116.6% increase in people versus a 25.8% increase in CO. That means as a percentage of population the per capita CO has gone down, at least that which is left in the atmosphere.

And how much has the foilage that absorbs CO has been reduced in those 50 years.

That means the efforts of reducing pollution over the last 50 years have paid off. Those efforts should be continued and accelerated.
