Akula, do you actually have a source relating to that discrepancy you mentioned earlier between CO2 emissions and CO2 increases in the atmosphere? I'd be interested in researching it myself, since I'm yet to see anyone credible actually state that.

Just previously published figures on the mass of earth's atmosphere, CO2 emissions, and estimated changes in CO2 content.

The rest is easy math.

I think he were asking where those figures were published, and by whom. Could you post a link for the rest of us to read?

Yeah, sorry. By "do you have a source" I actually meant "what is the source". Most other people are basing their arguments on the linked IPCC FAR (which is an interesting read; at least, what has been released of it is), but you've been asked a few times now, so...

Frickin' exactly.
