    Doesn’t exist. I suggest you take the other side, and do some nuembr-running. For the essay you could walk the reader through the process and the logic.If you take the weight of the atmosphere, (about 14.6 pounds per square inch of the earth) and divide it by the population of the earth.You get 830,000 tons of atmosphere per person. As a goodly percentage of the people in the earth have a difficult time heating the air within their home, is it plausible that the population of the earth could warm the entire atmosphere?
