CO2 Passes 400ppm, Global Climate Shrug Shoulders

Warmists have been anticipating CO2 hitting the CO2 mark with glee, much like they anticipated death milestones during the Iraq war (well, at least while Bush was president), and now they get their wish

(NY Times) The level of the most important heat-trapping gas in the atmosphere, carbon dioxide, has passed a long-feared milestone, scientists reported Friday, reaching a concentration not seen on the earth for millions of years.

Yet, the global temperature is stagnant, and it only rose a miniscule .28F since 1990 and .14F since 1997.

The best available evidence suggests the amount of the gas in the air has not been this high for at least three million years, before humans evolved, and scientists believe the rise portends large changes in the climate and the level of the sea.

Justin Gillis means the best water pool scrying, because over 80% of the lower 48 has been below average during 2013. Hurricane activity has been below average for years. Tornado activity is way below average. Antarctica’s temps have been flatlined or dropping. This spring has been the coldest on record (so far). Europe saw it’s 4th harsh winter out of the last 5. Alaska’s average temp has dropped 2.4F over the last 10 years. Lots of instances of snow in the Middle East.

“It symbolizes that so far we have failed miserably in tackling this problem,” said Pieter P. Tans, who runs the monitoring program at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration that reported the new reading.

Virtually every automobile ride, every plane trip and, in most places, every flip of a light switch adds carbon dioxide to the air, and relatively little money is being spent to find and deploy alternative technologies.

And Warmists still haven’t given up their own fossil fueled vehicles. Kyoto was a failure. Carbon markets are at junk bond status.

Warmists have been proclaiming doom since 1988. Before that, people, including those at the NY Times, were proclaiming doom from a coming ice age. Before that, from warmth. And cooling. And warmth. This goes back to the late 1800’s, when newspapers were able to do mass printings. So far, no doom, and the global climate is failing to respond to the Warmist’s computer models.

If you want to have fun, head over to the Memeorandum link, then to the liberal sites listed, and ask them why they haven’t given up their own fossil fueled vehicles.

    I know that when the spike of 400ppm CO2 on the high mountain of Hawaii, our world rocked. I felt it. It was like a shock to the system. The world stood still because of that one CO2 monitoring station.

    I’m sorry, but I have a question. If CO2 was at 400ppm once before – suggesting it was before people arrived – then who were driving all those SUV’s and airplanes? Did dinosaurs only look big because they were flying airplanes?

    Oh, one more question, since when are man’s actions , and only HIS actions, the only source of CO2?

  2. Why are you asking all these questions? You must like dirty air and water and want to kill billions of humans and cause the 6th mass extinction. I bet you believe in God and creationism, and hate the Navy which believes in climate change (channels John)
