    Default It's Official: Atmospheric CO2 Just Exceeded 415 ppm For The First Time in Human His

    13 MAY 2019

    Yet another alarming milestone of humanity's damaging effect on the environment has now officially been reached – crossing a barrier into a hot, polluted future like the planet hasn't witnessed in millions of years.
    This weekend, sensors in Hawaii recorded Earth's atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide (CO2) passing 415 parts per million (ppm) for the first time since before the ancient dawn of humanity.
    On Saturday, CO2 concentration recorded at the Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii by researchers from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography hit 415.26 ppm – the latest in a dire series of climatic thresholds being breached by a human society that refuses to relinquish the conveniences afforded by fossil fuels.

    And, how many of us love those cheap "made in China" products. The industrial boom in China has made it the number one contributor to the world's growing carbon dioxide emissions (30% of the total). The U.S., India, Russia, and Japan (in that order) round out the top 5 polluters. These top 5 polluters are responsible for roughly 70% of the world's CO2 emissions. While over 170 countries have joined the Paris Accords to tackle climate change and reduce CO2 emissions, a major CO2 reduction could be realized with serious efforts by just the top 5 countries.

    Here is a dramatic and disturbing glimpse into the future, where years of use of agricultural pesticides and the sudden disappearance of all insects, including pollinators on which our food supply depends, have resulted in this picture of an orchard full of fruit in bloom... and the human pollinators. https://www.freshplaza.com/article/9...fnlrfoAr-Uh-b0

    Thanks for sharing. So, it seems part of the solution is to plant "wild flowers" near crops to increase the population of pollinating insects. I don't think I could differentiate between a wild flower and flowering weeds. Are dandelions, daisies, and clover considered wild flowers or are they technically weeds? I'm a city boy. Lol.

    I guess that depends on whether they are growing on your lawn, in your hayfield or in your orchard!
