Found this quite interesting: BBC Weather - Carbon emissions mapped

Will this have an effect on the Northern hemisphere weather?
Any thoughts, facts and opinions?

None. Carbon Dioxide mixes globally rather fast, there isn't any local effect. The emissions are higher in the northern hemisphere because people and industry is more in the northern hemisphere.

Doesn't Carbon Dioxide create a warmer world? I mean this amount of CO2 can't be healthy!

Don't want to start a global warming debate. My point is the regional distribution of CO2 emission will have no consequences region-wide; the CO2 gets mixed globally.

Well, there's global warming where have you been?

The CO2 concentration in the air in the northern hemisphere is around 0.04%, as nei said the difference with the southern hemisphere is negligible. Minor health issues begin at around 0.1%. Occupied buildings feature much higher CO2 concentrations than the outdoors.

That is actually about a computer generated model of what they think CO2 looked like in the atmosphere for a year. (it also show CO, which is from fires and volcanoes)

I can't wait for the new satellite data, since watching this sort of thing is just pure joy to me. There is such a wealth of information in that short video. Watching the great Brazilian rain-forest actually breathing in the CO2, you can see the daily pulse there.

Watching the forests and agricultural areas absorb the CO2, seeing the great industrial centers, as well as the mass of humanity in Southeast Asia. The cycle of fires and crops, it's beautiful. It's also startling to see just how much burning the non-industrial world does each year.

You can even see the fires in Canada that year, as well as volcanic activity.

Look at Russia in the beginning and you see the Siberian high. From January to mid-March the carbon dioxide mostly avoids the area north of the Himalayas.

Looks like CO2 is still concentrated at higher latitudes than you'd expect given population and industry. Higher concentration north of 50°N in the winter across most of the globe. Summer it's lower than further south
