World-wide carbon dioxide hits new high: 404 parts-per-million (ppm)
April 21, 2015 10:29 AM

Our inexorable march towards ruining the planet continues:

Weekly carbon dioxide measurements from the pristine air atop Hawaii's Mauna Loa have just topped another predictable yet worrisome milestone: 404 parts per million. By all evidence, we now have the largest amount of CO2 present in Earth's atmosphere for at least the last 800,000 years, and probably several million. The most prevalent of the human-produced greenhouse gases, carbon dioxide has been measured regularly by scientists at Mauna Loa since 1958. The gas is also measured at other sites around the world, but the Mauna Loa dataset is the most widely tracked index of global trends because of its uninterrupted 57-year length.

We. Are. Doomed.

More accurately: billions of humans in less-developed nations are doomed. Most Americans will survive, although our great-grandchildren's standard of living is sure to suffer. First-world problems; undeveloped countries' nightmares.
