Abstract

This report examines the impact of trace gases, such as carbon dioxide, on a global scale. To establish quantitative results, a seven-reservoir model was implemented to test proposed policies to reduce the emission rate of anthropogenic carbon. Research was conducted, examining various methods of carbon mitigation, sequestration, and reduction. A 450-ppm concentration of atmospheric carbon, likely to be reached by 2050, is seen as a significant value in terms of lasting negative environmental effects on a global scale.
