ABSTRACT
The section presents a letter addressed to a Mr. Buckley regarding facts about the environmentalists' concern over carbon dioxide. Carbon dioxide constituted about 0.04% of the atmosphere in 1950. In 1992, it constitutes more like 0.06 percent of the atmosphere. Human activity cannot possibly be responsible for more than 6% of the observed change in carbon dioxide levels. In response to the letter, Mr. Buckley was grateful for the demonstration.
