ABSTRACT
The article focuses on global greenhouse gas emissions as of 2014. It makes reference to the report "Vital Signs," by Supriya Kumar of Worldwatch Institute in Washington, D.C. It discusses emissions from fossil combustion, cement production, coal, natural gas and flaring. It also examines rising coal use in countries such as Germany and Japan, warming effects from other gases such as methane, nitrous oxide and cholorofluocarbons and rise in atmospheric carbon dioxide.

    Measurements of in atmospheric CO2 are an effective method of separating CO2 additions from fossil fuel and biospheric sources or sinks of CO2. We illustrate this technique with vertical profiles of CO2 and analysed in whole air flask samples collected above Colorado, USA in May and July 2004....
