Frightening Increase in Carbon Dioxide. According to data from the World Meteorological Agency, the rate of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere reached the highest level in history last month. Data from 12 different stations around the world show that the level of 400 ppm per million was increased in the Northern Hemisphere.
According to data from the World Meteorological Agency, the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has passed an alarming threshold.
According to the news in Livescience, data from all monitoring stations in the Northern Hemisphere reached 400 ppm, the highest level recorded in human history.
The world's longest continuously operating CO2 monitoring site, the Mauna Loa Observatory, showed the average CO2 concentration for April to be over 400 ppm.
Data from 12 separate stations also show that 400 ppm was exceeded during the month.
The biggest reason for the increase in carbon dioxide is industrial investments and human activities.
During the Industrial Revolution, this rate was 278 ppm. Scientists say that such a high level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere was seen 15 million 800 thousand years ago, at a time when humans did not yet live on Earth.
That is, humans have never lived on an Earth with such high levels of carbon dioxide.
