CO2 levels hit historic high: 415.26 ppm

On Saturday morning, May 11, 2019, carbon dioxide hit record highs in the Earth’s atmosphere. The last time Earth’s atmosphere contained this much CO2 was more than three million years ago, when global sea levels were several meters higher and parts of Antarctica were blanketed in forest.

Carbon dioxide concentrations are fueled primarily by fossil fuel burning and over the past few years we’ve seen about 2.5 part per million increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide per year. This might not sound like much but this rate of increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide is many times faster than we have ever seen reliably in the geological past.

This rapid increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide is the primary driver of climate crisis of the global warming crisis that we are seeing with atmospheric temperatures now on the range about 1.0 to 1.2 degrees Celsius.

All this shows that we are not in the track with protecting the climate at all. These increasing numbers needs to stabilize.

But far from stabilizing, levels of carbon dioxide – one of the greenhouse gases produced when fossil fuels are burnt are climbing even more rapidly, this thing needs to tamp down as soon as possible.

This is the first time in human history, atmospheric carbon dioxide has hit this high, more than 415 part per million. The last time human experienced levels this high was….. never. Human didn’t exist then.

In spite of the Paris Agreement and increasing public awareness about the environment pollution problem, mankind continues to break its own emission records, year after year.

This is a very serious event we are witnessing, a geological event that is being caused by fossil fuel burning and fossil fuel based carbon emissions primarily and if humanity keep doing this, eventually we will reach at a point where things will be impossible to stabilize back again.

This is the data of year 2015 by NASA, at that time CO2 concentration in our atmosphere was nearly 400 ppm but now it has reached more than 415 ppm. It’s a matter of concern.
