800K Years Ago

Say, did you know the last time CO2 levels were this high was 800K years ago?

That’s quite a stat, ain’t it?

And it must be true because ABC News says so.

So 800K years ago carbon dioxide was just as high as it was in 2018.

I wonder what Caveman Climate Scientist gathered all that information.  How did they measure CO2 levels during the Paleolithic era? Anyone know?

Now, assuming they are correct about the CO2 levels 800K years ago, what this says to me is that our Climate has always been changing and the Earth has the uncanny ability to self-correct.

Of course to the Climate Cult hysterics, our reaching the same CO2 levels in 2018 means that we’re DOOMED!  DOOMED I TELL YOU!!!

I’ll go out on a limb and guess that 800K years ago, the carbon dioxide levels weren’t high due to fossil fuels, fracking, coal mining, gas-guzzling vehicles or people eating hamburgers three times a day.

But it’s probably because there was no Paris Climate Accord.

I read through some of the replies to that tweet and while most of them are pretty snarky, there were a few that pretty much proves that Twitter isn’t sending their best.

Like this one.

Yes, I’m sure it’s the fault of the Trump Administration that CO2 levels were high 800K years ago. How do you read that tweet and arrive at this conclusion?

Though, as I said earlier, they’ll blame Trump for anything, won’t they?

It always amazes me how Leftists believe mankind is both an insignificant speck of no import and so completely all-powerful that we can actually affect the Earth’s ever-changing climate just by running a lawn mower.

Which is it?

Are we nothing but insignificant meat-sacks or are we the all-powerful destroyers of Mother Earth?

Because it can’t be both.

Any old how.

I actually decided to do this post just so I could include a prehistoric bubbleheaded cave girl peddling gloom and doom about the world ending.

800K Years Ago

The climate changes.  It’s what it does — and what it’s been doing long before man happened on the scene.

It’s not some new phenomenon no matter how desperately Alexandria, or some know-nothing Swedish kid or any of the rest of the panic-stricken children want it to be.

    Nice story if you really want to hear a stretching. On Twitter there are people who are actually calling the Trump recession a diversion from the Epstein murder case.
    What recession? There’s no recession

    Core samples. From the artic and oceans, the CO2 can be measured.

      Fact checking a joke. Do you work for Snopes?

        @Dianny – Those same “Ice Core” samples also show temperatures -LEAD- CO2 concentration by ~500-800 years. In other words, temperature averages rise then – CO2 concentrations rise ~500-800 years later.

        Another interesting bit of trivia, atmospheric Carbon Dioxide is measured by REMOVING all water vapor from the sample. The reason given is “to more accurately determine CO2 concentrations in parts per million.” Trouble is, no mention is made of factoring removed water vapor back into the calculations….Isn’t water vapor a major ingredient in Earth’s atmosphere?…

      Dude. You missed the entire point of the article. Sure, core samples can tell you that a kernel of corn in a turd was grown on Max Yazgur’s farm six months ago. So? The point is if the levels of carbon were that high – 800,000, 50,000, or even 1,000 years ago, that would mean the Roman and Persian horses pulling chariots farted and crapped enough to make the skies look like 1920 Pittsburgh. Elementary my good man. Since we know that’s not the case, just relax and enjoy the snark!!

      Ah yes, core samples. We know they are accurate how? Do we have a control group of data from 800,000 years ago to compare the results of their measurements to or was that data lost when New York City went underwater in 2015 like the same ABC said it would?

      Oh, thank you David.?

    The temperature trend has me worried. Lots hotter here than it was just a couple of months ago. Statistically, it should be in the 200s before the end of the year! If we don’t all suffocate from the carbon dioxide first.

    “…actually effect” (affect)
    “be running” (by)
    [Wonders off, wandering if I got the affect/effect thing right or not.]

    I just want the climatistas to tell me what the optimum temperature for the earth should be.

    • August 15, 2019 at 2:58 pm

      EXACTLY…I’m sure it hits the optimum temp at least 2x / yr.
      Fact is, they just won’t say.
