CO2 To Hit 400ppm And We Are All Going To Die (Again)

atmospheric_co2

There is a chance that levels of atmospheric CO2 could exceed 400 ppm next month, according to readings from the US government’s Earth Systems Research laboratory in Mauna Loa, Hawaii.

So far this year hourly readings of 400 ppm have been recorded 6 times in the high Arctic, with such a symbolically important event about to happen the usual Green suspects have been begun wailing, and yes you guessed correctly, we are all going to die again.

In a wonderfully self-defeating story in the UK Guardian, Green evangelist John Vidal has heeded the call for CO2 hysteria:

The concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has reached 399.72 parts per million (ppm) and is likely to pass the symbolically important 400ppm level for the first time in the next few days.

Symbolically important, not scientifically important, just another natural event to be grabbed by the Green propaganda machine as further proof of humanity causing its own destruction.

Having largely rendered the story impotent with his opening paragraph Vidal then finishes in true Green style by continuing to make his hole deeper:

The last time CO2 levels were so high was probably in the Pliocene epoch, between 3.2m and 5m years ago, when Earth’s climate was much warmer than today.

The Pliocene epoch, that would be well before the industrial revolution then, and CO2 levels were higher than today, without the hand of man controlling the climate, now that does not match the Green narrative either.

So really all this story is about, is Greens crying wolf again about an event that has symbolism to just them, which really has been par for the course for the last 20 years or so.

  1. Back to the levels of the ’40s then? Appropriate, really, considering we’re on a war footing against the legions of warmists.

  2. Will the warmists explain why CO2 levels were so high in the Pliocene epoch.I believe that mankind had not evolved then. If the world survived those levels before, there is no reason to suppose it will not survive now.

  3. Ahh, but the greenies will say that the world survived with such high CO2 levels in the past, but man won’t.

    Though they are wrong.

    We won’t suffocate. We won’t die of heat stroke. Nor of freezing. Nor will we drown. We just have to change some of behaviours a tiny little bit. Like maybe not build on flood plains or get our food from different places, but globalisation has already solved all this for us.

    The only thing you can prove to a fool is his own death and you folks sure are a pack of fools.

  5. You have to admit though, 400 parts per million sounds scarier than 0.04%. And the goal is, after all to scare people.
