Despite a global recession, carbon dioxide emissions rose by 1.94 percent in 2008 to 31.5 billion tons, the 10th straight year of significant increases. Emissions have risen by 40 percent since 1990.
Trapping Carbon Dioxide Or Switching To Nuclear Power Not Enough To Solve Global Warming
Remarkable finding that completely changes the way we understand global warming. Calculations show that three fourths of accumulated heat is from heat emissions. In other words, most of the global warming is from heat humans have generated, not from increased levels of greenhouse gas in the air. They also show that trapping carbon dioxide as sequestration, and storing it deep underground or on the sea floor, will have very little effect on global warming.
