THE Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Thread Pt. 6

Unread postby Tanada » Wed 07 Sep 2016, 08:59:07

Its been over a month since my last update on this thread I have been busy with life and nobody seemed to notice the lack of updates so it appear I was wasting my time anyhow.

Either way the monthly number for August is in,


August 2016: 402.25 ppm
August 2015: 398.93 ppm
I should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, design a building, write, balance accounts, build a wall, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, pitch manure, program a computer, cook, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.

AGW advocates need no acknowledgements of their truthful posts. AGW advocates DO need support, when toxic AGW denier liar whiners oppose them with "no sigh-ants oil, energy & re-pubic-lick-un propaganda PEE-R poop" AND SPECIALLY when racism &/or threats are leveled at AGW advocates.

See, it went down from Sept 2nd to Sept 3rd. That PROVES that is just natural cycles!!!

Just in case, this is sarcasm.

Please do continue to 'waste your time' here, T. Recall that there was a period when none of us had access to these threads at all. And of course we wouldn't want to pressure you, since it's all a labor of love (and doom) anyway.

In any case, here's someone else keeping an eye on that most important of numbers:

It’s Looking Like We’ll Never See Another Month Below 400 ppm CO2 Again

Tanada, to think that you do not provide an irreplaceable service to this site, or that most of us do not appreciate it is wrong.

You are providing facts that aren't debatable, so you may not get a lot of replies beyond ooo, ah, and oh shit.

There are several regular posters I respect enough to check this site out several times a day for the information and insight they provide.

You're one of them Tanada. Please don't get discouraged. :)

Sooo, we're still pretty solidly in the 3+ ppm rise per year range, after years of 2ppm/yr rise.

Yet we are told that emissions are plateauing.

What do we make of these apparently contradictory claims?

Plateauing just means the rate of release is not going up like it was before. We are still releasing a heck of a lot of fossil carbon every minute of every day of every year.

Like discussions of the federal budget, people have a severe disconnect between the meaning of terms like deficit vs debt. Every year we have a budget deficit so every year the debt goes up. Reducing the deficit from X to X-2 percent just means the debt grew a little less rapidly.

For CO2 emissions if we were releasing 16 Billion tons of fossil carbon last year and we release another 16 Billion this year we are on a plateau of release rate, BUT WE STILL ADDED 16 BILLION TONS TO THE ATMOSPHERE!!!

Last year we bottomed out the last few days of September, I wonder when we will hit bottom this year.

Still a lot of green and growing taking place here n NW Ohio, an extended warm period now as we are entering fall could conceivably extend the drop into October. That does happen on occasion.

if emissions are plateauing but co2 levels are still rising , and if that rise is accelerating, then i'd suggest that the sinks are failing
