Breathing: The Surprising Contributor to Global Warming You Never Expected

The concept of technocracy is fundamentally opposed to humanity. At long last, scientists who are deeply concerned about climate change have openly acknowledged a simple truth: as a living organism composed of carbon, your mere act of breathing contributes to global warming. Naturally, this is beyond your control! Consequently, this revelation serves as both the ultimate solution and justification for decreasing the global population. – TN Editor

There are numerous actions that individuals can take to mitigate climate change, such as reducing meat consumption and opting for cycling over driving.

Unfortunately, breathing less isn’t one of them.

That might be a problem, as a new study claims the gases in air exhaled from human lungs is fueling global warming.

Methane and nitrous oxide in the air we exhale makes up to 0.1 per cent of the UK’s greenhouse gas emissions, scientists say.

And that’s not even accounting for the gas we release from burps and farts, or emissions that come from our skin without us noticing.

The new study was led by Dr Nicholas Cowan, an atmospheric physicist at the UK Centre for Ecology and Hydrology in EDinburgh.

‘Exhaled human breath can contain small, elevated concentrations of methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O), both of which contribute to global warming,’ Dr Cowan and colleagues say.

‘We strongly advise against assuming that human emissions are insignificant.’

As most of us remember from science classes at school, humans breathe in oxygen and breathe out carbon dioxide.

As we breathe in, the lungs receive air and the oxygen in the air transfers into the bloodstream. At the same time, carbon dioxide, which is a waste gas, moves from the bloodstream to the lungs and is exhaled.

With plants, it is the other way round; plants use CO2 to create oxygen as a by-product (the process known as photosynthesis).

Every person breathes out CO2 when they exhale, but in their new study, the researchers focused on methane and and nitrous oxide.

Both of these gases are potent greenhouse gases, however, due to their exhalation in significantly lesser amounts, their impact on global warming may have been disregarded.
