415 ppm: We Are all Part of Exxon’s Unchartered Climate Experiment Now

415 ppm: We Are all Part of Exxon’s Unchartered Climate Experiment Now

Andy Rowell

Earlier this month, we collectively walked into the unknown.

We are all now a living experiment. Never before in human history have carbon dioxide levels reached 415 parts per million.

These levels were last seen maybe some 2.5-5 million years ago, during the Pliocene, but then the earth was much warmer than it is today and it was way before us.

The preceding 600 million years CO2 was at 2600 ppm, seven times the current amount, there was no runaway event, nothing died, today’s level is not unusual, as an average it’s low, if there was such a thing as tipping point, why did it not tip at 2,600ppm.
If CO2 is so bad why is it injected into green houses, and those plastic bags of lettuce, because it’s a life gas, I’m tired of the doom’s day mantras, truth, not consensus, consensus is not science, and 97% certainly isn’t.
Truth. Is it so hard.
