After all the planets warming has potential to produce positive outcomes as well. It has even been argued that carbon dioxide is not a pollutant; rather it is an essential component for photosynthesis, a process that indirectly supports human life deeming the greenhouse effect as normal. Furthermore the warming of the planet would result in less harsh and cold winters; in turn this would mean fewer deaths, predominantly among vulnerable groups such as the elderly. Environmentally this could potentially produce greener rainforests and enhanced plant growth in the Amazon, increased vegetation in northern…show more content…

Our info structure and the systems we have set up would suffer tremendously especially agriculturally, economically, environmentally and even health wise.

Opponents of global climate change say that global climate change is a naturally occurring process that’s been happening for a very long time. They go as far as to argue that carbon dioxide isn’t a pollutant, so “‘to suddenly label CO2 as a "pollutant" is a disfavor to a gas that has occupied a huge role in the development and sustainability of all life on this wonderful Earth.
