Well the good news is that nearly all industrial carbon dioxide is reclaimed from processes that release it in the first place. Of course that does mean that it has been released, but it's cutting down on the amount a little at least.
The carbon dioxide that fizzes your drinks up today could have come from burning fuel, yeast that were busy making beer or some chemical process that releases it as a by-product.
I forgot to say - I'll be taking the questions and answers from this section and build them into one or more webpages on the main part of the site.
