Where do you get the figure for CO2 being 200 times the concentration of methane?
At Wikipedia, for “Atmospheric Methane,” they show methane as being around 500 ppm for the last two millenia. Levels of CO2 is actually less than that. I’ve seen something elsewhere that says methane is 170 ppm, which is about less than half that of CO2.
N.B. I just saw that the graph is in ppb–parts per billion, not million.
However, this level–500 ppb over the last 800,000 years, has, in our current time frame, jumped to 1,700 ppb, or 1.7 ppm. Multiply this by 84 and you get, as an equivalent to CO2 greenhouse effects, 143 ppm. This means that CO2 has increased from about 180 ppm to around 380 ppm. That’s a ‘doubling’ while methane has more than tripled from an almost constant value of 500 ppb over the last million years. All of this increase is recent, and never been seen before.
Is our warming due to a tripling of methane concentration in modern times? And, is this release of methane due to increased seismic/volcanic activity?
These are questions deserving attention.
CO2 is 0.04% of the atmosphere. That's 40,000 ppm, you idiot! Or 40 million parts per billion.
Did I mention you're an idiot?
You say methane is 1.7 ppm? You say that's equivalent to 143 ppm CO2? What's 40,000 / 143? My calculator just says "PaV is an idiot."
And where the hell did you ever get "CO2 has increased from about 180 rpm to around 380 ppm" from? Some other idiot?
CC your numbers are way off.
