Robbie Andrew from the Center for International Climate and Environmental Research – Oslo has created an interesting animated graph showing the growth of CO2 in the atmosphere. While it has the typical “climate proponent” view attached to it, it is interesting to watch because it clearly shows how CO2 jumps faster when ENSO is strongly positive.
Drivers of Atmospheric CO2
While we measure the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere in mere parts per million (ppm), this small amount has a substantial effect on the temperature at the surface of the Earth. The amount has now increased by 40% since the industrial revolution, leading directly to increased temperatures worldwide.
There are four main drivers of the changes in the level of CO2 in the atmosphere.
The seasonal cycle
The first is the seasonal cycle, dominated by the forests of the northern hemisphere, absorbing CO2
