AGU conference 12th December 2016
Presentation and press release Dr. Peter Carter
Dr Andrew Glikson's June 2016 paper Cenozoic mean greenhouse gases and temperature changes with reference to the Anthropocene.
'The ice core evidence of concentration of (GHG) and temperatures in the atmosphere/ocean/cryosphere system over the last 740 kyr suggests that the rate of rise in GHG over the last ~260 years, CO2 rates rising from 0.94 ppm yr−1 in 1959 (315.97 ppm) to 1.62 ppm yr−1 in 2000 (369.52 ppm) to 3.05 ppm yr−1 in 2015 (400.83 ppm), constitutes a unique spike in the history of the atmosphere'.
Atmospheric CO2 is skyrocketing
Press release 12/12/2016
Atmospheric CO2 is skyrocketing at the fastest rate of increase ever in Earth history. The world is in the most dire climate and ocean emergency. Continued huge fossil fuel emissions have the planet on a fast track to total catastrophe -- heading into runaway carbon-dynamic global climate change and ocean acidification.
Dr. Peter Carter, of the Climate Emergency Institute (www.climateemergencyinstitute.org), warned in his AGU 2016 presentation that the rate of today's atmospheric CO2 concentration suddenly jumped up in 2015 to just over 3 parts per million (ppm) per year. Australian paleo-climate (distant past) expert, Dr. Andrew Glikson, has determined that this rate is unprecedented in Earth history.
From data just released by the NOAA (National Atmospheric and Oceanic Administration), Dr. Carter says that this year, CO2 has jumped up again to a stunning 3.37 ppm (Nov 2015 to Nov 2016). While last year's big increase may be partly explained by the El Nino influence, that does not apply to this year.
This comes on top of today's atmospheric CO2 concentration being the highest in 15 to 20 million years. World leaders who reject or ignore this planetary emergency situation have a death wish for the human population and most life on the planet.
