    Default Question for the mask experts

    If one wears a mask won’t they rebreathe their own CO2?

    And isn’t CO2 a greenhouse gas that causes warming?

    Therefore won’t people who wear masks overheat their innards?

    Just reading the blurb preview of your post got this 90's classic playing in my head.

    By the way, you are not breathing in a bunch CO2 by wearing a mask. Breathing CO2 like your example would equate would cause you to suffocate. Maybe take 7th-grade science again.

    No.
    Air passes freely through virtually all masks.
    Water gets trapped and nice warm water is a terrific medium to grow things.
    Reuse those masks at your peril.

    I have that moron on ignore. Is he actually claiming that wearing a home-made fabric or consumer-grade mask will increase the CO2 level in your blood? I'm just shocked that the people I see in stores -- as well as the medical professionals I worked with in my career -- aren't dropping like flies. lol

    Good points. That's why you use disposables, or wash fabric masks.

    He's trying some crazed argument about global warming because we breathe CO2 wearing our masks. Well, that's what I got from the discussion preview anyway.

    Some do. Others dont, also wear the same gloves day in day out.

    Well, *anything* that impedes flow through the airway will increase the CO2 level in the blood lol.

    If you doubt me, hold your breath and watch what happens to your blood CO2. Just don’t hold too long, 30 seconds should be plenty.

    And for that reason, whatever benefits public mask use provide, they are mitigated by improper use.

    I see it virtually everywhere I go. One of the reasons I don’t wear one is because ‘not touching my mask’ is just one more thing to think about when I walk into the store or whatever.

    Besides, stores, restaurants and etc are low risk environments. Studies have shown the greatest risk is in compact crowds—coupled with, significant time.

    Avoid subways, crowded bars, crowds of lefty loons and etc, and the mask is basically a security blanket. Or ‘showing people that you care’ or whatever.
