More carbon dioxide in the air is making make the earth greener because carbon dioxide is a nutrient for plants. Before the Flood carbon dioxide levels were several times higher than now, and life flourished. Fears about global warming overlook the fact that the Creator is continuing to preserve His earth to ensure its habitability (Isaiah 45:18).
