Correlations between carbon dioxide emissions and carbon contents of fuels
ENERGY SOURCES PART B-ECONOMICS PLANNING AND POLICY 1:4 421-427
The gases (they consist of three or more atoms) with higher heat capacities than those of O-2 and N-2 cause greenhouse effect. Carbon dioxide (CO2) is main greenhouse gas associated with global climate change. Collectively, they are projected to contribute, directly, about as much too potential global warming over the next 60 years as CO2. At the present time, coal is responsible for 30-40% of world CO2 emissions from fossil fuels. There were a higher correlation between amount of carbon dioxide emission and percentage of carbon in the fuel for all equations. The squares of correlation coefficients were 0.9999, 0.9978, and 0.9995.
