The numberisn’t quite a surprise, becauseit’s been rising at an accelerat-ing pace. Years ago, it passedthe 350 ppm mark that manyscientists say is the highest safelevel for carbon dioxide. It nowstands globally at 395.So far, only the Arctic hasreached that 400 level, but therest of the world will followsoon.“The fact that it’s 400 issignificant,” said Jim Butler,global monitoring directorat the National Oceanic andAtmospheric Administration’sEarth System Research Labin Boulder, Colo. “It’s just areminder to everybody that wehaven’t fixed this and we’restill in trouble.”Carbon dioxide is the chief greenhouse gas and stays inthe atmosphere for 100 years.Some carbon dioxide is natu-ral, mainly from decompos-ing dead plants and animals.Before the Industrial Age, lev-els were around 275 parts permillion.For more than 60 years,readings have been in the 300s,except in urban areas, wherelevels are skewed. The burningof fossil fuels, such as coal forelectricity and oil for gasoline,has caused the overwhelmingbulk of the man-made increasein carbon in the air, scientistssay.It’s been at least 800,000years — probably more —since Earth saw carbon dioxidelevels in the 400s, Butler andother climate scientists said.Until now.Readings are coming inat 400 and higher all over theArctic. They’ve been recordedin Alaska, Greenland, Norway,Iceland and even Mongolia. Butlevels change with the seasonsand will drop a bit in the sum-mer, when plants suck up carbondioxide, NOAA scientists said.So the yearly average forthose northern stations likelywill be lower and so will theglobal number.Globally, the average car-bon dioxide level is about 395parts per million but will passthe 400 mark within a fewyears, scientists said.The Arctic is the leadingindicator in global warming,both in carbon dioxide in theair and effects, said Pieter Tans,a senior NOAA scientist.“This is the first time theentire Arctic is that high,” hesaid.Tans called reaching the400 number “depressing,” andButler said it was “a troublingmilestone.”

It tooktime for people to discoverthey could get all messed upand hallucinate from coughsyrup, for example. Then,trends develop like mixingit with Sprite and calling it‘sizzurp.’ These trends arereferenced in rap music andadults don’t know what thoselyrics are saying but the kidsdo,” he said.Fittro said he debatedwhether or not to include somuch nitty-gritty details inthe video because some maysay it’s too much informationand could be mishandled.However, he believes theurgency of parents and teach-ers knowing what to look foroutweighs all else.“Drug users already knowthese things; the people whoneed to catch up are theparents, teachers, medicalproviders, counselors andother law-abiding adultswho haven’t kept up withthe drug culture, he said.“They’re out of the loopand if we’re going to fixa broken machine, we firsthave to be familiar with themachine itself.

By GENE JOHNSONAssociated Press
SEATTLE — A gunmankilled five people in Seattle onWednesday — four at a cafeand another in a carjacking— before he apparently shothimself as officers closed infollowing a citywide manhunt,authorities said.The suspect died laterWednesday at HarborviewMedical Center, hospitalspokeswoman Susan Greggsaid.Police who began scouringthe area for the person whoopened fire at the cafe nearthe University of Washingtonresponded a short time laterto another fatal shooting nearthe city’s downtown. They saya man killed a woman in anapparent carjacking and fled ina black SUV.Police said late Wednesdaythey believe one man wasresponsible for both attacks.“At this time, we feel prettyconfident that we have the sus-pect,” said Assistant SeattlePolice Chief Nick Metz.The Seattle Times iden-tified the suspect as Ian LeeStawicki, 40, of Seattle, citingunidentified law enforcementsources. Seattle police Sgt. SeanWhitcomb said he couldn’t con-firm the name and said policewould not publicly identify thesuspect Wednesday night.Andrew Stawicki, 29, of Ellensburg, told the Times herecognized a photo shown onTV newscasts of the allegedgunman as his brother Ian.Andrew Stawicki said IanStawicki was mentally ill.“It’s no surprise to me thishappened,” he told the news-paper. “We could see this com-ing. Nothing good is going tocome with that much angerinside of you.”A phone number for AndrewStawicki rang busy when TheAssociated Press tried to reachhim for comment.The latest spasm of deadlygun violence to hit the cityworried Seattle’s leaders andprompted police to considerincreasing patrols in high-crime areas. The five victims’deaths bring the number of homicides so far this year to21, matching the total for all of last year.Police said residents couldexpect a heightened policepresence in the city for thetime being.Gunfire erupted lateWednesday morning at CafeRacer, a restaurant and musicvenue north of the Universityof Washington. The gunmanwas described as a man, pos-sibly in his 30s, wearing darkclothes.Police released two photosfrom inside the cafe, apparent-ly taken from a security cam-era. One shows a man walkinginto the establishment, with awoman nearby reading a book.Another photo shows stoolsoverturned, and the man stand-ing and holding what appearsto be a handgun.Two men died at the scene,and a third man and a womanfrom the cafe died at a hos-pital.One man wounded incafe shooting remained atHarborview in critical butstable condition followingsurgery earlier in the day.Gregg confirmed his nameas Leonard Meuse. Meuse’sfather, Raymond Meuse, toldthe Times his son was shot inthe jaw and armpit but wasexpected to survive.A King County medicalexaminer’s spokeswoman saidher office might be able torelease the dead victims’ iden-tifications today.Evan Hill, who lives abovethe building where the shoot-ing happened, said the cafewas an artists’ collective andperformance space.“It’s the strangest place tothink of a shooting,” said Hill,who heard four to five shots.He said he ran to his balconyand called 911, but didn’t seea suspect.On a street corner acrossfrom the cafe, friends of thevictims gathered by the ivy-covered wall of an apartmentbuilding. Some collapsed ingrief. The cafe’s owner huggedthem and commiserated.
