    We have increased atmospheric CO2 by 40% in the last 200 years.

    Atmospheric CO2 is now at its highest level ever recorded, and the Antarctic ice core record goes back 600,000 years.

    Every year we are adding 10 billion tons of CO2 to the atmosphere.

    At the current rate in 100 years we will have added 1,000 billion tons of CO2 to the atmosphere.

    What do you think the effect of 1,000 billion tons of CO2 will be?

    How much does the atmosphere weigh? What percentage of that is CO2? Now when the CO2 concentration was 20 times what it is today the temps were only around 10 to 15 degrees higher than now....and the planet was wonderful. The largest plants, the largest animals the world has ever seen existed back then. The evidence says that warmth is good and cold is bad. Also according to the paleoclimate record the world now is cooler than it has been for over 90% of its history....so if we were looking at averages we are colder than we should be.

    Riddle me that batman.

    I sense a string of 20 or so posts by Chris showing high temps in cities to bury your comment coming on :)

    bogus dishonest numbers by disingenuous bureaucrats cooking books to secure increased funding are not very convincing.

    When it was 20 times higher then today the sun was far dimmer and had far lower output being at the time it was a much younger star. It boggles the mind that it can be putting out more energy little by little as time goes by and here is here being at possibly at one of the coldest periods in its 4.6 billion year history. Only 300-350 million years ago and 15 milion until today has been colder or the same as today. We should be expecting a warming planet back towards its avg.

    No question in my mind if co2 levels where that high again today with the sun we have today that we would likely be a good amount warmer. Yes venus warming is because of the pressure/density of the Atmosphere and the fact it gets twice as much, but not all. Some of it is caused by the gas ability to trap the input from the sun that makes it through and stop any output going into space.

    Agree with most of what your saying about it being good for life.

    As I suspected.

    The deniers have no answer.

    Once again, what will be the effect of 1,000 billion tons of CO2 added to the atmosphere?

    No one is denying it might be getting warmer you liar, we deny that YU can prove man caused it. The evidence just isn't there.

    Like I said, no answer to the question, just insults and changing the subject.

    What will be the effect of 1,000 billion tons of CO2 added to the atmosphere?

    What was the effect when it was 20 times higher in the past? I allready told you so now it is your turn and for your information calling sceptics deniers is just as much an insult.
