The goal of 350 ppm is now a pipe dream

Researchers at the Global Monitoring Division of NOAA recently released a report that the atmosphere has for the first time in modern history maintained 400ppm for an entire month.

The old goal of trying to limit atmospheric carbon concentrations to only 350ppm is now LONG gone!

That's what ongoing inaction will do when America, one of the two largest carbon emitters in the world, failed to act.

Is this all America and Americans' fault?  No, but we as nation sure didn't do hardly anything to stop it.  This makes me sad.

This is sad, sad, but somehow appropriate news for Earth Day.
