I posted that data 9 days ago, lets say we try and keep up shall we?

NATURE is reporting that China's CO2 emissions went up significantly in 2017....and since China is the largest producer of CO2 in the world global CO2 emissions are projected to be up 2% in 2017.

[url=https://www.nature.com/news/world-s-carbon-emissions-set-to-spike-by-2%-in-2017-1.22995]world-s-carbon-emissions-set-to-spike-by-2-in-2017[/url]

Thats a pretty big increase in CO2 emissions for just one year!

Cheers!

Looks like the eruption of Mount Mayon in the Philippines @ Jan. 22-23 bumped up the CO2 a bit, but that seems unlikely to have affected readings except for locally in the region.

As you can see from the yearly chart in 2017 the 'pause' effect I first pointed out several years ago between January and February remained in effect last year. Whether 2018 will continue the trend pattern remains to be seen.

I am not an expert but it seems to me that there is a summer in the south hemisphere.
And this explains why you can see a pause during the months of january and february.
If the south hemisphere had more weight it would be a decrease in CO2 levels as this is the case for the months of July and August.

While that is true as far as it goes if you look through the data set going back to the 1950's the pause effect is only prominent for the last few years. If the effect were as solid as implied in your post it should be prominent in almost every year, not just the last handful of years.

Huge carbon releases detected from warming soil in the Arctic

global-warmings-frozen-giant

Its estimated warming soil at high latitudes is currently releasing enough carbon to equal all the carbon released by the United States. That means even if we had a real treaty to reduce anthropogenic CO2 emissions instead of the phony Paris Accords, CO2 would continue to build up in the atmosphere anyway due to large amount of warming we have already seen at high latitudes and its effects on Arctic soils.

Cheers!

Good (= horrific) catch, P.

From the article:

...Crowther from the Netherlands Institute of Ecology and his colleagues combined data from 49 experiments across North America, Europe and Asia where scientists were artificially warming the soil. By comparing carbon content in the top 4 inches at warmed and unwarmed plots, the researchers could get a sense of how much carbon the different sites would lose or gain due to rising global temperatures.

Crowther expected to see some carbon loss from northern sites, but he thought that increased plant growth in warmer regions would balance it out.

Instead, he found that the top few inches of soil across the globe was releasing an estimated 1 to 1.5 billion metric tons of carbon per year, nearly all of it from Arctic and sub-Arctic soils.

At expected rates of global warming, that will mean 55 billion tons of carbon by the year 2050, about 12 to 17 percent of what researchers expect human activities to emit over the same period.

"We were amazed -- astonished -- to find not only that carbon loss is happening in certain areas, but it's a huge amount of soil carbon," said Crowther, who is a global change ecologist at ETH Zurich. "It's equivalent to having another industrialized United States on the world."

Shocking though those findings are, they doubtless underestimate the true magnitude of soil emissions, said Crowther. That's because the study ignored all soil deeper than 4 inches.
