Available evidence shows that CO2 concentrations vary with global temperature

In the Cretaceous period (90 million years ago), the CO2 concentration was 7 times higher than today, and in the Carboniferous period (340 million years ago), the CO2 concentration was nearly 12 times higher.30 When the CO2 concentration was 18 times higher, 440 million years ago (during the Ordovician period), glaciers existed on the continents of both hemispheres."*

evident from the above observations that the atmospheric concentration if CO2 is
not a significant factor in affecting the global climate since they had
apparently no effect the great glaciation periods of 450, 300, and 150 million
years ago, which are all, by their deep cooling, associated with major mass
extinction events of life on our planet. However, the CO2 concentration does
play a significant role that becomes critically challenged during the deep
Carbon is a critical
element for all life. No life would exist on this planet without it. We ingest
it with the food we eat, which invariably originates with plants. The plants in
turn get a large potion of their carbon from the air by splitting the carbon
dioxide molecule (CO2) into carbon and oxygen. The process is accomplished by
the chlorophyll molecule that uses the electricity from solar electromagnetic
radiation to sever the covalent bonds between the oxygen atom and carbon atoms
that bind them into the CO2 gas. For this process to work, the CO2 concentration
in the air has to be sufficiently dense.
operators are well aware of this. If they let the CO2 concentration become depleted
in their closed in facilities, the plant growth stops, and ultimate the plants
die. The average cutoff point appears to be in 150 ppm (parts per million)
range. The current global average concentration is in the 380 ppm range.
Greenhouse operators have experienced that by merely doubling the CO2
concentration in their facilities, increased plant growth up to 50% can be
achieved. Their experience is telling us that our world is currently operating
in a biological starvation mode. During the era of the great dinosaurs, 200
million years ago, when the CO2 concentration was many times higher that it is
today, the plant growth had evidently been immensely more vigorous than it is
today to have supported the colossal creatures that the dinosaurs became.
world being in a biological starvation mode at the present, the effect of the
Ice Age glaciation becomes critical. Large amounts of atmospheric CO2 gets
absorbed by the oceans in the cold polar regions where the oceans are teeming
with life, while at the same time large amounts of CO2 become released from the
oceans in the warm regions around the tropics that are radically leaner in ocean
life. By the interplay of the cold water absorption and the warm water release,
the global CO2 concentration remains essentially balanced. The balance however,
is temperate sensitive. The oceans contain 50 times as much CO2 than the
atmosphere does, so that lower rates of release during cooler climates in the
tropics, significantly affects the balance between the oceans and the
atmosphere. Ice core data from 'recent' indicate that the CO2
concentration dropped to much lower levels than we have today during the
corresponding loss of plant growth that results from lower CO2 levels, doesn't
bode well for outdoor agriculture during the deep glaciation cycles, even if the
agriculture was located in the tropics where the cold wouldn't affect it, so
that indoor agriculture appears to be only viable solution for mankind to
sustain itself during the coming Ice Age.
possible that this plot is flawed by errors in the process of ice core analysis,
so that the historic numbers were actually somewhat higher. The lower historic
numbers appear to reflect the need to provide evidence in support of the global
warming dogma of 1974 and thereafter. Professor Dr. Zbigniew Jaworowski
warned about this as far back as 1997, in a paper on the
difficulty in obtaining correct data, and later warned about the false
assumptions based on the false data in 2004, in a letter
to the US Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation.
the above illustration is useful to illustrate close coincidence of cooling
trends with lower CO2 concentration, which has thereby been well established in
the above Antarctic ice core samples. What is not shown in the long-term view
above, is that the CO2 variations lag an average of about 800 years behind the temperature changes.
This means that any future CO2 deficiency won't be critical for roughly 800
years after the next glaciation cycle begins.
