      ...human industry is not the only source of CO2 in the Earth's atmosphere; vulcanism, wildfires, and the respiration of living organisms also contribute, and were responsible for the few hundred PPM of CO2 found in the Earth's atmosphere in preindustrial times.

      The excess of CO2, emissions at a rate above and beyond the ability of the planet's natural CO2 "sinks" to absorb, that is, quite clearly, of human origin....
