Now That CO2 Has Passed 400ppm, We Should All Stockpile Cyanide Or Something

Because, you know, doom (even though that 400ppm thing didn’t happen the other week) (via Tom Nelson)

(Spanner Films) You’ve probably heard the appalling news that, for the first time in human history, the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has just passed 400 parts per million. (Eh? Scientific America’s explanation here).  It’s been 2.5 million years since CO2 was last at this level – at which point, temperatures were 2 to 3 degrees C higher, the Arctic was ice-free, global weather patterns were completely different, sea levels were up to 40 metres higher and humans did not live on the planet.

Mankind was around 2.5 million years ago. I do find it weird that it was a lot warmer despite the same CO2 concentration: might there have been something else driving the climate, like, oh, I don’t know, the nuclear furnace in the sky?

Which means that we are heading for an even worse scenario than the one we depicted in The Age of Stupid: Africa uninhabitable, continental Europe mostly desert, Australia’s agricultural system destroyed, hundreds of major cities underwater, hundreds of millions of people dead and many more on the move. Possibly within my lifetime (born 1972, hoping to live to 2062), but almost certainly within my daughter Eva’s (born 2012, hoping to live to 2102).

Hysteria much? I’m going to stop there and go to the ultimate excerpt, as there is just way, way too much unhingedness to post it all. Make sure to read it, as it ends with

Should we stockpile cyanide? You think I’m exaggerating, but a close friend of mine, who has four children, said she plans to kill herself and them when it comes to it.

    The blog – spanner films – that this article came from is a real eye-opener in the latest ‘world’s gonna end’ crowd. Read it at your own peril. Not once does ANYONE there notice that none of the things they predicted would happen – these last oh, forty-five years – have happened. No cities underwater. No European deserts. No mass extinctions. No food riots. No starvation of millions. No wars over climate…

    It occurs to me that a lot of the world’s problems would resolve themselves if the continent of Africa were uninhabitable. It also occurs to me that there have probably been more than a few fundamentalist Christians who have had the government try to take their children away from them for much less threatening statements than “I’m going to poison my children if the temperature increases.”

  3. Yeah, I made the mistake of looking through the blog and figured it made Alex Jones’ sites look almost rational.

    Warmists are always calling for population reduction, particularly in 3rd world nations. It’s almost like they hate Black people.
