    You are dodging the question.

    So would you like your electricity bill to skyrocket or not?

    If it makes it significantly easier to breath outside, I'll pay whatever for my minimal energy use.

    Do you believe that all the carbon dioxide out there is making it more difficult to breathe?

    Why or why not?

    Fossil fuel pollution contributes to both the onset and and aggravation of breathing conditions. It also is a major cause of death, especially among the elderly. So yes, the less the better. Even nuclear is a better alternative.

    Why are you dodging the question?

    I wasn't dodging. If my electric bill has to go up for the air everyone breathes to be cleaner, I'm for that. If it doesn't have to, then cool.

    Do you actually believe that the trace gas, carbon dioxide, somehow makes the air everyone breathes less clean?

    Why or why not?

    Please elaborate.

    It does. But particulates are a (literally) larger problem. However they tend to go together.

    Coal is obviously the worst, because the ash is radioactive.

    Howso?

    How do trace amounts of carbon dioxide make it more difficult for you to breathe?

    Yes, because I breath in oxygen & expel carbon dioxide
