OK, fizzy drink release CO2, more and more fizzy drinks are being drunk, could another gas be used instead, etc., or is the problem just my having children who ask me this kind of thing?

....the amount of c02 released into the atmosphere by opening a carbonated beverage are negligable....i would think that technically they could be contributing to global warming...but it's unlikely as the amount of cO2 released by them is probably absorbed by house plants....the issues with co2 and global warming is when there's an overwhelming amount of co2 released into the air (large enough quantities to where plants cannot naturally "scrub" the air) such as factories, car exhaust, etc... fizzie drinks...probably not gonna make a difference

Oh, I hope it's not a problem - while I don't drink soda, it could severely curtail that beer consumption...

Leave the beer alone, on the CO2 thing he probably breaths out more CO2in the time to drink it than is in the whole can.

Back away from my Pepsi, and no one will get injured. There's no possibly way that my caffeine addiction is harmful to the environment. It's just harmful to others if I don't consume the required amounts.

True and I cannot really see any other gas to replace carbolic asid too so I guess we will just have to drink it.

You could always drink non carbonated bevarages they arent great for your teath, ive gone of it prefer flat drinks(apart from beer but not a morning drinker).

I get my caffeine fix from Tea, im ridiculously addicted to caffiene sometimes now im in my holidays from uni i feel it, when im commuting im tired so i have a nice coffee in the morning and afternoons loaded with it but now im nowhere near a source of good coffee im totally antzy coupled with chronic insomnia it aint good.
