Skip to comments.CO2 levels at 800,000-year high
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.

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.
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.”
I didnt know the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration was that old.
The grass will grow tall this year. Spring is busting out. God’s blessings will be plentiful.
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.
I know this winter was the coldest in Chicago history.
The trees are leafing out right now. I am sure they will enjoy all the plant food.
Supposedly via ice cores.
Green nuts ought to be happy, not sad. CO2 is yummies for all manner of green vegetation.
That’s easy. Co2 monitors. Duh!
See what I did there?
“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.
Put on your Zombie University t-shirt Up Yours Marxists, and don't ask questions.
And what were the CO2 levels 900,000 years ago?
Finally, things are getting back to normal.
Fell from something horrendous? Just in time for the major anthropoid apes?
Holy shamoleans, this sounds hugh and possibly series!
One Mean Gopher?
