Do me a feavour and check out a physiology handbook. That is: CO2 DOES displace 
O2 from heamoglobin, BUT carbonmonooxid does irreversibly bind to O2 binding

A man conducting a gee-whizz science show with fifty thousand dollars' worth of
Frankenstein equipment is not doing anything scientific if he knows beforehand
what the results of his efforts are going to be. A motorcycle mechanic, on the
other hand, who honks the horn to see if the battery works is informally
conducting a true scientific experiment.
