The amount of climate-warming carbon dioxide in the atmosphere topped 400 parts per million at a key observing station in Hawaii for the first time since measurement began in 1958, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said on Friday.

Russell Roberts‘s insight:

An update on the story I posted a few days ago.  Readings like this haven’t been recorded since the Pleistocene Era (2.8 million to 11,700 years ago). ‘Looks like we’re getting real toasty.  Aloha, Russ

  1. The natural cycle of global warming…but we will probably survive. We have air conditioning – oh, wait a minute….

    1. I believe all this “global warming” is part of a long-term natural cycle. Of course, pollution, volcanoes, and animal-generated methane (ala cows, sheep, and other farm and ranch-centered animals) generate their own amount of carbon dioxide. Even if we were to become squeeky clean in an industrial sense, the trend to higher carbon dioxide levels would continue. Vegetation and the ocean can only absorb so much over time. The future looks wet (as in flooding), hot, and geologically unstable. Man’s contribution only accelerates the process further. Heck, Las Vegas could become the largest west port city in a few hundred years. Thanks for your input…good, as always. Russ
