Carbon dioxide reaches another record level in Earth's atmosphere

There are 34 comments on the KSDK-TV Saint Louis story from Jun 7, 2018, titled Carbon dioxide reaches another record level in Earth's atmosphere. In it, KSDK-TV Saint Louis reports that:

Carbon dioxide - the gas scientists say is most responsible for global warming - peaked again at record levels last month, federal scientists announced Thursday . Levels at NOAA's Mauna Loa Observatory averaged more than 410 parts per million in April and May, surging past yet another climate milestone.

But the naysayers will just say they made up these numbers without any good evidence.

Not at all. It simply meaningless, since CO2 is not uniform in the atmosphere. It is not possible to measure the global content of CO2 in the atmosphere.

Further, CO2 is incapable of warming the Earth.

But you deny both the science and the math.

It is not possible to measure the sugar in every ml of tea in your glass never the less it is sweet. What a doofus.

A milliliter is a unit of measurement,#138. So is the amount of sugar you put it in it.

False equivalence. A dozen is not a measurement,#138.

But if the tea is cool some of the sugar will settle on the bottom. It is impossible to determine the amount of sugar in the tea according to your whacky though process. So if you can't determine exactly how much sugar in each ml of tea, the tea will never be sweet.

Hello Mr. Bozo.

Now THAT is a rather well constructed 'principled argument'.

Unfortunately, a principled argument does not register with some people so they fail to understand it's meaning therefore are incapable of recognizing the errors in their reasoning.

Anyway,
Well done!

Well done??? You actually agree with this lack of logic???

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

It is AMAZING that neither of you know what a measurement is!

To both of you:

No, you don't know exactly how much sugar is in the tea. You measured it putting it in. It is only as accurate as the measurement, as well as the measurement of the tea itself (in milliliters).

A dozen is not a measurement. Eggs are graded by size (a measurememt), by color (a measurement), and sold individually, usually packaged in lots of 6 or 12 (not a measurement).

You two are more alike than you care to admit!

Dunce, If some of the sugar is settled on the bottom it is not evenly distributed through the tea. that is the argument that you use to say that we have no idea how much CO2 is in the atmosphere. But I suspect that just passes over your head. Likewise it is the same argument that you use to say that we have no idea if the Earth is warming or not because we cannot measure the temperature of every molecule.

That's ok. You can purchase your eggs by the ounce or pound if you wish--if you can find anyone who measures the quantity of eggs this way. LOL

Makes no difference,#138. It's still in the teacup.

No, it isn't. Pay attention. Contextomy.

It certainly passed over YOURS. Pay attention.

...deleted ongoing egg rant...
Never made any such argument. Pay attention,#138. Contextomy.

We are discussing the quantity of a substance in a system (in this case C12H22O11 and CO2) and how distribution affects the precision of their measurement.

This is refered to as a concept ...a principle, if you will.

Worth checking out!

Good luck with processing the premise.

Apparently it's a little too deep for either of you to conceptualize.

How many molecules of sugar are in a tablespoon,#138?

There are 6.023X10^23 molecules in a mole of sugar. You figure it out. But what does that have to do with the concentration of sugar in a glass of ice tea or the CO2 concentration in the atmosphere. Doofus. Just more Nightsoil diversion because you have no clue.

Precisely.

Yes, you're right, Mr. Bozo!

Mr. Night is demonstrating an inability to process the comparative concept of measuring or the inability to measure a concentration of one substance (in this case; CO2) in a system (in this case; air) with that of sugar and tea.

Granted, the former is hugely more complex ....but the principle, never the less, is the same.

Again -well done Mr. Bozo.

More diversion from the doofus denier. What do you think a mole is in this context? A mammal that burrows in the ground?

"LOL"?

why are you laughing?

On this rare moment that you actually offer a counterpoint ....you lose the argument on your first sentence by basing it on flawed reasoning i. e. "Dunce".

An answer could be forthcoming if you would care to explain it's relevance to the question under discussion.
