The Most Powerful Molecule In The World

Ten years ago, experts said a one part per ten thousand increase in atmospheric CO2 over the past century was causing Antarctic sea ice to grow.

Now they say a one part per ten thousand increase in atmospheric CO2 over the past century is causing Antarctic sea ice to shrink. Meteorologist/Science Writer Scott Sutherland also believes February is winter in Antarctica.

    It’s also very intelligent, as it can pick and chose when it will show up or leave.

    CO2 is pure evil :
    – it causes floods, fires and mega-droughts,
    – it causes snow storms and lack of snow,
    – it causes cold snaps and heatwaves,
    – it causes more hurricanes, and hurricanes’ droughts,
    – it may even cause ice ages and … the Earth explosion with fire stones ejected into space :

    – and last but not least, it makes also most meteorologists dumber than the dumbest among them and climate crooks more fraudulent than ever.

      Your a NUT! CO2 is the lifes breath for every type of plant and tree on this planet! You never studied real environmental science! During the Jurassic era this planet had 10x the CO2 in the atmosphere and Earth survived just fine! The volcanic activity releases CO and CO2 during an erruption! Tens of thousands of times the amounts man has ever released! Study some real science silly!

        I think you missed that Petit_Barde’s comments were dripping with sarcasm.

        • Disillusioned says:

          Bingo. If a reader could not divine the tongue-in-cheek from the bullet points – which said CO2 causes all types of bad weather from mega-droughts to floods, from cold snaps to heatwaves – then the last sentence was the clincher:

          – and last but not least, it makes also most meteorologists dumber than the dumbest among them and climate crooks more fraudulent than ever.

    Congratulations on your blog. Do you know where to get historical data on temperatures, rain and wind in Ajaccio and the island of Corsica? An event occurred on Thursday, not predicted by the French meteorological service, described by the press as ‘unprecedented’

    I don’t understand why you just don’t write 1/10,000 instead of these ambiguous phrases (like parts per ten thousand or mole fraction as you have in other articles) that laypeople stumble over and are generally not used by scientists. Your point comes across better when you speak plain English, or in this case, plain numbers. Just a thought.

    • Timo, not that one says:

      The best was when Tony drew a graph of the increase in CO2 in the atmosphere over the last 120 years or so, using a graph that had the X axis from zero to one million. There was a horizontal line, right on the bottom of the graph.
      It did not look scary at all.

    • Conrad Ziefle says:

      “parts per ten thousand and mole fraction” may be cryptic to some, but they are not ambiguous and the latter has scientific meaning and is used to be scientifically accurate. Possibly, a layman’s summary may sometimes be in order, but what I like about this site is that the data is there, which is difficult for fact-checkers to refute.

  5. Conrad Ziefle says:

    Part of the problem is that people major in climatology and then realize that it takes their entire lifetime for anything of climatic significance to develop, so they fudge and start claiming weather events have climatic implications. Either that, or in frustration, they delve into shamanism.

    February? He published that in March?
