Geocache Description:

Carbon dioxide is one of a few gases that contribute to the 'greenhouse effect'. In 'normal' amounts, it helps warm our planet to a comfy cozy state. At 'abnormal' levels, it's generally considered a threat to life on earth.

Friend or Foe?
Carbon dioxide helps to balance plant and animal life. It's produced by plants and animals during respiration. It's also created during the burning of once living things (eg. wood, fossil fuels, etc.). When plants absorb carbon dioxide they store energy in the form of food, and they give off oxygen which is used by animals.

So what's the problem? Well, animals, plants, volcanoes and fires caused by lightning contribute to a certain level of greenhouse gases in our atmosphere. A compelling argument is building that we humans are contributing abnormal levels of greenhouse gases.

To contemplate the mysteries of life, download and play the Carbon Footprint Wherigo cartridge. The above posted coordinates will take you to the parking and trail head location. If you don't make an earth shattering discovery along the way, at least you can have fun trying.

Note: Don't forget to upload your completed cartridge to the Wherigo web site when you complete your mission.
