Fire Earth

Earth is fighting to stay alive. Mass dieoffs, triggered by anthropogenic assault and fallout of planetary defense systems offsetting the impact, could begin anytime!

Hazardous Weather

Afternoon Heat Indices are forecast to climb into the 105 to 110 degree range today and Wednesday. The hot temperatures and high humidity will combine to create a dangerous situation in which heat illnesses are possible, said NWS.

  • NWS has issued Urgent Heat Advisories for large swathes of Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Mississippi and Louisiana.
  • Fire Weather Watches have been issued for northern California and southern Oregon counties.

Earlier today NWS issued a Significant Weather Advisory for Kansas, warning that a fast-moving storm system would be producing continuous cloud to ground lightning, and advising residents to seek shelter indoors immediately, stay away from windows and “move to an interior room on the lowest floor of a building.”

In yet another warning, NWS said “heavy rains may quickly flood low lying areas …,” advising residents to avoid those areas.

CO2 Tops 400ppm at Mauna Loa as Forecast

Posted by feww on May 11, 2013

Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide Crosses 400PPM Milestone at Hawaii Observatory

On April 3, FIRE-EARTH forecast that the weekly average atmospheric CO2 at Mauna Loa could hit 400ppm by May 2013.

Last 5 days of daily average CO2

May 09 – 400.03  |  May 08 – 399.42  |  May 07 – 399.59  |  May 06 – 399.43 |  May 05 – 399.47  |

This is the first time the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere in Hawaii tops 400ppm since measurement began in 1958, according to ESRL data.

The rise to 400ppm level of the atmospheric carbon dioxide represents yet another appalling milestone in the brief history of the homo ignarus.

The last time Earth’s atmosphere contained this much carbon dioxide was probably as many as 5 million years ago.

CO2 Daily and Weekly Means at Mauna Loa.  The weekly mean (red bar) is simply the average of all days in the week for which a background value could be defined. The average standard deviation of day to day variability, calculated as the difference from the appropriate weekly mean, equals 0.38 ppm for the entire record.

Up-to-date weekly average CO2 at Mauna Loa

  • Weekly value from 1 year ago: 396.81 ppm
  • Weekly value from 10 years ago: 378.50 ppm

Recent Global CO2

  • February 2013: 395.98 ppm
  • February 2012: 393.05 ppm

Recent Monthly Average Mauna Loa CO2

  • March 2013: 397.34 ppm
