Fossil-fuel emissions Carbon in the atmosphere is due to carbon dioxide emissions from fossil-fuel burning and is considered to be a primary contributor to climate change. Using data from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) for selected years from 1980 and projected to 2050, global emissions can be modeled by the differential equation
where t is the number of years past 1980 and E is global emissions (in gigatons).
Solve this differential equation and find a particular solution that satisfies .
Graph your solution and compare it with the following graph that shows OECD’s data and projections.
