Zeta: Bottom line is, the environment would love a little bit of extra CO2 in the atmosphere, because that's what the vast majority of living entities on this planet process in order to survive.

Just to pick up on one point that I missed, most of the environment would NOT love a little bit of extra CO2 in the atmosphere. Yes, plants process CO2 as part of photosynthesis to produce energy, but they also produce CO2 when they burn some of the stored energy overnight. It is also why CO2 levels are higher in the northern hemisphere's winter than summer. Most of the landmass (and thus plant life) is in the northern hemisphere, so when photosynthesis slows down during the nothern winter, CO2 levels increase as there isn't as much plant life in the southern hemisphere to soak it up.

All large forms of life, i.e., non-bacterial, require less CO2 in the atmosphere as they produce energy in reactions that produce CO2 as a by-product. Bacteria might welcome more CO2, but ants, plants and mammals would not.
