to humans. Carbon Monoxide: is a byproduct of a rich mixture fire, Burning wood, Gas fires, etc. Your answer is No! Trees use Carbon Dioxide which is what you release when you exhale. So-Live long. ...
How does carbon dioxide get out of your bloodstream?
It's not actually in your bloodstream. Our bodies convert oxygen (O2) to carbon dioxide (CO2) and we exhale it. Trees and other green plants convert carbon dioxide to oxygen and emit it. Cool, huh? Are you confusing carbon DIoxide (CO2) with carbon MONoxide (CO)? Carbon monoxide can attach to hemoglobin where oxygen usually does, resulting in poisoning. Moving to a normal room air environment will cause oxygen to replace the carbon monoxide, and in an emergency a high oxygen environment will do so...

Do cars emit carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide?
The principle carbon emission from cars is carbon dioxide. There is some carbon monoxide in the direct engine exhaust if the engine does not have the right air/fuel mixture. This is usually removed by proper operation (since 1975) of the catalytic converter. ...
Does clean burning natural gas emit carbon monoxide?
Virtually ANY carbon-based fuel, when burnt, or as the chemists call it, when "oxidized", will give off carbon monoxide. It is a natural byproduct of the chemical reactions that take place in any location where oxygen and carbon come in contact with each other. ...
Asked in Rainforests, Forests
What gas is increasing due to the destruction of the rain forest?
Both carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide. Carbon dioxide is caused by breathing of animals, and carbon monoxide is caused by burning. Trees and vegetation will absorb either. Carbon trioxide is unstable and does not exist outside of laboratories. ...
