Let's do the math: CO2 is 3.42% of all greenhouse gases. Man-made CO2 is 3.2% of all CO2. 0.0342 * 0.032 = 0.1% So, if all the planet went 100% nuclear + solar power _tomorrow_, greenhousing drops by 1/10 of one percent. Should CO2 shedding stop 100%, another greenhouse gas would replace it; dihydrogen monoxide, which we *cannot* control (it absorbs 20X more IR in the same spectrum).

John Powell isn't good with grammar, and he doesn't have a proof-reader. If you get Floating to Space, you'll find loads.

So, how can one volunteer to proofread for JP? They also serve who only sit and blue-pencil... I hope.
