Don't be absurd, Bob. The ecosystem would not have survived 4.6 billion
years if it weren't self regulating. That it is self-regulating is not
even in doubt. The only thing in doubt is to what extent the system can
stand abuse.

It regulates itself. The extra CO2 encourages the growth of plant life.
The plant life absorbs the CO2 and cools the planet. Particulate
pollution encourages rain clouds to form, which in turn cause rain and
clean out the particulates and encourage plant growth.

All of this works as a system with feedback controls. The only question
is how far you can go before the system goes unstable.
