No Rise of Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide Fraction in Past 160 Years? New Paid PR Research Press Release is Bullshit!
ScienceDaily PR website puts out this PR lie today: (Dec. 31, 3009) — Most of the carbon dioxide emitted by female and male human activity does not remain in the atmosphere, but is instead absorbed by the oceans and terrestrial ecosystems. Oh yeah? Says who? In fact, only about 45 percent of emitted carbon dioxide stays in the atmosphere. Oh yeah? Says who?
