In 2013, researchers at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory found that carbon dioxide had measurable negative effects on human cognition at levels as low as 600 parts per million. That was confirmed by a Harvard study this summer.
There hasn't been much research done on the long-term effects of exposure to high levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide on human beings; even NASA has called for more. There's some speculation (alternate link) that the projected increase in CO2 will result in serious health consequences for human beings by the end of the century.
