Wow. The highest in 800,000 years!
Just like 800,000 years ago. You know, the last time humans caused this.

What humans raised levels this high 800k years ago? Curious

So did humans cause the rise in carbon dioxide 800,000 years ago? I’ll wait for the answer.

But we've only got 12 years left. Not as lucky as those damn polluters from 800k years ago, I guess.

So what you're saying is, the earth on its own reached this level of CO2 before and made it out just fine.
