  1. natural sources:

    - burning of fossil fuels
    - volcanic eruptions
    - decay of plant and animal matter
    - resperation

  2. thank you, I just found it before you replied. Now I am looking for health effects. I know it causes global warming, but I am not finding health effects.

  3. - Asphyxiation. Caused by the release of carbon dioxide in a confined or unventilated area. This can lower the concentration of oxygen to a level that is immediately dangerous for human health.
    - Frostbite. Solid carbon dioxide is always below -78 oC at regular atmospheric pressure, regardless of the air temperature. Handling this material for more than a second or two without proper protection can cause serious blisters, and other unwanted effects. Carbon dioxide gas released from a steel cylinder, such as a fire extinguisher, causes similar effects.
    - Kidney damage or coma. This is caused by a disturbance in chemical equilibrium of the carbonate buffer. When carbon dioxide concentrations increase or decrease, causing the equilibrium to be disturbed, a life threatening situation may occur.


    I just copied and pasted this from a site. I don't know if the information is true or not. You`ll have to verify.
    I would post the link on here but I don't think we're permitted to do so.

  6. Type in MSD and CO2 into a search engine.

    (MSD stands for material safety dats)
