150 parts per million

150 parts per million of atmospheric CO2- what's the significance of that number, you may ask?

Plant life shuts down @ 150 ppm. Why is that significant? The animal world, of which we are a part, is in deep shit when the plants die off.

Just think about the pre-industrial levels which were 280 ppm- just 130 ppm above the death threshold. During the glaciation periods it was down to 180 ppm. So close to the annihilation of land animals.

So pardon me if I want to stay away from that level. The planet has had higher levels of atmospheric  CO2 than are currently present and there never was a runaway greenhouse effect.

    Yes, but hysterical climate alarmists don't want to hear this. Wasn't New York city supposed to be flooded by now? :D

    NYC is flooded - by liberals. :)

    They don't realize that their urban heat island effect is the big contributor to the alleged global temperature rise- UHI's skew the readings. Hong Kong is one of the biggest contributors. Someone once suggested that without Hong Kong there wouldn't even be any apparent warming.

    In one article I have read it says there is an ocean turnover cycle in which its CO2 gets brought to the depths of the oceans. That in turn leads to more atmospheric CO2 getting absorbed by them. This is allegedly what caused the ice ages. Before that cycle there was more CO2 in the atmosphere than current levels.

    All interesting, the more person reads about this issue the more he can realize how incredible self regulating Earth's ecosystem is. There are many negative feedback processes involved, if they were not there Earth would long time ago slip into runaway heating or cooling. just look at our neighbors Mars and Venus. Many things help self regulation: weather patterns, ice caps, you mentioned ocean currents, vegetation, soil bacteria, plankton etc. Actually knowledge about this comes from every day science research but it's not promoted for political reasons. General population has no idea what's cooking in the background...

    Alarmism preys upon emotions which kicks up the funding, I guess. The more you push for alarmism the more funding you are bound to get to "prove" it true

    And the kicker is that CO2 only absorbs in 3 different wavelengths- meaning only 8% of was the earth emits. 92% of what the earth emits is invisible to CO2.
