Mankind's Footprint Only Two Parts Per Million

By Elmer Beauregard


You've all probably seen this chart from Mauna Loa by now, it shows how the earth's CO2 is ever increasing. It goes from 315 ppm to 385 ppm in 50 years, an increase of about 70 PPM.

What you may not know is, mankind is only responsible for 3% of that increase, nature produced the rest, the oceans being the worst culprit by far.

If you take 70ppm and multiply it by .03 (3%) you get 2.1 or 2 parts per million, which is all that mankind is responsible for. That's it, that's what all the hubbub is about.

The magic number set by the Greeny Weenies is to get CO2 levels back down to 350 PPM, like it was in the mid 80's. But if you were to totally eliminate mankind off the face of the earth it would only bring it down 2PPM to 383 which is what it was in 2008.

Here is my version of the Mauna Loa Chart where I pan out to show a whopping 1% of the earth's atmosphere. By zooming out to show more of the atmosphere it shows that this increasing CO2 is maybe not so bad after all. Especially because it's what makes plants grow which in turn make Oxygen for us.
