    We present measurements of absolute cross sections for low- and intermediate-energy elastic electron scattering from CO2, which have been measured independently on different experimental apparatus in two laboratories. The results are compared with a number of previous measurements and calculations. Whilst there are some interesting differences between recent experimental determinations, the largest discrepancies are observed between experiment and contemporary scattering theory at very low energies.
