SP to Carry Mauna Loa Carbon Count
The Seattle Press has begun carrying the carbon count history of Earth as measured at Mauna Loa volcano on the island of Hawaii. The report echoes the monthly graph of CO2 levels there.

The ML measurement, due to its remoteness, is considered by by atmospheric scientists to be a good index of global concentrations that are thought to be the principal factor in global warming of the atmosphere.

From 1958 to 2019 the levels have steadily increased at rates not seen for millions of years.
