Atmospheric Carbon Highest for 800000 Years

Research carried out by the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) has shown concentrations of Carbon Dioxide in Earth’s atmosphere are at the highest level seen in 800,000 years.

Last year, Carbon Dioxide concentrations rose at a record-breaking pace to 403 parts per million as a result of both the El Nino weather warming event and from human emissions.

The organisation predicts that such a rise in carbon could cause ‘unprecedented changes in climate systems’ that can lead to irreversible economic and ecological issues.

The effect of warming on climate has risen by 40% since 1990, with around 2.5% of this occurring just between 2015 and 2016.

WMO Secretary-General, Petteri Taalas stated: “Without rapid cuts in CO2 and other greenhouse gas emissions, we will be heading for dangerous temperature increases by the end of this century, well above the target set by the Paris climate change agreement.”

“Future generations will inherit a much more inhospitable planet.”

“CO2 remains in the atmosphere for hundreds of years and in the oceans for even longer. The laws of physics mean that we face a much hotter, more extreme climate in the future.”

“There is currently no magic wand to remove this CO2 from the atmosphere.”
