Original Message Atmospheric carbon dioxide has only been measured since 1958. All atmospheric carbon dioxide numbers before 1958 are made up. Except for maybe one or two measurements, by the guy who discovered carbon dioxide.

The "deadly poisonous dangerous pollutant", carbon dioxide, has only been directly measured for 51 years. Shouldn't we wait a while, get at least a century worth of measurements before we go making very expensive changes to everything?

"Charles David Keeling (April 20, 1928 - June 20, 2005) was an American scientist whose recording of carbon dioxide at the Mauna Loa Observatory first alerted the world to the anthropogenic contribution to the "greenhouse effect" and global warming.

In 1957-58 and Keeling received IGY funding to establish a base on Mauna Loa in Hawaii, two miles (3,000 m) above sea level.

Dr. Keeling started collecting carbon dioxide samples at the base in 1958."

They are measuring carbon dioxide from on an active volcano. Anybody see any problems with that?

"Mauna Loa is the largest volcano on Earth in terms of area covered. [...] It is an active shield volcano."
