- The temperature goes down as you go up (Troposphere) - The temperature goes up as you go up (Stratosphere) - Hemoglobin: oxygen-carrying compound in blood - Carbon Monoxide binds the HMGB which decreases the O2 carrying capacity of the blood, inhibiting transport, delivery, and utilization of oxygen - Brain regulates breathing based on CO2 levels in the blood rather than O2, so a victim can succumb to anoxia without ever noticing anything up to the point of collapse - CO2 has a significant affinity to the iron or copper sites in HMGB (240 times stronger than O2) - Catalysts typically reduce carbon monoxide emissions as much as 80 percent and today’s passenger cars are capable of emitting 90 percent less CO2 over their lifetime than their uncontrolled counterparts of the 60s - By 1975 thanks to EPA standards most new cars equipped with catalytic converters - CO2 emissions from cars increase in cold weather; this is because cares need more fuel to start
