Welllllll, it IS, if that's all you have to breathe. O2 (oxygen) is much better, MUCH better.

It is interesting the degree to which the term 'carbon' is used, rather than 'CO2'. They are not, of course, the same thing.

If it were just a verbal shortcut, that would be one thing, but I think there is more to it than that. I suspect a lot of people, when they hear the term 'carbon pollution' or similar, imagine a dark, sooty, particulate substance. Certain uses of photography...trick photos taken in a way that make the water vapor emitted from cooling towers look like dark smoke...encourage such thinking.

Not if that is all you have to breathe.

It is possible, but insanely dangerous, to live in a (very low pressure) pure oxygen environment, but it's very much a last resort of the desperate space farer.
