CO2 means carbon chains and complex chemicals like our beginnings.
No, it just means CO2.
Quite a bit of that in the universe.
No well not exactly. I need some more professional opine on this but I believe that H20 can be locked inside the CO2 hydrate molecules clearly the planet in question from the
link I posted does show even at high atmospheric pressures had shown trace amounts of water vapor in the atmostphere, and in the case of Mars where one finds just the opposite
low pressure, cold and dry conditions those hydrates are probably locked hundreds of meters below the surface same hydrates on the hot one but depending on the evolution
of this greenhouse this locking depends on distance and age of Sun, but that' not the end
of the line if the evaporation of H2O were to bleed off then be forced under ground just
much like winter that remainder H2O would be held up below the hydrates simply because
the evolution works the opposite then that of hot high pressure still those hydrates on
planet x might replenish themselves all because the mass of the planet itself would tend
to accumulate carbon back to its center so on so forth.

Hubble finds carbon dioxide on an extrasolar planet
That is fantastic. I love every step we take towards finding other
life in the universe.
CO2 is probably not it.
But O2 probably would be. With H2O too even
