How does the carbon get into the atmosphere in the first place?

Atmospheric carbon dioxide comes from two primary sources—natural and human activities. Natural sources of carbon dioxide include most animals, which exhale CO2 as a waste product. Human activities that lead to CO2 emissions come primarily from energy production, including burning coal, oil, or natural gas.
