Tim Thomas's insight:

Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a byproduct

of a chemical conversion process used in the production of clinker, a component of cement, in which

limestone (CaCO3) is converted to lime (CaO). CO2 is also emitted during cement production by fossil fuel

combustion and is accounted for elsewhere.

Solar Radiation and Climate Experiment (SORCE) Fact Sheet : Feature Articles

Earth scientists will move a step closer to a full understanding of the Sun's energy output with the launch of the Solar Radiation and Climate Experiment (SORCE) satellite. SORCE will be equipped with four instruments now being built at the University of Colorado that will measure variations in solar radiation much more accurately than anything now in use and observe some of the spectral properties of solar radiation for the first time. With data from NASA's SORCE mission, researchers should be able to follow how the Sun affects our climate now and in the future. (Original 2001-11-30; updated 2003-01-21)

Ed suggested this would be a good addition to the new WUWT CO2 reference page, and I agree, but thought it should get front page attention first. It is a condensed version of an essay published earlier this year.
