	I think the concentration above (800 ppm) was supposed to refer to the
water coming out of a very! efficient CO2 reactor.  That is, it was the 
concentration corresponding to a CO2 pressure of 1 atmosphere, instead
of the 0.0003 atm or so partial pressure in the air.  I make the number rather
higher than 800 ppm, but that is definitely the in the right ballpark.
