Thread Subject: National assessment on climate change!

My reply to two questions... 1. Have we increased CO2 during the past century? Likely. 2. What is the percentage of human contribution to the overall change?
1. There is overwhelming evidence that we have increased CO2 during the past century by our use of billions of fossil fuel burning machines and reckless use of fertilizers.
2. There is overwhelming evidence that the percentage of human contribution to overall climate change and global warming is near 100.

More on CO2:
The figure below (at link) shows results of CO2 measurements of air trapped in ice cores taken at the Law Dome site in Antarctica, along with present day measurements at the CMDL Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii. CO2 amounts have increased about 35% in the last 200 years.
