    Ecologically speaking, a plant releases as much CO2 as O2 over the long haul, unless some of its organic matter ends up in rock. If the long haul is even longer, even that can be released.

    Maybe in them oppressed parts of the world! But we live in the good ol' U-S-of-A, free from the tyranny of evidence and its ilk.

    well i didnt think they really did, the way you were saying it, you were saying it was such a high amount of CO2 that it could make you sick, thats why your mom said she didnt think you should have your plants in your room because they release gasses at night...i was like, wtf untrue, now, i dont doubt they release a small amount of CO2, but not large enough to make you sick. and future references, keep my name out of the topic please?

    The net transfer of gases is such that CO2 is taken in by the plant, and oxygen (O2) is released. So it takes in more CO2 than it releases, as is true for any healthy photosynthetic plant, and releases more oxygen (O2) than it uses. Keeping plants in the room is actually healthy!

    Does that genius AlGore know about all this??

    He'll be trying to ban vegetation for emitting far too much CO².
