Driving down on Saturday, we stopped off at Crickley Country Park in Gloucestershire.
On the information board there was the usual eco stuff we often see these days. At the top it mentioned (roughly)
Carbon Dioxide is a pollutant and is harmful to the environment.
According to the Oxford Dictionary, the definition of pollution is;
The presence in or introduction into the environment of a substance which has harmful or poisonous effects.
Clearly, CO2 is not poisonous, and far from being harmful is absolutely essential for life on Earth as we know it.
At best, the only argument can be that an increase in CO2 levels MAY, on balance, be harmful, but equally a reduction could be even more harmful.

Lima, Peru—Evo Morales, the president of the Plurinational Republic of Bolivia, is a superstar politician here at the 20th Conference of the Parties (COP-20) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. The press gaggle follows him around like puppies and enthusiastically applauds his unrelenting diatribes against rich industrialized countries. The headline is a quotation taken from Morales’ response to being asked at a press conference if he was optimistic about the summit meeting here in Lima? “The deep causes of global warming are not being dealt with here. The origin of global warming lies in capitalism,” asserted Morales. “If we could end capitalism then we would have a solution.”
Communist countries are famous for a clean environment and low emissions
