Oak Ridge National Lab puts the total emissions from the oil fires at 130 million tonnes C or ~480 million tonnes CO2.

CO2 Emissions - Kuwait Oil Fires

So again, less than 3%.

Don't let the suffering continue. If you have Climate Change Denial Disorder, get help.
Recognition that one suffers from a disorder is the first step towards a cure .

Re: Why Climate Change Won't Matter in 20 Years

Here is something to think about some pages age there was a link that said there was less snow coverage than it used to be but Rutgers shows that there is more snow cover than normal . Rutgers University Climate Lab :: Global Snow Lab and the water under my keel is colder than I have seen in many years at 42° f in Sinclair inlet. Puget sound

1950 show ice, 2009 show rocks.

“He recalled seeing the glacier for the first time in 1955. The tongue then reached far down the steep mountainside, which today is hammered by a roaring waterfall pouring from the glacier lake and marking the starting point of Europe's mighty Rhone river”.
