One of the things that has really bugged me about global warming, is the focus on eliminating CO2. It's a trace gas, but very essential to life. Even the IPCC clearly states that it's not the most potent 'greenhouse' gas. It's not even the most plentiful either, nor does it remain in the atmosphere the longest. We are constantly shown these scary production numbers, of how much CO2 humans produce. The CO2 measurements, specially at Mauna Loa, an active volcano, there is a huge rise in ppm readings, to reflect the massive amounts, creating this 'crisis'. The 'warming' is imperceptible, immeasurable, only shows up with a many year average, considerable mathemagic.

There are many ways to tackle a problem, but does it really make any sense to focus on the least threatening aspect of a crisis, when there are only a few centuries left, before we all die horribly? There are claims of massive amounts of CO2 absorbed by the oceans, set to be released, if the global temperature rises too far. We already passed that milestone, couple times... Well, actually, every year, since the polar ice melts, and tropical waters get pretty warm. Living in Florida, I know from personal experience, just how much the water warms each year. Should there be a massive release of ocean CO2 every year? Shouldn't the CO2 readings at Mauna Loa monitoring station spike, off the chart recorder, every summer?

Once CO2 gets into the carbon cycle the concentration level lasts for hundreds to a thousand years. Methane lasts for a decade or 2 and is decomposed by the sun into CO2 and water i think. Water vapor lasts for maybe a week and then rains down only to evaporate and then rain down again.
co2 being the longest lasting is a big problem because the concentration goes up by a large percentage even though the concentration remains small (trace gas). That increase in % concentration is significant as far as climate change is concerned.

Need to read up on the carbon cycle a bit more, most of the carbon, isn't in the CO2 form. Has nothing to do with the atmosphere, for hundreds of years... Might be the longest cycle, but has the least to do with global warming.

The carbon spoken of here (the carbon that hasn't entered the carbon cycle) eventually will enter the carbon cycle in geologic time. The carbon that hadn't entered the carbon cycle a long time ago (geologic time) is now entering the carbon cycle. Sometimes you have to think in terms of geologic time. Sometimes even cosmologic time but maybe not for climate change. Learning cosmologic time helps one understand geologic time.

Wouldn't it also be great if they were honest and showed "the other half of the equation"? Wouldn't it be great if we were also shown the countless number of plants on the planet, including trees, all bushes, grasses, all algae and seaweed in the ocean, etc., that are the equivalent of ravenous animals that greedily eat up all CO2 that comes their way? Wouldn't it be great if we were given an accurate picture of the dangerously low levels of atmospheric CO2 we have for sustaining the plant life upon which we and all other life depend? Wouldn't it be great if we were told the truth on a regular basis that higher atmospheric CO2 levels would be great as opposed to regular attempts to deceive us into believing that there is somehow too much atmospheric CO2? Wouldn't some honesty and accuracy be great?

I notice now that the CO2 is directly doing the climate change.We have left out the creating warming that will change the climate.Go back and look at the 3 phases to the claim.

There is a lot of carbon on this planet, that's been in the ground for possibly millions of years. Coal is nearly pure carbon, and needs burning (badly) to enter the carbon cycle. Diamonds are pure carbon, probably never enters the carbon cycle that burns the earth. Two extreme examples, but there are also lots of organic examples as well. About 2.4 million humans die in America every year. Not sure how many choose the box and a plot option, or the burn and urn option. But mankind has been stuffing dead people in the ground. Some of them get dug up thousands of years later, still containing carbon. Here in Florida, we get parts of centuries old shipwrecks wash up on the beaches. Surprising, considering the climate models had them under 3 feet of water, a decade ago...

You are misinformed thinking that CO2 in the atmosphere is going to be there a long time. Even the annual California wildfires don't return all the carbon those trees removed from the atmosphere. There is a considerable amount of charcoal all over the place. Most people have change to gas for their backyard BBQ needs.

I don't it's any mistake, that they barely touch on just ho much CO2 this planet consumes. Sort of negates a lot of the 'massive' quantities we produce.

Yes! The people bitching about an overpopulated planet and coming food shortages are the same clods advocating for carbon free, which will ensure the shortages/starvation.

It's pure evil.

Define 'climate change'.


No argument presented. Random numbers used as data. Denial of science. Denial of mathematics. Void arguments. Buzzwords.

You sound just like Bernie Sanders except that you have a different agenda.
