The deminishing effect on temperature of increasing CO2 concentrations

As the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere increases the effect of incremental increases of CO2 decreases.  This rapid logarithmic diminution effect is well understood by climate modelers. There is a good summary of this here at WUWT. The following graph puts it all in perspective. Even  if successful the so called “war on coal” will have no measurable effect on atmospheric temperature changes.
