Biology/carbon dioxide level in a green house

Question
Greetings Deb,

My question is about green houses and carbon dioxide levels. Why do green houses have higher carbon dioxide (CO2) levels than say, outside? Don't plants use CO2 for photosynthesis?, and the CO2 levels in green houses should be lower, rather than higher? even considering the CO2 generated by plants' cellular respiration.

Thank you in advance.
