Atospheric CO2 Emissions Measured Downwind from Active Volcanoes

Mauna Loa has been producing a readout which supports Manning's predetermined goal by showing steady growth in atmospheric CO2 concentrations since 1959. This record, highlighted in Al Gore's discredited movie An Inconvenient Truth, is known as the Keeling Curve. A graph of the curve is engraved on a bronze plaque mounted at the entrance to the Observatory’s Keeling Building, 10,000 feet above sea level on the rocky north flank of Mauna Loa. According to the Observatory website: "The undisturbed air, remote location, and minimal influences of vegetation and human activity at MLO are ideal for monitoring constituents in the atmosphere that can cause climate change."

For some reason, they fail to mention the erupting volcano next door.

The article discusses several other observatories that measure atmospheric CO2 downwind from active volcanoes, and even the one in Antarctica has a similar problem:

The South Pole Observatory is just yards away from a power plant which burns jet fuel 365 days a year to provide electricity and heat for Amundsen Station. (Researchers claim that prevailing winds come from the opposite direction.) It is also about 800 miles from Antarctica's Mt. Erebus volcano, which has continuously erupted since 1972. Because the atmosphere's ability to carry water vapor is cut approximately in half by every ten-degree-C drop in temperature, the extremely low temperatures at the South Pole mean that only trace amounts of water vapor are in the atmosphere. CO2 mixes with water vapor in the atmosphere to form H2CO3 (carbonic acid), giving rainfall a slightly acidic pH and washing CO2 from the air. The uniquely dry and cold conditions of the South Pole prevent this from occurring, thus altering the natural atmospheric carbon elimination process and magnifying the effect of CO2 sources. Amundsen Station personnel and emissions from the 12,000-foot Mt. Erebus volcano are also implicated in the 1990s ozone hole scam.

These are particularly egregious examples, but the location and maintenance of weather stations are problems everywhere.

Many are located by airports---with air fares plunging since the 50s and the corresponding rise in the number of flights per day showing up as a rise in temperature.

There are those located in what once were suburbs and now stand atop blacktop.

Maintenance is a huge problem. If they are not kept white through thorough cleaning and repainting, of course they will show an increase in temperature over time.

But all that's okay, because the CRU will adjust the data to compensate, right?

yeah, right, Mike, and Santa Claus is real
-- thanx for pointing out those additional problems

Global Warming is a CONVENIENT LIE - and could be a precursor to getting people used to the idea that there are too many humans - and we'd be better off if we were 'reduced.' Sadly the Environmentalists play right into the hands of the shadow governments who peddle such, then they assume that anyone who doesn't agree to fear is 'pre' their position instead of 'post' their position.
The Environment is of huge concern to me - but an even bigger danger right now is the monopolised control of the media which leads to the gross distortions - I mean there are some folks who still believe in the good fairy Obama - who said he'd shut down Guantanamo (and didn't), or who said he's get the troops home and out of Afghanistan (and didn't) etc. I call on everyone to Wake up - see behind the veil.
At the very least, buy a copy of Alan Moore's "Dodgem Logic" - it's the Oz magazine of today :-)
Be kind to someone today - it's subversive!

thanx, Nick!
I can't repeat often enough that I am all for clean air and water.
I remember the 1960s, when you couldn't get near a car with its engine running because of the noxious gases coming out of the tailpipe, so I really do appreciate the smog controls on automobiles, but I still have to pull over and wait for school buses to get at least a mile ahead of me before I can breathe.
It seems that the government never subjects itself to the maze of regulations that hamstring us when we want to do something as simple as putting out the trash. We have rules about what can go into the trash, which barrel it has to go into, when it can go out front and when it has to be kept out of sight, etc.
County Code Enforcement once cited me, telling me that I had to cut down my hollyhocks, which had cost me good money at the garden shop, because the officer thought they were weeds. Another officer cited my wheelbarrow as a nonoperational motor vehicle and demanded that I haul it to the dump! And said that I could not have my lawn chair out in my yard! One stinking lawn chair!
And I'm breaking the law every time I let my washing machine empty into the rose garden, which conserves water! Yet they have put severe restrictions on how much water we can use, stating that we are in a drought!
I could go on and on, but the biggest crime is that Cal Trans never clears the brush on the side of the freeway. While homeowners are hassled endlessly about six-inch-tall plants in our gardens, huge brush fires start every time an overheated car pulls off onto the shoulder, igniting the six-foot-tall brush that Cal Trans fails to clear!
