He reveals that the atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide, the most important greenhouse gas produced through human activity, has increased to 379 ppm. in 2005. He stresses that aviation imposes a minimal burden, 2-3% of a given day's carbon dioxide emissions. He warns that global warming has the potential to affect the world economy of the 21st century.
