Rising C02 levels since 2005

Thursday May, 23rd

In my class I am researching about Rising C02 Levels since 2005. The Rising C02 levels in April 2013 were 398.35 ppm. Global warming is mainly the result of CO2 levels rising in the Earth’s atmosphere. Climate scientists say we have years, not decades, to stabilize CO2 and other greenhouse gases. The present level is higher than any time during the last 800,000 years, and likely higher than in the past 20 millions years. The increase is largely attributed to anthropocentric sources. COis an important component of Earth’s atmosphere because it absorbs and emits infared radiation, (Playing a role with plants).
