An econometric analysis is provided of the system of relationships involving global CO2 emissions, atmospheric concentration of anthropogenic CO2, and global surface temperature increase since the preindustrial era. Empirical methods used are feasible generalized least squares and generalized method of moments. It is found that global surface temperature increase is estimated to have a positive effect on the CO2 absorption capacity of the environment.
