The climateweenies at Slate wonder if we would give up burgers to stop “climate change”. Hey, considering how cold this spring is….can we call it spring? In all my years in NC I have never had to turn the heat on in May…perhaps we need to eat more burgers. Though it has been kinda chilly to have a cook out (via Tom Nelson)

In case you missed the news, humanity spent the Earth Day week reaching another sad milestone in the history of catastrophic climate change: For the first time, measurements of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere surpassed 400 parts per million, aka way above what our current ecosystem can handle.

That’s weird: I can’t find any scientific stories saying it crossed that line. Lots which say we’re close to doing that, none that say we have.

Actually, you probably did miss the news because most major media outlets didn’t cover it in a serious way, if at all. Instead, they and their audiences evidently view such information as far less news-, buzz- and tweet-worthy than (among other things) the opening of George W. Bush’s library and President Obama’s jokes at the White House Correspondents Dinner.

Oh, there you go,is it’s a conspiracy. Got ya. Except, the Slate article is from the 2nd. The French Tribune published a story on the 5th stating that the world is on the verge of crossing 400 ppm.
