Who (or what) is responsible for CO2- curse and blessing of globalization in commerce as well as climate, fossil fuels and the striving for power:
The world's nuclear testing and A-testing:
To date, a total of 2058 nuclear tests have been carried out by eight countries worldwide.
The explosive force of all nuclear weapon tests can be assumed to be over 1 billion tons of TNT.
That is about 770 Little Boys bombs!
The atomic bomb "Little Boy" dropped over Hiroshima in 1945 had an explosive power of 13,000 tons of TNT.
About 2,200 satellites were orbiting the earth at the end of September 2019.
In the meantime, the USA is the clear market leader and has 'executed' a total of 161 manned rocket launches.
Russia has carried out a total of 145 successful manned rocket launches. (Total= 306)
A rocket launch consumes (less fuel than a typical transatlantic flight), ~77 tons of kerosene
How does the climate react to 770 nuclear bombs, 2200 satellites (= 170000 tons of kerosene) plus
161 manned departures (13,000 tons of kerosene), or 183,000 tons of kerosene in total (space travel).
One wonders what effect a variation (absolute) of 400 on e.g. 500 ppm CO2 in the air has (still) in relation to the facts quoted above!
As a reminder: 500 ppm are 500 parts per 1000,000 parts ("one (million") - it is called "parts per million", which is exactly 0.05 percent (= 0.05 %), i.e. a change from 0.04 to 0.05 %, = a (relative) deterioration upwards by 25 %.
One should ponder whether perhaps other effects than a short-term "CO2 variation" could "trigger" climate change.
I think it must have something to do with magnetism, even if it is only a - strong - PULSE.
The latter causes atomic nucleus explosions, including the experiments with it! In contrast to biosynthesis, it is something that has irreversible effects when the earth's poles, for example, "migrate".
By the way, there must be a reason, why they stopped testing nuclear weapons on the Marshall Islands ... ... and certainly not because of the Native Americans there.
The latter have been poorly compensated or not compensated at all.
