Samples are taken from all over the planet. Ice cores from the arctic and antarctic, sea bed cores from all over, lake bed core samples, tree ring samples. It's not like someone found a bubble in a snowball one day and said hey lets make an entire scientific field off this.

1800 ppb is the same as 1.8 ppm is the same as 0.00018% or 1.8/10,000 of one percent. I just have doubts that changing from 1.6 to 1.8 ppm would really make much difference in atmospheric heat absorption.

Thanks Rez for the link.
I don't see any new information, but it looks like more people are aware of this huge problem popping up on the radar screen.
Last I read, Arctic ice began breaking up almost as soon as it formed in February.
Then there is recent news about the spike in the Gulf Stream in 2012, but no info as what the temp is doing right now. I wonder when this added heat will, if it hasn't already happened, hit the Arctic Ocean. I am waiting to see how much information we will get as this situation develops over the summer.
Will we read about observed numbers of plumes of methane coming up from the Arctic, or will this information be withheld. Odds are good that 2013 will set a new record in sea ice shrinkage. There is the possibility that this will have no major impact, but all the evidence points to the probability that this is a huge change coming our way that is beyond biblical.
People want to believe that this will not have any serious impact for a hundred years, but current evidence suggests this could have an extremely serious impact in the next decade.

I used to be firmly in the "Natural Cycle" camp, but lately I have changed my thinking a little. Things like the BP Oil Spill and Fukushima MUST have a drastic affect on all of this as they destabilize the ocean currents. More than anything else it are these currents that influence our weather patterns. Not to mention all of the animals these events kill. This planet is locked in a very delicate ecological balance and we are effing it all up.
Good news though. We won't kill ourselves. We are a pretty resilient species. Once it becomes glaringly obvious we must change directions, the power brokers of this planet will reluctantly cave in and allow tech to be released that can avert all of this. I don't buy into "runaway" climate change that we cannot control.
If we pooled all of our resources, we have the power of Gods.
