Pretty serious s!$% for our children to have to contend with by mid century.

I note that come May the 20th our annual MOT/Warrant of Fitness type checks on vehicles will include an instant fail for any vehicle that has had any apparent tampering of emission equipment, as well as an instant fail for any oil drips.
Thats every Land Rover f!$%ed then.
Things are toughening up in the UK.

And W(ho)TF took the readings millions of years ago (and where and when and what with)?

Twats.

Linked Article for X-Man:
Scientists have been able to track the historic changes in carbon dioxide through a number of methods, from air pockets in Antarctic ice cores to sludge on the deep sea floor. The new research compiles 1,500 of these carbon dioxide estimates to create a view that extends 420 million years.

The carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere today are ones that likely haven’t been reached in 3 million years. But if human activities keep committing carbon dioxide to the atmosphere at current rates, scientists will have to look a lot deeper into the past for a similar period. The closest analog to the mid-century atmosphere we’re creating would be a period roughly 50 million years ago known as the Eocene, a period when the world was completely different than the present due to extreme heat and oceans that covered a wide swath of currently dry land.

“The early Eocene was much warmer than today: global mean surface temperature was at least 10°C (18°F) warmer than today,” Dana Royer, a paleoclimate researcher at Wesleyan University who co-authored the new research, said. “There was little-to-no permanent ice. Palms and crocodiles inhabited the Canadian Arctic.”

He stressed that even if we reach those carbon dioxide levels by mid-century, crocodiles won’t suddenly appear in the Arctic. But because carbon dioxide stays in the atmosphere for centuries, climate change will continue to reshape the planet even if humans magically cut emissions to zero after hitting that peak.

I'm pretty sure when Krakatoa etc blew their tops off the atmosphere would have been f!$%ed for quite a while

Nope, still not convinced. Isolated pockets mean nothing, not even 1500 of them especially when they are estimates.(according to the link.
