Human Caused CO2 Is a Small Fraction of Any Global Warming Greenhouse Gas

Im not saying that man isnt unbalancing the earth. And the methane issue is very interesting. Its a dynamic planet, with or without man.

flow of heat from Earth's interior to the surface is estimated at 47 terawatts

173,000 terawatts falls on earth from the sun

Mans consumption is 15 terawatts

water vapor accounts for up to 95% of the greenhouse effect

Anthropogenic CO2 additions comprise 3.207% of greenhouse gas concentrations, (ignoring water vapor).

Putting it all together:
total human greenhouse gas contributions
add up to about 0.28% of the greenhouse effect. A good number to remember when talking about carbon tax
