Carbon dioxide in the earths atmosphere has risen to its highest level in at least 2.1 million years, according to a new investigation of the greenhouse gass role in ice ages over the millennia.

Backing the carbon tax are … Andrew Sullivan and a bunch of economists, nominally led by Harvard’s Greg Mankiw. This seems a little lopsided.

Soils Have Limited Carbon Sequestration Capacity: North American, German Researchers

Two separate studies conducted by American, Canadian and German Researchers show that soils have a limited capacity when it comes to sequestering carbon. It has been known for quite some time that plants absorb CO2 from the surroundings as they grow and process that carbon into their tissues. Upon a plants death, the carbon gets amalgamated into the soil and remains stored there with soil particles.
