Thanks for having me on the show!
Just started listening to this ep during my (short) commute. About burning gas (see, I can speak American!) generating more CO2 than the amount of gas – I thought that odd too when I had to do some calculations at work. Then I realised what is going on. Gas is a hydrocarbon, which is combined with air, and burnt. The carbon from the gas is combined with the oxygen from the air to make CO2. And the resulting CO2 weighs more than the gas used.
