"Changes in world GDP (WGDP) have a significant effect on CO2 
concentrations, so that years of above-trend WGDP are years of 
greater rise of CO2 concentrations. Measuring WGDP in constant US 
dollars of 2000, for each trillion WGDP deviates from trend, the 
atmospheric CO2 concentration has deviated from trend, in the same 
direction, about half a part per million."
