CO2 Reaches Nightmare Levels

The government reports that the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere has increased by 1:10,000 over the last century. That would be like packing an extra ten people into the Rose Bowl!

    You said, “…the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere has increased by 1:10,000 over the last century.” While that is strictly true, it minimizes the change observed. The accepted concentration before industrial emission began is about 280 ppmv (parts per million by volume). That works out to 2.8:10,000. The daily average level on Mauna Loa recently went over 400 ppmv. That works out to 4:10,000. (The average over the week or month or year has NOT surpassed this however. Also, May is typically the month which shows the highest CO2 concentration, so we should expect CO2 to decrease until about October.)

    So, the amount in the atmosphere has increased from 280 to 400 ppmv. That is a 120 ppmv increase, or a (120/280*100 =) 43% increase. CO2 is a potent, long-lived greenhouse gas. The physics of it’s effects are fairly plain. An increase of 43% in a century is alarming.

    FYI check the headlines, looks like Hillary getting pinned on Benghazi.

    As all the talking heads do an about face, best comment so far:

    Good news: Missouri Legislature bans UN Agenda 21: http://www.prisonplanet.com/missouri-legislature-bans-un-agenda-21-2.html

      Good stuff–the second state to do so after Alabama. BUT, did the Governor sign it? There are three states that have approved the legislation, but are awaiting their governor’s signatures. Perhaps we need to start petitioning and picketing the Masonic Halls.

        Take the initiative and do so then if thats the case!

      • Me says:

        I bet that is a no!

        I’ve been on it, Cuz! From the mayor, to borough council, to the redeveloper, to the NJ State Senate Fezident, Steve Sweeney, here in good, ol’ Gwassbowo, NJ (actually, the new name of the town is Rowanville). That’s the reason my wife and I haven’t had our home/business stolen from us yet (but, we’re the last ones). Speaking truth to power isn’t too well received here in South Jersey–especially when the “power” people can’t do anything more noble in life than make meatball sandwiches for the 1967 LBJ-Kosygin “let’s adapt the Communist Manifesto so it fits America” summit. Of course, the meme is forever “Global (i.e., Communist) to Local,” or, if you will, “Let’s plunder the hard-working American middle class because we’re lazy, jealous, but Satan-smart enough to find a way to steal their lifestyles from them because they’re so unsuspecting and we’re so nice.” Here’s where the stupidity begins and ends here in Gwassbowo, NJ–a group of idiots that would sell their souls to “look good” for EPA, state and/or federal grant monies, but who created the problem to begin with. It’s a great article that argues for more restrictive immigration policies IN THE 1930’s!

        Good, so don’t burn people like you did with Me in the future, and Noted!

    • I. Lou Minotti says:

      Have you been up late smoking crack again, “Me?” Please take thought of the wife and kids. I do, however, enjoy your posts on NJ.com.

    • I. Lou Minotti says:

      Did you read the article, Joe, or do you know it by heart?

  4. I did want to mention how loud I was laughing when I saw this post Steve. I had a major outburst of laughter today, one of those “you owe me a keyboard” moments. Not saying it was top 10, but definitely top 100 stuff. For people who study climate, your humor is priceless. Thanks again.

    The BBC is crying loudly (for the last 7 hours) on the world service that mans done nothing to stop the GHGs or CO2 climbing over 400ppm. Roger Harrabin sounds almost weeping with joy.
    News? What news. So why is it so f***ing cold BBC?

      No blue cloud of steam yet! Me and the rest of us are still here. 😆

    • R. de Haan says:

      BBC…just forget all about. They have been removed from my favorite media list a long time ago. Should we worry about that. I think so. After the thinnest book in the world which is titled “One Thousand Years of German Humor my favorite media list comes second.
      That can’t be healthy.
