They have jointly issued a report.
Under the heading Key point they have three points (Did they rush it into publication?):
- Fossil-fuel CO2 emissions increased by more than three per cent per year from 2000 to 2010.
- The concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere in 2011 was 390 parts per million – higher than at any time for the past 800,000 years.
- The main cause of the observed increase in CO2 concentration in the atmosphere is the combustion of fossil fuels since the industrial revolution.
Their second key point is not agreed by all scientists. For an example, a paper published in 2007 - 180 YEARS OF ATMOSPHERIC CO2 GAS ANALYSIS BY CHEMICAL METHODS" was published in the journal Energy and Environment. (link) Their conclusions contained:
During the late 20th century, the hypothesis that the ongoing rise of CO2 concentration in the atmosphere is a result of fossil fuel burning became the dominant paradigm. To establish this paradigm, and increasingly since then, historical measurements indicating fluctuating CO2 levels between 300 and more than 400 ppmv have been neglected. A re-evaluation has been undertaken of the historical literature on atmospheric CO2 levels since the introduction of reliable chemical measuring techniques in the early to middle 19th century.Their third key point is straight from the Alarmists' song book. There is not one single peer-reviewed paper that shows "The main cause of the observed increase in CO2 concentration in the atmosphere is the combustion of fossil fuels since the industrial revolution."
Because the CSIRO is now not reporting pure science but is singing from the Alarmist Song Book, it is rumoured that the Scientific is to be dropped from the title and Alarmist added. C.A.I.R.O.
Because the BoM has bombed with the report, an additional B (for Biased) is to be added to their acronym - BOMB.
