Carbon Dioxide

2019-05-28 carbon dioxide



Production Notes:

You know there has to be more to this story. How is photosynthesis going to solve our problems? What is Muff going to do with that knowledge? Could be anything; they are very resourceful, you know. Stay tuned.

Are we actually going to raise Earth’s temperature by 6 degrees Celsius by the end of the century? Thatch is referring to an extreme worst case scenario, which could come about if we don’t institute any measures to limit carbon emissions. Assuming we do something to change course, we will likely see “only” 2 to 4 degrees (Celsius) of warming by 2100. That would be somewhere between disastrous and catastrophic.

Are we going to invite catastrophe or fight for a better world? I suppose it depends on whether we humans decide to care more about our own lives than short-term profits.


Thatch: I hear human activity is going to raise global temperature by 4 to 6 degrees.

Muff: That’s bad!

Thatch: It likely means the end of human beings.

Muff: And chickens.

Thatch: And dogs.

Muff: But don’t worry, I have a plan.

Thatch: Oh?

Muff: All we have to do is suck most of the carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere.

Thatch: Is that all! And how do you do that?

Muff: It’s in the works… I’m taking a class in photosynthesis.
