Carbon Dioxide Update

CARBON DIOXIDE UPDATE….The latest on global warming:

The rise in humanity’s emissions of carbon dioxide has accelerated sharply, according to a new analysis.

The Global Carbon Project says that emissions were rising by less than 1% annually up to the year 2000, but are now rising at 2.5% per year.

….”At these rates, it certainly sounds like we’ll end up towards the high end of the emission scenarios considered by the IPCC,” commented Myles Allen from Oxford University, one of Britain’s leading climate modellers.

Well, that should solve the problem of vote count foulups in Florida, anyway.
