5% CO2 increase makes much warmer climate

Fossils from the mid-Pliocene epoch reveal a far warmer planet with a concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere of only about 5 percent more than exists today, said Harry Dowsett, a U.S. Geological Survey scientist. A reconstruction of the climate 3 million to 3.3 million years ago shows slight increases in CO2 may produce large temperature changes, he said.


Should be interesting, since things are converging: climate change, pollution prevalence, nuclear proliferation, rise of new industrialized nations, religious-national-ethnic-values extremism, fish stocks falling, lack of open land, oceans acidifying, etc.

On the contrary, it makes crops and forests grow faster. Economic analysis has demonstrated that more CO2 and a warmer climate will raise . The report implies that global warming, carbon dioxide levels, creates an even warmer climate, the very fact that CO2 levels are so much.
