As predicted, the global carbon dioxide level exceeded 410 parts per million for the first time in human history in 2017, a new threshold and the new normal for our lifetimes. PPM is a partial inventory of my thoughts, conversations, concerns, and research on climate change. These associations are collapsed into the exploded diagram of a wood stove, a multivalent symbol of not only carbon but also comfort, necessity, and intimacy.
