Humans use CO2 in many ways

Sponsored: hot xxx live chat
People make use of CO2 in so many different ways. As you probably already know, the fizzy quality of beer, soda, and other carbonated drinks comes directly from the CO2 used to make them. It’s a delicious way to enjoy a drink. Cake batter rises thanks to carbon dioxide that is released by baking powder or yeast. You’ve probably heard that it’s the yeast that makes it rise but that’s not 100% true!

Carbon dioxide is used in some fire extinguishers because it’s heavier than air and will essentially site like a blanket over the fire. Most importantly it prevents oxygen from getting to the fire, and without oxygen the fire is basically out of fuel. Solid carbon dioxide is dry ice and it’s used for all sorts of cool visual effects in many industries and at Halloween parties.
