    400

    Carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere have reached 400 PPM.

    Is it time to sound the warning siren for our planet?

    According to the Law Of Big Round Scary Looking Numbers, the increase in AGM from 399 to 400 ppm is somehere around 1,000% greater than that of 400-501 as measured in NS (pronounced "neus". Official term: "News Stories")

    Was 2012 the 15th or 16th year in a row temperatures failed to rise according to predictions?

    Re: 400

    I would have answered I don't know, but if we are to assume ice core samples and other ways scientists measure historical atmospheric CO2 are accurate, then I do sincerely wonder what environmental consequences there could be from such an upswing in atmospheric and oceanic CO2.

    I'm actually more concerned about Al Gore polluting the environment and making $millions off the gullible.

    Interesting how C02 levels have risen over the last 15 years but temp has not.

    I blame the butterflies. Every time one of those flaps its wings, something bad happens somewhere.

    Isn't this getting kind of old? Global temperatures haven't gone up significantly for the past 15 or so years. Could you at least wait until there's actually a problem?

    Ice caps melting faster than normal is not a problem?

    Superstorms are not a problem.

    The long droughts in the Midwest and the monster wildfires are not a problem?
