Can We Double the CO2 Content of the Atmosphere

Thorpe Watson
Nomadic children in rural Tibet. Their lives would be improved by fossil fuels.

Thorpe Watson, metallurgical engineering and materials science: CONCLUSION - The debate regarding the alleged heat-trapping properties of CO2 is irrelevant because we cannot generate a significant quantity of this life-giving trace gas with our reserves of hydrocarbon fuels. Our atmosphere will continue to be CO2 impoverished. It is certainly impossible to double the carbon dioxide content of the atmosphere.
