Coral needs CO2 to live, don't be a hater.

Check this out: http://calculator.carbonfootprint.com/calcula... "Payments for ecosystem services (PES), also known as payments for environmental services (or benefits), are incentives offered to farmers or landowners in exchange for managing their land to provide some sort of ecological service. They have been defined as "a transparent system for the additional provision of environmental services through conditional payments to voluntary providers."[1] These programmes promote the conservation of natural resources in the marketplace."[^ Tacconi, L.(2012). Redefining payments for environmental services. Ecological Economics, 73(1): 29-36.]

Look, you can get all the CO2 you want into your lungs as people have told you here the way.

Here's from the records: From 1751 to 1995, the cumulative global total CO2 emissions from fossil fuel production were 250x10^^9 tonnes C. Only 25% of this total was emitted by 1950, 50% by 1973, and 75% by 1985.

What are you talking about?

The issue is the first man-made extinction. How's that actually a planet issue?

NOT.

Who measures fossil fuel consumption? Do you think somebody keeps track of whether you're keeping a fuel reserve or burning every drop you buy? Even if true, natural sources of CO2 far exceed man's emissions.

Coincidence isn't causality, there's more loud music now, maybe that causes climate change. We've got the same number of experiments testing that hypothesis as AGW = zero.

Atmospheric CO2 hasn't been this high for 3 million years of the planet's existence. The last time the Earth was at or above 400ppm humans did not exist . Get it Now, BrianG?:-/

LOL. Don't judge human capabilities by your own disabilities.

Your hollow posts don't even have an echo. You are easy to dismiss.

400ppm X 3 = A safe level of CO2 in the air... It is logical.

Humans have never lived on this planet when CO2 levels in the atmosphere were at or above 400ppm. Thanks a lot deniers .You just doomed all of us to a death sentence.

Since science gave us pesticides making environmentalism necessary in the first place it has to be asked; just how close to unstoppable warming will science take us before they say their climate crisis WILL happen not just might happen? Not one IPCC warning isn't swimming in "maybes". Not once has science ever said their crisis was inevitable, just "could be". If science stopped saying “maybe” and started saying “inevitable” all debate would cease because if it’s not “inevitable” it’s not a crisis. Deny that.
“Climate change has moved into a new and highly dangerous phase and is now the most urgent issue confronting the world,” said Ian Dunlop, member of the Club of Rome and Deputy Convener for the Australian Association for the Study of Peak Oil.
"urgent phase" and "dangerous phase" and "has moved into a phase"
ARE NOT LIKE
"evetentual" "imminent" "inevitable" "unavoidable" "impending"
Since the scientists have said for 28 years that their climate crisis is NOT as real and eventual as they say comet hits are, what is it then? And let's spare the little tiny catastrophic climate crisis for a Harry Potter movie.
*Occupywallstreet now does not even mention CO2 in its list of demands because of the bank-funded and corporate run carbon trading stock markets ruled by politicians.
*Canada killed Y2Kyoto with a freely elected climate change denying prime minister and nobody cared, especially the millions of scientists warning us of unstoppable warming (a comet hit).
*Julian Assange is of course a climate change denier.
*Obama had not mentioned the crisis in two State of the Unions addresses.
REAL planet lovers are happy a crisis was exaggerated.
Millions continue to die in Africa thanks to enviro whackjobs banning DDT.

<quoted text>You were not listening very well to the President giving his State of the Union 2013 address.
"Obama proposed on Tuesday to divert some of the royalties from the boom in oil and gas production to invest in research for electric and natural gas vehicles and biofuels, part of a plan to tackle climate change described in his State of the Union speech.
Obama will ask Congress to make the production tax credit for wind, solar and geothermal power permanent and refundable to try to double renewable energy production by 2020, and in his budget in coming weeks, he plans to propose incentives for state governments that take steps to increase energy efficiency."Check this out: http://www.nbcnews.com/id/50790131/ns/busines...

I gotta an idea. Turn of all yout pilot lights and turn on all the gas burners in your home. Leave them open for an hour or so then light up a cigarette. It cannot be guaranteed that your house will explode so there is nothing to worry about. Oh! I'll bet you wouldn't do that. But you are willing to ignore what the scientists say about climate change. What a logical mind you have.

'The planet is finite. This means it has a finite capacity to give us resources sustainably, and a finite capacity to absorb our effluents (like climate-change-inducing carbon dioxide). And yet economic policy, including monetary policy, continue to assume that the planet is capable of supporting infinite growth in both.' http://signon.org/sign/stop-behaving-as-if-th...

'middleofthedownwronggully' has no science, chemistry, astronomy, physics, algebra or pre-calc for its poorly earned hi skule DEE-plooomaa, & has no science & mathematics degrees.
