No Big Change In CO2 Levels

Has modern, Industrial Man pumped the atmosphere full of CO2 like never before? Evidently not. As documented in a fascinating report by Dr. Tim Ball [here], it appears that CO2 levels in the Industrial Age are not much different than those of pre-industrial eras.

Could it be that Pre-Industrial Man burned just as much fuel has his modern counterpart? Or that Pre-Columbian Man fired so much of the non-European landscape so frequently that CO2 was just as prevalent in the atmosphere throughout the Holocene as it is today? Could it even be that long before any Man walked the planet, natural CO2 concentrations were many times what we experience currently?

Short answer: you betcha. CO2 is not particularly thick today. In fact, most plants are CO2-deficient because they evolved when there was much more of the Basic Nutrient of Life floating around in the air.

Are we being seriously conned by the likes of Al Gore, B.H. Obama, and the rest of the cap-and-trade-away-the-economy, global warming hysterical alarmist crowd? Short answer: well duh! What did you think? Did you just fall off the turnip truck?

Please read and enjoy Pre-industrial CO2 levels were about the same as today — How and why we are told otherwise [here] by Dr. Tim Ball, PhD climatologist, borrowed from the Canada Free Press, December 10, 2008. An excerpt:

How many failed predictions, discredited assumptions and evidence of incorrect data are required before an idea loses credibility? CO2 is not causing warming or climate change. It is not a toxic substance or a pollutant. Despite this President Elect Obama met with Al Gore on December 9 no doubt to plan a climate change strategy based on these problems. They make any plan to reduce CO2 completely unnecessary.

Proponents of human induced warming and climate change told us that an increase in CO2 precedes and causes temperature increases. They were wrong. They told us the late 20th century was the warmest on record. They were wrong. They told us, using the infamous “hockey stick” graph, the Medieval Warm Period (MWP) did not exist. They were wrong. They told us global temperatures would increase through 2008 as CO2 increased. They were wrong. They told us Arctic ice would continue to decrease in area through 2008. They were wrong. They told us October 2008 was the second warmest on record. They were wrong. They told us 1998 was the warmest year on record in the US. They were wrong it was 1934. They told us current atmospheric levels of CO2 are the highest on record. They are wrong. They told us pre-industrial atmospheric levels of CO2 were approximately 100 parts per million (ppm) lower than the present 385 ppm. They are wrong. This last is critical because the claim is basic to the argument that humans are causing warming and climate change by increasing the levels of atmospheric CO2 and have throughout the Industrial era. In fact, pre-industrial CO2 levels were about the same as today…
