CO2 levels at 800,000-year high
Haaretz ^ | April 13, 2014 21:11 GMT | Haaretz

Posted on 04/13/2014 2:25:27 PM PDT by Up Yours Marxists

For two consecutive days last week, the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the earth's atmosphere exceeded 402 parts per million (ppm,) higher than at any time in at least the past 800,000 years, according to the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Carbon dioxide levels tend to peak in May, which means that they are likely to rise even more. According to an article in Mashable, a news and tech website, the latest figures "put humans into uncharted territory."

Just last month, the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change released a damning report that illustrated the growing dangers of global warming. The panel focused on carbon dioxide emissions and warned about the dangers of inaction.

Man the lifeboats!!!!

OK, here's a question for all you climate Freepers. How exactly does one measure global co2 and compare it to 800,000 past year levels?

Those pesky volcanoes! We have to cap them off somehow. Or toss some progressives down the holes. Might just make them burp and put out the fire since their souls are so cold.

I didnt know the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration was that old.

Tree rings, ice core samples, sedimentary rocks, peat bog samples?

So it happened 800K years ago? And then when before?

Lets look at this and tell me how often it has happened over the life of the planet.

Climate fascists need to fill the God-sized hole in their lives, so they fill it with a Big Problem(tm) they can orient their lives around and focus on to distract them from God.

It could be anything; doesn’t have to be climate.

For me, it’s hobbits with rings.

Supposedly via ice cores.

“Tree rings, ice core samples, sedimentary rocks, peat bog samples?”

You mean they have adequate samples from every region for every one of the last 800,000 years?

With that kind of info you’d think they’d be better at predicting things like tsunamis, ice caps, and the next sightings of Bigfoot and Nessie.

Who says they measured? I suspect they just wrote numbers down that they liked. Kinda handy go go along with the upcoming elections and the UN global warming push.

They can get air bubbles trapped in ice cores. They can date the ice cores very very accurately. So they measure the carbon dioxide in a section of ice and then date the section to get the carbon dioxide in the air from x thousand years ago. that number varies over time.

They can do some extension by overlapping tree ring records from fossil trees to that of contemporary trees. Still you’d be talking about a several hundred kilometer radius tree!

The plants are loving it, and the temperature has flat-lined for 17+ years at levels well below those of the Medieval Warm Period.

Good info. Thanks for explaining.

So, if it’s “accurate”, NOAA has admitted we haven’t been this high since 798,000 b.c. Armageddon has lasted over 800,000 years!

I would imagine ice cores but then again how can you really determine the accuracy of something like that really?

The left will do and say whatever it takes to push the global warming for profit crap down our throats even if it means publishing false scientific report findings to every well progressive / liberal website online (which is exactly what they are probably doing because the left never verifies or confirms information that bolsters their cause for accuracy)

They say they can, but ...

I bought a decorative box, made of a pioneer-era Bristlecone fence post.

I counted the rings (about 150), and googled up tree ring stuff, thinking I could fit my rings into the ‘master’ scheme.

There was a log of judgement calls on the individual tree ring classifications, in my opinion. So much so that I quit the quest.

They're using ice cores to determine past levels of CO2, but I have no idea how they can make an accurate measurement of world-wide CO2 levels at the present time.

I don't see how it would be possible to shoot straight up like that..

No, and even if "they" did, the lying Global Warming whores would ignore it...but REAL scientist do have that kind of information. The facts are completely different from the GW narratives.

And by "real scientists" I'm referring to those not being paid by government grants to manufacture "facts" for the foundation of a political agenda.

Most of the CO2 is "sequestered" in the oceans, sea shells are constructed primarily of Calcium Carbonate and provide yet another source of CO2 data.

One fact buried by the GW whores is that higher atmospheric CO2 levels are caused by a rise in the temperature of sea water, not the other way around. The warmer water can hold less dissolved CO2 than colder water. So, a rise in CO2 levels FOLLOWS a rise in global temperature.

We haven't had any "global warming" in over a decade.

How exactly does one measure global co2 and compare it to 800,000 past year levels?

Every measurement has an uncertainty spread attached to it. I'm guessing that the uncertainty spread here is very high.

For example, suppose that the CO2 measurement for 400,000 years ago (!) was 50 ppm. And suppose the spread was plus or minus 20 ppm. Then the actual value could be as low as 30 ppm or as high as 70 ppm.

I'd put little stake in numbers such as those.

Later and later Spring the past 8 years or so, with trees just leafing out and oaks blooming-that used to happen the last week of February to the 2nd week of March. Temperatures down to near freezing tomorrow night, yeah I’m sure the heat from that CO2 will kill us all soon...

And who, exactly do these lunatics think “saved” the climate 800,000 years ago? Tribes of Homo Habilis or Australopithecus? They certainly didn’t die out, either, so I don’t think the sky is falling...

ftemperatures down to freezing tomorrow night
