Earth’s atmosphere is [currently] made up of 78.084% Nitrogen and 20.946% Oxygen. Argon makes up 0.934% and carbon [currently] 0.0407%. [Last official international record]
There are some other trace gasses making up 0.0019%... This is a constantly changing atmospheric situation – as it always has been after the formation of the Earth some 4,500 million years ago.
highest [observed not earlier theorised] carbon in the atmosphere was 4.000 parts per million or 0.4000% 500 million years ago. It has been as low as 180 ppm or 0.0180% on and off during the last 2 million years. The rise in carbon beyond the last
500,000 year cycles started at the beginning of the industrial revolution around 1800 where Atmospheric Carbon was approximately 280ppm 0.0280%.
China’s economy started growing after 1980 and
has doubled every decade since. At its current growth rate for the size and economic situation of its population, China will continue doubling for another 8 decades and an additional adjustment should be added for population growth.
economy with a similar population [combined approximately 2.8 billion] has been increasing 3.5 times per decade, since 1985 until 2010-20 decade where a reduction has been recorded. Similarly most of India’s population and capacity is un-served
by abundant commercially available energy.
It does not take a Newtonian Mathematician to state that on average the industrial revolution Atmospheric Carbon production that took
place between 1800-1950 within a population from 210million to 719million or from 21%-28% of the global population through the time of 1.billion 1800 to 2.5 billion global population 1950, is being dwarfed in growth comparison. At a conservative estimate by
2100 Carbon production by China and India’s growth of their fossil energy sector commitment and building schedule will be 5-7 times [X] the 150 years of the industrial revolution, mostly in the West from 1800-1950. That puts Carbon parts per million
at between 1,100ppm or 1,400ppm. That is 0.1120% to 0.1400% atmospheric Carbon year 2100.
The ominous [“Emergency, Crisis”] truth is that we human’s population 7.7 billion 2018
- ?.? billion 2100 need to get to grips with using our planet and our technology skill to absorb atmospheric carbon by only a maximum of 0.2100% + our annual production to maintain Earth Atmospheric Carbon at 300ppm. Don’t Panic!
[Or Have ‘A’ “Breakdown” to muddle your Lovely Life] It is a small task for humanity [who are just waking up from a loud unexpected Alarm Noise] It will be a piece-of-piss [easy] and we [they] will be able to burn as much of the old
black stuff as they have committed their economies to for as long as it is cheaper than wind efficiency or it runs out or until Quantum Energy Induction arrives.
