These curves show the different radiative forcing for changes in CO2. The formula is logarithmic in nature, so an increase of 100ppm does not have a linear increase in temp. AGW curves are shown. Saturation effects can greatly alter that.

These curves also show a wide variety of radiative forcing versus CO2 levels.

The curve on saturation is worth noting, as that is a distinct probability for CO2.
