have evidence the 350 part per million is not safe level go to youtube and write extreme ice and click to 26 min and watch to 29 min and another video write history co2 and after is that you will know the 350 and 280 part per million is not safe level the safe level is 250 if you see this comment go to facebook and twitter and say for him what I tell

i did read it all, dumb dumb!!!
And you have the stupidity to counter by citing the above portion of the article!!!!! LMAO

After all, it's bozos like you demanding to the world that man made co2 is the sole reason for climate change! Lol

Psssst....co2 is a minor trace gas which man is only partly a contributor.

But don't let that sway you from your blind faith, lemming!!

This is a denier sample in ignorance.

You have nothing to say but name calling, LOL. Can you afford to learn a little?

Today 90 million tons of manmade ghg emssions, equivalent in energy to 400,000 hiroshima's every day are increasing the CO2 concentration beyond 400 ppm, which used to be 280 ppm when the industrial revolution.

"We have five minutes before midnight," warned Rajendra Pachauri, whose organisation will this month release the first volume of a new assessment of global warming and its impacts.

Won't you come back with more name calling like the other deniers aka whitewashers?

You got caught again like the other science deniers. FYI:

RAPIDLY rising carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere are causing a potential catastrophe in our oceans as they become more acidic, scientists have warned.

Hans Poertner, professor of marine biology at the Alfred Wegener Institute in Germany, and co-author of a new study of the phenomenon, said:“The current rate of change is likely to be more than 10 times faster than it has been in any of the evolutionary crises in the earth’s history.”

Sea water is naturally slightly alkaline, but as oceans absorb carbon dioxide from the air, their pH level falls gradually. Under the rapid escalation of greenhouse gas emissions, ocean acidification is gathering pace and many forms of marine life – especially species that build calcium-based shells – are under threat.

Poertner said that if emissions continue to rise at “business as usual” rates, this would be potentially catastrophic for some species. Acidification is just one of a broader range of the problems facing the oceans and the combination of different effects is increasing the threat. Poertner said:“We are already seeing warm water coral reefs on a downslide due to a combination of various stressors, including (rising) temperature. Ocean acidification is still early in the process (but) it will exacerbate these effects as it develops and we will see more calcifying species suffering.”

On his international missions, Rajendra Pachauri, the chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), called for radical action to stave off environmental disaster.

He urged people to eat less meat, pay aviation taxes and even ban giving iced water in restaurants. But in order to get his message across, the former railway engineer, who lives in Delhi, created an enormous carbon footprint of his own.

Dr Pachauri has been the chairman of the panel since 2002. Documents available on its website showed that in one 19-month period, he clocked up more than half a million miles in the air as he travelled the world on official business.

Between January 2007 and July 2008, he took more than 120 long-haul flights and 43 short-haul trips, taking in countries such as New Zealand, America and Fiji.

Dr Pachauri’s trips would have produced 121.1 tons of carbon dioxide, according to calculations by ClimateCare, a carbon offset provider.

can you, son?

Blind faith isn't a very reliable course to enlightenment .

You only have opinions....and that's all.

No name calling needed to point out the errors of your thinking, son.

But keep wailing doom and gloom. Some of us are actually watching the real science, and living in reality.

<quoted text>LOL. You look foolish because you did not read it all:
Kerry Emanuel, a professor of meteorology at Massachusetts Institute of Technology who edited the PNAS paper, said that "changing steering patterns are only a part of the whole problem of how and whether hurricane risk may change in a particular place."
"One must also account for changing locations and times of storm formation, and changing storm frequency and intensity," Emanuel said. "These can very much change the landscape of hurricane risk, so one should be careful in drawing overall conclusions about such risk from just one piece of this problem."
P.S. I see now you have no understanding of AGW. Can you afford to learn a little?
The lesson from this paper....climate models are useless.

From the article:

Jennifer Francis, a meteorologist at Rutgers University, said the study "makes a useful contribution" to the understanding of how climate warming may be affecting weather patterns. But she said that though the computer models used in the study are the best available, their accuracy is uncertain.

CSU's Barnes, the lead author of the study, acknowledged that the possible lengthening of the hurricane season is a factor in the tracks of future storms and that the computer programs used in the study are "imperfect."

"The point one should take from our paper is just that these are the best climate models we have, and they do not support the notion that the kind of steering flow that occurred in Sandy will become more frequent in a warming climate."

So to sum up, every prediction that has ever been made about AGW has been with a computer model. They admit that their accuracy is uncertain and that the programs are imperfect. So whatever paper is put out is meaningless.

By the way, the IPCC has downgraded their prediction that global warming is tied to hurricanes from likely to low confidence. Bottom line, they know nothing.
