CO2 is .04% of the atmosphere. It has been. Everything the human species has done since the ability to measure this has not been able to change the percentage. This is why they use PPM and "tons of emmissions" to scare people.He won't have to worry. Greenland won't have an ice sheet in next 200 years if current conditions exist. His own data shows this. The spike at the end of his graph? That's in decades. Not thousands of years. It's only there the rise is at that steep of slope. And that rise is accelerating. That's what has science concerned.
Data from other disciplines shows same pattern. A spike never seen in the history of core sample and other analysis. That is occurring as we speak.
Science knows it takes earth's bio system to return CO to the earth from the atmosphere about 80 years. What's different today is man's contribution by burning of fossil fuels to where more CO is introduced at a higher rate than the planet's natural cycle rate. This can and will lead to a tipping point. Where massive about of CO (Primarily in the form of methane.) Is released by the thawing of permafrost. This causes runaway greenhouse event. This condition is easily recreated in labs. And confirmed with data modeling.
The good news? As his own graph displays, we still have time. By reducing our contributions in the next couple decades to a point where the CO cycle is stable. That's "Zero net" emissions goal. It's not the elimination. But a reduction of man's contributions by percentage.
This can be achieved. If we stay on same path of energy innovation. Thus returning to my opening statement. We have no choice. And it's over due.
Water vapor is 4%. No one is losing their sh1t about water vapor. They do exactly the same thing in regards to our climate and temperature.
The glaciers are melting, and exposing trees that grew during roman times in Alaska. That's not when dinosaurs roamed the planet. Sometime after Jesus Christ died (AD vs BC) the temp got low enough the snow didn't melt all the way and it buried those trees and made a glacier. Now it is melting. They find evidence of plant life under the glacier in Greenland. It's older. Sometime in the past the planet was warm enough to grow plants on Greenland.
The end of the video sums it up best: we are basing our experiment on a few decades with a starting point of the coldest point in 8000 years.
It is a terribly designed experiment.
