    St. Augustine Science
    Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is a very important molecule to life on Earth. Plants use it in making food – photosynthesis, and it is important for temperature regulation on Earth.  It “traps” heat during the day, along with other “greenhouse” gases, and releases it at night so it doesn’t get too cold. So, it is a necessary part of sustaining a livable environment.
