For the first time ever, a weekly reading at Mauna Loa's CO2 observatory exceeds 410 ppm.

For some reason - possibly because the orange nightmare is in the process of firing the staff, or perhaps lying by the newly formed EDA, the Environmental Destruction Administration that replaced the EPA - the data graphic at the Mauna Loa website was not updated this week, but the data page at the observatory shows the result for the week ending May 15, 2017, which is 410.36.

This is 2.97 ppm over the same week of last year, last year having been the 2nd worst year every observed, 3.00 ppm over the previous year, 2015, which in turn was the worst year ever recorded at 3.03 ppm.

For the record, the first weekly reading ever to exceed 400 ppm occurred on May 26, 2013, just four years ago.

I'm personally happy that the world just invested 2.4 trillion dollars on so called "renewable energy" in the last ten years while it's advocates bashed nuclear energy while making exceedingly stupid remarks about their backyards and other bourgeois horseshit.

Even if the so called "renewable energy" hasn't done shit to address climate change, isn't doing shit to address climate change and won't do shit to address climate change, it's still um great, because...well...because...because...um...the farmers outside the Luoyang Zhonggui "green" solar plant, don't um count.

History will not forgive us, nor should it.

Have a nice Sunday evening.
