You could always take air samples over a period of time, probably a long period, and find out how the concetration is changing.

Also remember that when you burn gasoline or fossil fuels you are releasing CO2 and a few other things. Just think about how much gas and fossil fuels  are burnt daily. Also deforestation takes away the trees that would take in a lot of the CO2 in the air.
