Congratulations Humans!!

We’re have added a new record to our race to the end of its ecosystem.

According to the report from Mauna Loa Observatory, a research outpost of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Agency located in Hawaii, United States the Carbon Dioxide presence in the atmosphere has reached to a record 415.26 parts per million. This is the highest number ever recorded in the history of humans since our existence on the Planet Earth.

This shocking milestone was first noted on Twitter by the climate reporter Eric Holthaus, based on the data recorded and presented by the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California, San Diego.

This record came just within a week when the report was unveiled by IPBES saying that 1 million species around the globe face extinction due to human activities.

Carbon Dioxide has heat absorbing properties due to which the heat absorbed and emitted by the land and sea is trapped in carbon dioxide molecules this is why carbon dioxide impacts the greenhouse effect on the planet.

CO2 is the most impacting gas to the Climate Change and the atmospheric CO2 is responsible for almost 66% of the total energy disparity causing Earth’s temperature to rise.


Where are we going? There’s still time to make changes for a better future of this planet.
