How many launches into space did the USA Military, Russian, NASA and privet companies launch in 2006?

What do you think the damage to the wourld's atmosphere is with each launch? How much dose this contribute to Globel warming?

I don't know the exact amount but I know that the U.S. had the most launches, followed by Russia, and then China. Companies can't afforded to really launch things into space and use NASA's help. Most people do not consider the U.S. Military's launches to be space flights because most are low orbiting Pegasus Rockets which are launch from planes.

What do I think the long term consequences are. Not much. Planes in the US alone use many times more fuel then the shuttle, in one day and we get much more scientific advancement from the shuttle then you going on a vacation to Disneyland.
