Carbon Dioxide Reaches  of Years

Levels Not Seen in Millions

The amount of heat-trapping

 carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has shot past a key milestone — more than 50% higher than pre-industrial times 

Before the industrial

 revolution in the late 19th century carbon dioxide levels were at 280 parts per million

The National Oceanic and 

Atmospheric Administration said its monitoring station at Mauna Loa, Hawaii, averaged 421 parts per million of CO2

Activists and scientists

 want a level of 350 parts per million. Industrial carbon dioxide emissions come from the burning of coal, oil, and gas.

This year’s carbon dioxide

 level is nearly 1.9 ppm more than a year ago, a slightly bigger jump than from May 2020 to May 2021.

Humanity has to make more

efforts and see a rapid decrease in greenhouse gas emissions, or the impacts of climate change will only continue to worsen
