Greenhouse gases hit record high
BBC News [UK], by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 11/20/2012 10:21:15 AM

Greenhouse gases in the atmosphere hit a new record high in 2011, the World Meteorological Organization has said. In its annual Greenhouse Gas Bulletin released on Tuesday, the organisation said that carbon dioxide levels reached 391 parts per million in 2011. The report estimates that carbon dioxide accounts for 85% of the "radiative forcing" that leads to global temperature rises. Other potent greenhouse gases such as methane also reached record highs. The carbon dioxide levels appear to have been rising at a level of two parts per million each year for the last 10 years - with the latest measure

This is such utter BS.
CO2 represents about 2% of the atmoshere.
And virtually all of that CO2 is naturally occurring, mainly from decay of organic matter and plants, but also from volcanoes and respiration of animal life.
Man-made CO2 from combustion of coal, oil, petrochemicals, etc.represents one one-hundredth (1/100) of that CO2--or 0.2% of the atmosphere.
So, we are talking about tiny, tiny quantities of man-made CO2 as compared to the atmosphere. The major greenhouse gas is water vapor, NOT CO2.
The World Meteorological Organization is comprised of liars or ignoramuses--or both.

Actually #2, 391 ppm comes to an astounding .0391% of all atmospheric gases.

Or to put it in a little more understandable perpsective, it would be a grand total of 39 people in a crowd of 100,000 who are watching a bowl game in a giant football stadium.

But you are right in that human industrial activity is responsible for only a small amount of that, somewhere in the single digits of the whole.

To say that human produce CO2 has any measurable effect on global temperatures is a totally bogus and unsustainable assumption.

The parade of lies will continue nearly unabated until they get what they want. . . control over the dwindling masses. The masses will be dwindling because that is another major desire of the annointed ones. How else could they be considered good stewards of the human race unless they cull the herd every now and again.

And the more astonishing fact is that only CO2 emissions from the US causes 100% of the problems.

The rest of the world´s CO2 emissions, probably 90% now, will be reduced someday. Real soon. For they are good people.

Unfortunatly you can buy, for a very modest price, an extremely accurate hand held meter that can tell you how much CO2 is in the air. I have one in my car...just in case I run into global warming zealots. Hillarity ensues. Worth every penny I paid for it.

Of course when I mentioned running into GW zealots I did not mean actually running them over. I have a firm rule of not running over people in my car...actually, in the case of global warming zealots it´s more like a guideline.

Women’s specialty clothing chain Coldwater Creek filed for bankruptcy on Friday and said it will close all of its stores around the country, including 11 in Minnesota. The Sandpoint, Idaho-based company plans to time its liquidation sales to coincide with the traditionally busy Mother’s Day weekend. Coldwater Creek is the latest retailer to seek protection from creditors as consumers continue to manage their household budgets tightly and hold back on discretionary spending. Others to file for bankruptcy include discount chain Loehmann’s, trendy retailer Dots and the plus-sized Ashley Stewart Holdings.

Of the plans that states have hatched for the Affordable Care Act, none has been bolder than that of Vermont, which wants to implement a single-payer health-care system, along the lines of what you might find in Britain or Canada. One government-operated system will cover all 620,000 of Vermont’s citizens. The hope is that such a system will allow Vermont to get costs down closer to Canada’s, as well as improve health by coordinating care and ensuring universal coverage. Just two small issues need to be resolved before the state gets to all systems go: First, it needs the federal

LONDON - NATO says tens of thousands of Russian troops are massed on the border with Ukraine for a potential invasion, yet Western states still lack a strategy to stop Moscow from intervening in its former Soviet neighbors. (Snip) Ultimately, Moscow´s commitment to rebuild the former USSR as its own unilateral sphere of influence may outstrip the determination of Washington and its European allies to stop it. Experts say Moscow has been infiltrating its neighbors ever more deeply, building its influence amongst security forces, government officials and politicians. That, some say, allows it to stir up instability in locations like

The San Francisco 49ers said they are aware of a TMZ report saying quarterback Colin Kaepernick is being investigated for an incident in Miami and are gathering facts on the incident. TMZ reported Thursday that police are in the beginning stages of investigating an alleged incident which TMZ said happened at the Viceroy Hotel in Miami earlier this month. The story said the police were investigating for "possible sexual assault," but Bay Area News Group crime reporter Natalie Neysa Alund wrote that the incident is not being investigated as a sexual assault. No charges have been filed at this point.

Two new surveys clearly show that the number of people who lack health insurance in the United States has dropped — but largely not because people have enrolled in Obamacare exchanges. (Snip) What Gallup doesn´t dive into is where people are gaining insurance. That´s where the new survey from the RAND Corporation comes in. Interestingly, RAND discovered that the vast majority of new insurance coverage came not from enrollments in the Obamacare exchanges, as you might expect. Instead, it was heavily from expansions of coverage by employers and from the expansion of Medicaid — a component of the Affordable Care

While the purpose of Tuesday’s hearing was to pick through the State Department’s budget, it was Kerry’s record that came under scrutiny as his old colleagues on the committee accused him of taking on too many responsibilities with too few results. “I think you’re about to hit the trifecta,” Sen.

Offering a first glimpse of the health care needs of Americans who bought coverage through federal and state marketplaces, an analysis of the first two months of claims data shows the new enrollees are more likely to use expensive specialty drugs to treat conditions like HIV/AIDS and hepatitis C than those with job-based insurance. The sample of claims data—considered a preliminary look at whether new enrollees are sicker-than-average—also found that prescriptions for treating pain, seizures, and depression are also proportionally higher in exchange plans, according to Express Scripts, one of the nation’s largest pharmacy benefit management companies.

The poll found that voters in the so-called "Rising American Electorate" — unmarried women, minorities, and younger voters — are much less likely to vote this year than in 2012. The disparity is key.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators.

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.
