Global Energy and CO2 to the Year 2050
One of the important by-products of the combustion of fossil fuels is carbon dioxide (C02), a nontoxic, colorless gas with a faintly pungent odor and acid taste. Carbon dioxide is not commonly thought of as a pollutant. Rather, COs plays an important role in the determination of the global climate. The presence of C02 in the atmosphere produces a "green-house effect," allowing incoming sunlight to penetrate but trapping heatradiated back from earth. Man's ability to significantly affect COs levels through use of fossil fuel gives rise to the possibility of climate change atunprecedented rates.
