Go CO2, go!

Not unexpectedly, atmospheric CO2 level hit a new peak in 2010…. as it is constantly doing.

The BBC reports,

Levels of carbon dioxide (CO2) – the major contributor to climate change – rose by 2.3 parts per million between 2009 and 2010.

That exceeds the average for the past decade of 2.0 parts per million, the World Meteorological Organization says…

“The atmospheric burden of greenhouse gases due to human activities has yet again reached record levels since pre-industrial time,” said WMO Secretary-General Michel Jarraud.

Concentrations of CO2 reached 389 parts per million in 2010 – the highest such concentrations since the start of the industrial era in 1750.

One thought on “Go CO2, go!”

  1. According to the following post by Steve, the annual change is decelerating. Is the WMO playing statistical games?
    Monster growth in CO2 emissions — or monster omission?

    “The chart (below) shows the actual annual change in the CO2 PPM concentration has been decelerating since 1998 as nature has apparently found a way to adapt.”
