Carbon dioxide levels in the Earth’s climate reached 419 parts per million in May 2021.
This is 50% higher than before the beginning of the industrial era, and the average rate of increase is the highest of any era.
These are the highest figures for greenhouse gases in 63 years, even as global air travel and industries slowed for months during last year’s .
According to the Moana Lahwa Baseline Observatory, there has been a record increase in the 10-year average.
According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the cause is complex.
Global greenhouse gas emissions fell 6.4 percent in 2020, but these mild reductions did not have a significant impact on global carbon emissions, given seasonal and natural shortages.
Although greenhouse gas emissions have declined, forest fires have also reduced carbon dioxide emissions from burning trees, possibly to the same extent as the slowdown in the global economy.
According to experts, the most important factor in preventing carbon emissions was the reduction in emissions from crude fuels, but we have to work hard to stop the rising rate because more carbon dioxide is accumulating in our atmosphere every year. ۔
The Paris Agreement set a goal of preventing temperatures from rising to 1.5 degrees Celsius, which would require countries around the world to reduce their emissions by 7.6 percent each year over the next decade.
Experts say that if we want to avoid the worst effects of climate change, we must work hard to reduce carbon dioxide emissions, and that too immediately.
