I remember last year (last May, to be more exact) when there was a huge alarm sounded amongst climate scientists when the carbon dioxide level, “passed a long-feared milestone, scientists reported on Friday, reaching a concentration not seen on the earth for millions of years;” 400 parts per million.

It took millions of years to re-reach 400 parts per million (ppm).  Yesterday, less than a year later, we hit 402 ppm:

The concentration of carbon dioxide, the greenhouse gas that drives climate change, hit 402 parts per million this week — the highest level recorded in at least 800,000 years.

The recordings came from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association’s Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii, which marked another ominous milestone last May when the 400 ppm threshold was crossed for the first time in recorded history.


Man, we’re virtually speeding down the road to destruction.
