SAD: Carbon Dioxide Levels Are At Its Highest Ever In Human History.

Sup Travellers?! You know that little problem called Global Warming? Well shiz just got serious!!! The level of Carbon Dioxide in the atmosphere is smoking some serious weeed because it's high as hell. It's at a scary point now and scientists are expecting the worst.


Carbon-dioxide levels in the atmosphere passed the mark of 400 parts per million on Thursday for the first time in human history, reports the BBC. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration made the declaration based on readings of the heat-trapping gas at a station on the Mauna Loa volcano in Hawaii. (Another monitoring program run by the Scripps Institution of Oceanography hasn't quite gotten to 400 yet, but it supports the NOAA figure and chalks up the difference to a technicality.)

Research also shows that continued emissions of long-lived greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide will mean "largely irreversible" climate change for 1,000 years even after we curtail emissions.

"The last time we're confident that CO2 was sustained at these levels is more than 10 million years ago, during the middle of the Miocene period," climate scientist Michael Mann told The Huffington Post in an email. "This was a time when global temperatures were substantially warmer than today, and there was very little ice around anywhere on the planet."

Let's just take a moment and ponder on how fragile we are at this moment. If the ice caps melt, do you know what that means? It means that we all die... That's what it means. I don't think as an individual you can change the level of Carbon Dioxide in the atmosphere but collectively if we all make small changes and lessen our carbon footprint maybe we can make a difference. Maybe instead of driving to work or to school all the time, take a taxi or maybe carpool. Anyway, whatever you do, it doesn't change the fact that my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
