Co2 levels hit record high for 30th year in a row

  1. 1. CO2 levels hit record high for 30th year in a row
  2. 2. Contd… Greenhouse gas levels in the atmosphere reached a record high in 2014 and the relentless fuelling of climate change is endangering the planet for future generations, the World Meteorological Organisation said on Monday .“Every year we say that time is running out. We have to act NOW to slash greenhouse gas emissions if we are to have a chance to keep the increase in temperatures to manageable levels,“ WMO secretary-general Michel Jarraud said in a statement. Graphs issued by WMO, a UN agency , showed levels of carbon dioxide, the main greenhouse gas, climbing steadily towards the 400-parts-per-million (ppm) level, having hit a new record every year since reliable records began in 1984.Carbon dioxide levels averaged 397.7 ppm in 2014 but briefly breached the 400-ppm threshold in the northern hemisphere in early 2014, and again globally in early 2015. “Next year we will be reporting much higher concentrations because of El Nino,“ WMO atmospheric research chief Oksana Tarasova said.
