What is carbon dioxide and how may it be harmful to drivers?
1. Carbon dioxide is a gas, non-toxic, with the formula CO2. 2. Carbon dioxide is not harmful for drivers. But: - carbon dioxide is harmful for the life on the earth because is a green house gas - carbon dioxide is not a breathing gas and did not maintain animal life - carbon dioxide is useful for plants, important in photosynthesis

Is carbon dioxide harmful?
Depending upon the circumstance, carbon dioxide can be helpful or harmful. Plants inhale carbon dioxide and exhale oxygen. So, in this instance, carbon dioxide is necessary for the health of plants. Carbon dioxide is produced as a byproduct of respiration by most animal on earth, such as human beings. We inhale oxygen, which is exchanged in the lungs for carbon dioxide to be exhaled as waste. Inhaling large amounts of carbon dioxide can lead to asphyxia (or asphyxiation), insufficient oxygen in the blood stream... which can lead to death.
