A spike in the amount of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere between 2001 and 2003 appears to be a temporary phenomenon and apparently does not indicate a quickening build-up of the gas in the atmosphere, according to an analysis by NOAA climate experts. Carbon dioxide (CO2) is released into the atmosphere by the burning of wood, coal, oil and gas. Increases in the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere are of special interest to scientists because carbon dioxide is a significant heat-trapping greenhouse gas.

The problem is simple. The horrible economy due to Bush's mismanagement has reduced our industrial base to the point where it cannot produce.
Laying off all the people caused factories to close and this reduced the amout of fuel used and hence the emissions went down. Plus, Bush's dishonest Middle East policies resulted in higher fuel costs, reducing consumption, and this reduced the CO2 levels.
So the lower CO2 levels are Bush's fault.
(Dont't get excited, I'm trying to think Liberal)
[Atmospheric CO2 levels have increased from about 315 ppm in 1958 to 378 ppm at the end of 2004, which means human activities have increased the concentration of atmospheric CO2 by 100 ppm or 36 percent.]
So 378 - 315 = 100 ?
Or are they interpolating this back to the beginning of the industrial revolution.
I am not much of a fiction reader but my son read it and recommended it to me. I had a hard time putting it down. I do believe, though, that it showed ELF as it should be shown.
Demrats don't like to hear this stuff because global warming is just one of the ways they want to lead us to socialism
I'll sleep soundly tonight...
They just don’t know what they just don’t know. If they admit that the money goes away.
This has been said for years but Algore and the IPCC ignored it.
