Well, they tell us we went over 400ppm in our atmospheric CO2.
Bill McKibben the rest of the nuts believe if we just get back down to 350ppm, then we’d be okay! Of course, they also believe that CO2 controls our climate.
Well, I think 350ppm is too ambitious. But, in the spirit of compromise, I suggest we give them the climate we had if 70% of their goal was met!
No, no. I mean it Bill. I’ll do my best to get our climate back to the point where 70% of your goal is met. You can trust me. Would that make you happy, Bill?
Well, okay, let’s all pitch in and get our climate back to where it was when CO2 was about 365ppm!
Okay, Bill, we’re done. And, you’re welcome.
I don’t know why those guys act like this is such hard stuff, or make a big deal out of it. I think they’re attention whores. Well, I did my part!
About the graph….. The temp graph is the WoodForTrees Temperature Index (WTI). This is created from the mean of HADCRUT3VGL, GISTEMP, RSS and UAH, offset by their baseline differences. And then trended. I then offset the graph, bringing it up to the same point in time for the CO2 graph. In other words, in 1998, CO2 levels were 365ppm or 70% of wild Bill’s goal of 350ppm. You can play with it here.
