"Blown away before it reaches the atmosphere"?? Sounds like rubbish to me. The wind is part of the atmosphere. Any CO2 gas that forms is part of the atmosphere. Where would it "blow" to? Can you remember what journal you read it in, as your current description doesn't give me enough to go on...You refer to "carbon", pure carbon forms either diamond or graphite, both solids. It is only when carbon (containing) materials are burnt to from carbon dioxide gas (or converted into methane), and therefore form gases in the atmposphere, that the "greenhouse" effect results. If you know about the carbon cycle you presumably know that but others may not and in any case the lack of precision makes discussion almost impossible.
