Man’s contribution to CO2 concentration is 4.3%

Man’s contribution to CO2 increase is 15%

The average residence time is 4 years.

 

Highlights

 

•     We present a carbon cycle with an uptake proportional to the CO2 concentration.

•    Temperature dependent natural emission and absorption rates are considered.

•    The average residence time of CO2 in the atmosphere is found to be 4 years.

•    Paleoclimatic CO2 variations and the actual CO2 growth rate are well reproduced.

•    Human emissions only contribute 15 % to the CO2 increase over the Industrial Era

 

Abstract

Climate scientists presume that the carbon cycle has come out of balance due to the increasing anthropogenic emissions from fossil fuel combustion and land use change. This is made responsible for the rapidly increasing atmospheric CO2 concentrations over recent years, and it is estimated that the removal of the additional emissions from the atmosphere will take a few hundred thousand years. Since this goes along with an increasing greenhouse effect and a further global warming, a better understanding of the carbon cycle is of great importance for all future climate change predictions. We have critically scrutinized this cycle and present an alternative concept, for which the uptake of CO2 by natural sinks scales proportional with the CO2 concentration. In addition, we consider temperature dependent natural emission and absorption rates, by which the paleoclimatic CO2 variations and the actual CO2 growth rate can well be explained. The anthropogenic contribution to the actual CO2 concentration is found to be 4.3%, its fraction to the CO2 increase over the Industrial Era is 15% and the average residence time 4 years  (emphasis added)
