A carbon dioxide (CO2) is a naturally occurring greenhouse gas in the atmosphere, concentrations of which have increased (from 280 parts per million in preindustrial times to over 350 parts per million today) as a result of humans' burning of coal, oil, natural gas and organic matter (e.g., wood and crop wastes).

Other /More definition:
A Carbon dioxide is a colorless, odorless, non-poisonous gas that is a normal part of the ambient air. Carbon dioxide is a product of fossil fuel combustion. Although carbon dioxide does not directly impair human health, it is a greenhouse gas that traps terrestrial (i.e., infrared) radiation and contributes to the potential for global warming. See global warming.

Other /More definition:
Carbon Dioxide is Burning fossil fuels releases carbon that has been stored underground for millions of years into the atmosphere. The carbon in these fossil fuels is transformed into Carbon Dioxide, the predominant gas contributing to the greenhouse effect, during the combustion process. While Carbon Dioxide is absorbed and released at nearly equal rates by natural processes on the earth, this equilibrium may be disrupted when large amounts of Carbon Dioxide are released to the atmosphere by human activities, such as the burning of fossil fuels.
