ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the impact of carbon dioxide (CO2) on the environment and the climate. It notes that greenhouse effect is dependent on the concentration of atmospheric CO2. It emphasizes that the burning of fossil fuels is the most essential factor in the accumulation of CO2 and that coal will add to a buildup of the gas and increases the consumption of other fossil fuels. Furthermore, a study of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences reveals that atmospheric concentration of CO2 might reach four to eight times that of the pre-industrial level by the year 2150 if the use of coal proceeds along the Administration's projections.
