NPR is not a conservative pro-industry source...and the article certainly does not read as such.
BUT...the levels were higher as short as 120,000 years ago.
That graph shows a spike 120,000 years ago, and another spike NOW.
It doesn't show that our carbon dioxide levels are at some critical historical low point as you said in your initial post. This data does not support the sentence you wrote in caps and told us to read 20 times WHATSOEVER. What it does show is that our carbon levels are at their highest point in 120,000 years. That's very different from our carbon levels being "at an all time historical low"
Backpedal or whatever, but your post was so wrong as to show that you shouldn't even bother voicing and opinion on this issue. You clearly need much more education on it before you should presume to tell other people to read your **************** 20 times cause you're THAT RIGHT.
Seriously dude, I don't want to let your political stance hinder our long friendship, I don't take it personal at all, but you're really, really wrong here and I tell you that as a friend, not to be harsh or offend you in any way.
