    Prepare your one liners. That carbon contained in fossil fuels only being 0.005% of all carbon one will probably we used by denialists in the same way they claim that CO2 couldn’t possibly have an major impact because it is measured in PPM.

    • Too true!

    • johnBas5

      The deniers sure use some extremely retarded arguments.
      Can’t have a major impact because it is measured in PPM?
      If that were true there is a simple solution to make all pollution go away, lol.

  • Ivor O’Connor

    “Climate news” is a rather broad description Zach. In fact it is the heading I use for about 30 sources. I initially thought there was something wrong with my RSS reader seeing “climate change: climate change”. It works though…
