CO is carbon monoxide, it's poisonous. CO2 is carbon dioxide, it's not nearly as harmful, however it CAN cause suffocation if there's enough of it to displace the oxygen that the human machine requires to stay conscious.



Not to nitpick as it's usually a typo, but there may be some readers who may not be aware of the difference. We need to be accurate when discussing the safety issues involved. Inaccuracy erodes credibility.
