This entire article’s “proof” is just saying that “higher CO2 happened before humans, therefore humans can’t cause higher CO2“.

Here are logically identical arguments: “England scored goals before Harry Kane, so Harry Kane can’t score goals” Or in American English: “The New England Patriots scored touchdowns before Rob Gronkowski, so Rob Gronkowski can’t score touchdowns” Or more simply: “Fires happened before humans, so humans can’t cause fires”.

So if you agree with this article’s logic and that humans aren’t causing CO2 to rise, you also have to believe that Harry Kane and Rob Gronkowski never scored anything and could never score anything, and that no fire has been caused by a human ever.

Climate change: 'Magic bullet' carbon solution takes big step

 
Tiny pellets of calcium carbonate

Chalky grains of calcium carbonate are the result of concentrating the CO2 that's extracted from the air

A technology that removes carbon dioxide from the air has received significant backing from major fossil fuel companies.

British Columbia-based Carbon Engineering has shown that it can extract CO2 in a cost-effective way.

It has now been boosted by $68m in new investment from Chevron, Occidental and coal giant BHP.

But climate campaigners are worried that the technology will be used to extract even more oil.

Canada is warming at twice the global rate, report says
Canada is warming up faster than the rest of the world, according to a report commissioned by the Canadian Environment and Climate Change Department.

The report — titled "Canada's Changing Climate Report"— says, on average, Canada's climate has been and will continue to warm at double the rate of global warming. The report also says since 1948, when records became available, Canada's average land temperature increased by 1.7 degrees Celsius (approximately 3 degrees Fahrenheit). Some of the key takeaways from the report included:
  • The observed warming of Canadian temperatures are due to "human influence."
  • There has been more rain than snowfall in Canada since 1948, a trend that looks to continue over the 21st century.
  • Temperature extremes have changed in Canada, meaning extreme warm temperatures are getting hotter and extreme cold is becoming less cold.
  • Extreme hot temperatures will become more frequent and intense.
  • Over the last 30 years, the amount of snow-covered land has decreased in Canada.
  • Flooding is expected to increase in Canada because of sea-level rise.
  • Freshwater shortages in the summer are expected because warmer summers will increase the evaporation of surface water.
    Michael Mann, a distinguished professor of atmospheric science at Penn State University, told CNN that the report confirms what's already known, "North America, and especially Canada, is seeing even more rapid warming than the planet on the whole, and the impacts are now readily apparent."

    "In the case of Canada, climate change threatens its very identity, melting its glaciers and ice, shortening its iconic winters by turning snowfall into rain, and flooding its beautiful coastlines," Mann said. "This latest report drives home the fact that climate change is a dire threat now, and if we don't act to dramatically reduce carbon emissions, that threat will only worsen with time." (...)

        It is interesting but in terms of actually reducing climate-influencing emissions, so what?  

        Bring on the Nordic-level excise taxes!

        Incidentally, it looks like carbon taxes in Canada on natural gas are in some provinces going up enough between now and 2022 to represent roughly 55% of the current pre-carbon tax price of natural gas.  A little bit of bite, eh?

        Yes, the actual paper from the study is more detailed (obviously), and points out some per capita findings, also areas like "environmentally intense" foods (good band name) or "land impact rates".  You probably saw this graphic for example:
