Party in Your Plants

SO APPARENTLY THE reading of atmospheric carbon dioxide at Mauna Loa (note: a volcano) passed 400 parts per million here recently.

This is some kind of a milestone, or so I’m given to understand.

Meanwhile, back at the climate, global temperatures continue to fall unexpectedly. For the twelfth year in a row. Nope. Sorry Fifteenth. (Hard to keep track.)

And, in other places (like — the rest of the world), CO2 concentrations … vary widely. But they only report the one reading that they take … on a volcano.

Here’s a quick one. Do you know where most atmospheric CO2 comes from? That’s right, volcanic action.

Funny how that works.

And they cite that high reading — maybe one of the higher readings on the planet — like it was a bad thing. Forgetting, of course, that the plants on which the entire food chain — including us — depends thrive on the stuff.

And they expect you to panic.
