How do we turn oxygen into carbon dioxide?

You don't just turn oxygen into carbon dioxide (not without nuclear transmutation anyway). You combine oxygen with carbon (or a compound that contains carbon) in a combustion process and get carbon dioxide. This can be something as simple as burning coal in a furnace, or as complex as the biochemical process that goes on inside the cells of your body.
