    Even though the statement is factually true, it functions as a lie. 1) It ignores the rate and extent of carbon disxide. 2) It ignores the role that humanity has played in increasing CO2 since the Industrial Revolution. 3) It minimizes a desperately serious problem. 4) It undermines society's trust in science and public institutions. 5) It counters efforts to teach critical thinking.

    Taken by itself, it is as true as to say that over geologic time, earth’s temperatures have gone up and down. About 4.5 billion years ago, CO2 might have made up 25% of the earth’s atmosphere. When the earth cooled and the oceans formed, they absorbed a lot of the CO2. About 2.5 billion years ago, the proportion of oxygen soared due to bacteria and plants. In the recent millennia, CO2 represents about 0.038% (with 78% nitrogen, 20.9% oxygen and 0.93% argon).
