Default Carbon dioxide levels hit landmark at 415 ppm, highest in human history

Carbon dioxide levels hit landmark at 415 ppm, highest in human history

Quote:
Carbon dioxide levels in Earth's atmosphere hit a stunning milestone over the weekend.

Data from the Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii showed that carbon dioxide levels surpassed 415 parts per million Friday.

"We don't know a planet like this," Eric Holthaus, a meteorologist and writer at Grist, an online environmental magazine, posted on Twitter.

Carbon dioxide (CO2) concentrations have skyrocketed far higher than any levels in more than 800,000 years, according to data from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California-San Diego, and levels have not been this high for millions of years, Holthaus said.

"This is the first time in human history our planet's atmosphere has had more than 415 ppm CO2," Holthaus tweeted. "Not just in recorded history, not just since the invention of agriculture 10,000 years ago. Since before modern humans existed millions of years ago."
Quote:
Carbon dioxide levels millions of years ago were higher than 2019 levels, but Earth's temperatures were also far higher. In the 800,000 years before the Industrial Revolution, CO2 levels didn't surpass 300 parts per million.

Homo sapiens didn't emerge until about 300,000 years ago, and some of their predecessors were around about 2 million years ago.

Quote:
CO2 is the greenhouse gas scientists say is most responsible for global warming. When fossil fuels such as coal, oil and gas are burned to power our world, they release CO2 and other greenhouse gases such as methane. These gases trap solar radiation in the atmosphere.
Quote:
The temperature rise cannot be explained by natural factors, scientists said. In the past 20 years, the world's temperature has risen about two-thirds of a degree Fahrenheit, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said.
Quote:
Using computer simulations along with paleoclimatic data, a study this year from the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research reported that carbon dioxide has reached levels in our atmosphere not seen in 3 million years.
welcome to the Eocene 2.0

So what.

EoCine 2.0 is about to enter an ice age. Good thing we have that blanket of CO2 to keep us warm. And as the world wide temps drop, we Americans have energy independence. So there is no reason to worry about exhausting the atmospheric CO2 keeping us warm.

Quickly, everyone.

RUN!

*yawn*


This global scare is beginning to bore the hell out of me.

I smell nothing but con game ass holes wanting to make money out of every bit of carbon dioxide and methane that is produced.

Co2 is good for you.

IN truth 415is the highest recorded CO2. We have only been "recording the data since 1958.
https://answers.yahoo.com/question/i...3232131AA2Uv72

Jan 13, 2009 · How long has Global warming data been recorded? . ... The longest useful record of carbon dioxide concentrations is from Mauna Loa, Hawaii, and was started by Charles Keeling in about 1958. ... We have not been studying the Earth long enough with adequate data on CO2.
Most CO2 prior to this was done by unreliable proxy measurements.


The entire scare from the environmental terrorist is to confuse and confound us. That's why there is so much unreliable and contradictory information. Confused people are easier to control. Add fear and they will be more likely to comply.

The person who asked "why are we afraid" is no longer a sage of wisdom but the enemy of the state.

More CO2 is great for plant growth.
CO2 is not a poison. And even many climate scientist are now admitting that CO2 is not the "green house gas" danger it was made out to be.

BTW, i have to wonder how much of that CO2 came from all that volcano activity Hawaii's been dealing with?

Years ago, I've read that 25% of all CO2 emissions come from volcanoes...Since then, I've heard that fractures on the ocean floor have increased CO2 emissions dramatically...

You need to stop reading unscientific nonsense.

Quote:
According to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), the world’s volcanoes, both on land and undersea, generate about 200 million tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) annually, while our automotive and industrial activities cause some 24 billion tons of CO2 emissions every year worldwide. Despite the arguments to the contrary, the facts speak for themselves: Greenhouse gas emissions from volcanoes comprise less than one percent of those generated by today’s human endeavors.
