The stoy of climate change #3




The world emits about 16-18 billion tonnes of excess carbon oxide each year that the oceans and forests cannot absorb. Eight billion tonnes equals 1 part per million (ppm). So we are adding over 2 ppm to the atmosphere every year.

The problem is: the current rate is
staggeringly fast, 20,000 times the long-term planetary rate! We’re
now at 390 ppm, up from 276 ppm at the time of the Industrial
Revolution.
