Carbon Di-Oxide Level raised 3.05 PPM this year, NOAA study finds

National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, commonly referred as NOAA have released a report in its official website, which states the level of carbon di-oxide has almost jumped by 3.04 ppm (parts by Million) in the year 2015. The current increase in the level of Co2 is the fourth year in a series, where level of carbon di-oxide has been increased more than 2 ppm. noaa_inouye_regional_center_front_view_med

The current observations states us that the level of carbon di-oxide is increasing vigorously, and faster than the previous year. While comparing the current decade with previous decades, the rate of carbon di-oxide is increasing vigorously. In NOAA’s observation laboratory in Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii, the annual growth rate for the year has been measured and the measurement represented current year Co2 level has jumped by 3.05 PPM.

Pieter Tans, lead scientist of NOAA’s Global Greenhouse Gas Reference Network., has mentioned as,

“Carbon dioxide levels are increasing faster than they have in hundreds of thousands of years,” “It’s explosive compared to natural processes.”

Since 1800, the level of carbon di-oxide is being increased rapidly from 280ppm to 402.59ppm. Yeah, this will be one of the major threat to the entire human race. The current increase is almost 200 times than the previous increase, the sudden increase in the level of Carbon di-oxide might be due to the ENSO oscillation. ENSO, El Nino Southern Oscillation will normally increase the water temperature over the pacific ocean, and the weather will be affected to the core.

Other impacts were increases in the level of carbon di-oxide and also other toxic gases too. Apart from this, Mashable, a tech-blog states that the increase in the level of carbon di-oxide is the highest in history in the past 56 years of time frame. But, NOAA’s data shows that the current level is the highest level in the past 800,000 years.
