Carbon emissions hit a new record

“A CSIRO atmospheric scientist, Paul Fraser, said the world was now on track to pass the 400 parts per million level for CO2 emissions in under five years.’

The Sydney Morning Herald reports:

GREENHOUSE gases have risen to their highest level since modern humans evolved, and Australian temperatures are now about a degree warmer than they were a century ago, a major review by the CSIRO and the Bureau of Meteorology has found.

The national climate report, to be released today, said Australia’s current climate ”cannot be explained by natural variability alone” and that emissions resulting from human activity were playing an increasingly direct role in shaping temperatures.

Australian researchers were able to identify the ”fingerprint” of the carbon dioxide particles in the atmosphere, by testing the isotopes in CO2 particles, and confirm that the increase came from fossil fuels burnt in power stations and cars…

  1. At least this time they mention the scientists name. But, the difference between 380 ppm and 400 ppm is so miniscule that the only thing the scientist should be concerned about is his job.
    If the levels drop below 200 ppm . . . life as we know in on the planet would cease . . . all life forms contain carbon, the CO2 scam is laughable when 97% of GH gasses is Water vapor or as we usually say Clouds.
