Cool it a bit?  Why?  I woulda said warm it a bit.

I sometimes worry about too little CO2.  If I were a plant I would be
worried about too little CO2.  Having too little oxygen would be no problem

My attitude might be shaped by being a co-owner of 14000 trees, upon which
my retirement income depends.  May they bloom and grow.  In that sense I
have a negative carbon footprint.  Or it could be said that I devour more
than my fair share of the limited carbon resources in the atmosphere.
