March Sees CO2 At Over 400ppm For Month, World Doesn’t End

NOAA breathlessly reports

Greenhouse gas benchmark reached
Global carbon dioxide concentrations surpass 400 parts per million for the first month since measurements began

For the first time since we began tracking carbon dioxide in the global atmosphere, the monthly global average concentration of this greenhouse gas surpassed 400 parts per million in March 2015, according to NOAA’s latest results.

“It was only a matter of time that we would average 400 parts per million globally,” said Pieter Tans, lead scientist of NOAA’s Global Greenhouse Gas Reference Network. “We first reported 400 ppm when all of our Arctic sites reached that value in the spring of 2012. In 2013 the record at NOAA’s Mauna Loa Observatory first crossed the 400 ppm threshold. Reaching 400 parts per million as a global average is a significant milestone.

“This marks the fact that humans burning fossil fuels have caused global carbon dioxide concentrations to rise more than 120 parts per million since pre-industrial times,” added Tans. “Half of that rise has occurred since 1980.”

Huh. Well, that’s interesting.

(UK Guardian) Dr Ed Hawkins, a climate scientist at the University of Reading told the Guardian: “This event is a milestone on a road to unprecedented climate change for the human race. The last time the Earth had this much carbon dioxide in the atmosphere was more than a million years ago, when modern humans hadn’t even evolved yet.

“Reaching 400ppm doesn’t mean much in itself, but the steady increase in atmospheric greenhouse gases should serve as a stark reminder of the task facing politicians as they sit down in Paris later this year.”

So, it’s happened before, and, oh, BTW, it really is meaningless other than as a political talking point. Of course, Warmists are hyperventilating, but, hey, what about this?

Global temperature update: no warming for 18 years 5 months

By Christopher Monckton of Brenchley

Since December 1996 there has been no global warming at all (Fig. 1). This month’s RSS temperature – still unaffected by the most persistent el Niño conditions of the current weak cycle – shows a new record length for the Pause: 18 years 5 months.

The result, as always, comes with a warning that the temperature increase that usually accompanies an el Niño may come through after a lag of four or five months. If, on the other hand, la Niña conditions begin to cool the oceans in time, there could be a lengthening of the Pause just in time for the Paris world-government summit in December 2015.

I’ve written it before and I’ll write it again: the pause in no way invalidates that the Earth is currently in a Holocene warm period, and doesn’t mean that warming will not restart. This pattern has happened multiple times during the Modern Warm Period, and, if we had actual measured data from the previous Holocene warm periods, would most likely have similar patterns. What it does show is that the political talking points about doom from CO2 are overblown, especially when we consider that 95% of the computer models have failed, in terms of them predicting that temperatures would continue to go up up up, and they haven’t.

There’s no doubt that Mankind has an effect on the climate, but, it is small. If CO2 was that dangerous, Cult Of Climastrology members would be putting their beliefs into practice in their own lives, wouldn’t you think? Especially not taking thousands of fossil fueled flights, particularly with so many private jets, to the lovely vacation spot of Paris, France, right?

    Teach please remember that the RSS data is NOT surface temp data . It is made from satalites and U.S. Not considered as accurate as the other 3 data sets which use thermometers
    Also please remember that your “Lord” Monckton is also selling cancer cures
    The Sun is now at its finest and coolest in 100 years but the temps keep going up and total planet ice keeps going down and our military and all world scientific organizations have determined it to be AGW
    The only scientists that disputes yhst are bought and paid gif by the fossil fuel industry
    Every major religion also recognizes AGW

    Really? That is not what we have heard. Now that we have reached 400PPM, watch for the 400PPM to be downplayed.
    The Doom and gloom theashold may soon be increased to a higher amount.

    “The Doom and gloom theashold may soon be increased to a higher amount.”

    You’ve got that right. Every single prediction the global scaremongers have given us has been proven wrong.

    Time to fudge more data.

    You’re daft. There is no pause. I assume the reason you refuse to answer my question about your use of the RSS modeled upper atmosphere temperature pimped by Load Monckton of Bitchley, is because you have no answer other than that the results suit your bias.

    What does 400 ppm mean? It’s 42% higher than the preindustrial period. It’s the highest level in human history. It’s causing warming. And there is no reason to believe it will fall any time soon, or at all, if ignorant people like you have their way.

    Besides your willful ignorance, that you work hard at misleading others is reprehensible.

    But it’s par for the course for those that worship a make-believe deity.

    Teach do you dispute the fact that last year was the warmest ever on the surface of the planet ? Why isn’t this shown by your Lord?

    Every time these two (little jeffy and retarded johnny) post their comments here, they make their own biases and irrationality even more obvious to the average person.
    Which is why we should always encourage little jeffy and retarded johnny to post here as much as possible!

    You’re right. I am biased. For truth.
