    Research: Carbon emissions rise in 2017 after leveling off for 3 years

    Monday's report is a disappointment to some who believed that three recent years without an increase was the start of a worldwide fall in carbon dioxide emissions.

    The results are a disappointment to those who believed that three years without an increase was the start of a worldwide fall in carbon dioxide emissions. "Global CO2 emissions appear to be going up strongly once again after a three-year stable period. This is very disappointing," researcher Corinne Le Quere of the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research at England's University of East Anglia told CNBC. "This is a window into the future. We need to reach a peak in global emissions in the next few years and drive emissions down rapidly afterwards to address climate change and limit its impacts."

    The Global Carbon Budget also noted that cumulative carbon emissions include readings from the atmosphere, on land and in the water. In each case, stores of emissions, known as natural sinks, grew in the years 2007 to 2016 in response to increased man-made emissions.

    Your truck appears to be burning oil at an astounding rate. The environment won't be the only thing hurting if you allow that to persist.

    Now show me a chart that shows the production of goods and energy for the whole of humanity on earth and you might have some credibility. Otherwise, get lost. IOW, there is no correlation to our activities.

    Without that data, none of this information points to your supposed AGW hypothesis.
