CO2 'highest for 650,000 years'
By Richard Black
Environment Correspondent, BBC News website

Current levels of the greenhouse gases carbon dioxide and methane in the atmosphere are higher now than at any time in the last 650,000 years.

That is the conclusion of new European studies looking at ice taken from 3km below the surface of Antarctica.

The scientists say their research shows present day warming to be exceptional.

Other research, also published in the journal Science, suggests that sea levels may be rising twice as fast now as in previous centuries.


I am really angry at those supposed leaders who relentlessly try to convince people that there is nothing to worry about, that climate change fears are the result of junk science and so on. I find the infestation of religion into our government vial and I see it being directly connected to the promotion of the dumbing down of the public. What is being stolen is the most basic drive and that is the drive to protect and nuture our own young. We are encouraged to worry about the religous life of our kids and grandkids which at best is benign and at worst the pathological feeding of superstitions and to ingnore the material evidence for a mounting world of new man made disasters.
