  1. Since 97% of the CO2 emitted is natural in origin and 3% is from combustion of fossil fuels, it’s not going to be a walk in the park to separate natural from man made. Here is a link to Scientific American showing where CO2 concentrations are highest, http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/first-maps-from-carbon-monitoring-satellite-show-global-co2-levels/ On the other hand, here is an image of urban “light polution” which shows where the greatest industrial development is, http://www.ehatlas.ca/built-environments/light-pollution Note that the south central African continent and South America Amazon regions have some of the highest CO2 concentrations but also some of the lowest levels of light polution.
