## Mole Fraction Of CO2 Plotted Vs Year

Someone was complaining earlier about graphs not being zeroed. In order to correct this, I plotted CO2 mole fraction vs. year.

Hopefully that makes everyone happy.

Just having fun

Ah! Now I see! Worse than I thought.

that’s cherry picking.

Funny!

3. James Sexton says:

LOL, much better!

That is what a trace gas would look like.

A bottom line inhabitant.

Your mole fraction graph got me thinking about grapf scaling. Imagine if Al Gore presented a big stage scale temperature reconstroction from 1850 to now using equal spacing for each year (say 12″) and each degree (also 12″). He would have a temperature trend that would be 161 feet long (he’d need a big stage) with a 7.2 inch temperature rise. I don’t think Al would do something like that because it would have a striking similarity to the flatness to your mole fraction graph and we would laugh at Al when he acted all crazed about the trend.

heh heh heh. It would also be interesting to plot CO2 concentrations in dB versus time.

7. glacierman says:

Too much vertical exageration for my liking.

8. PJB says:

Or you could always plot its ability to control the global temperature, over time….errr, guess the graphs would look about the same….

9. ChrisD says:

Considering that 99.96% of the atmosphere is non-GHGs and has essentially nothing to do with keeping Earth warm, is the fact that this line looks flat really all that interesting, surprising, or meaningful?

• Given that 2-3% of the atmosphere is made up of water vapour, your numbers are off by about a factor of a hundred.

Nothing new there though.

• sunsettommy says:

Actually that is not true.

You forgot CONDUCTION.

• sunsettommy says:

I was answering ChrisD,who forgets that there are other ways to keep the atmosphere warm.

Very clever, keep on keeping on Mr. Goddard.
