The amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has been increasing dramatically for at least 800,000 years. Atmospheric greenhouse gas reserves are at an all-time high. Researchers at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration say they have seen unprecedented levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere by 2020.
CO2 levels rose by 412.5 units last year by one million, up 2.5 percent by 2.5 compared to 2019. Carbon emissions are also rising in the oceans. According to the same report, 2020 was 30% higher than the average for 1999-2019. Extreme weather conditions due to unusual greenhouse gas emissions in different parts of the world, according to the study
As usual, some areas around the world were particularly dry by 2020, and some were wet. The Middle East experienced a severe drought in autumn, with most areas reporting no rain in October. In South America, the Bolivian lowlands were among the worst hit by the drought. Drought has also affected epidemics in Bolivia, Paraguay, and southern Brazil.
Greenhouse gases are gases that attract light and heat, and they heat our planet as a whole. Atmospheric CO2 levels are at an all-time high, putting the earth at a very high risk. Due to the greenhouse effect, climate change is taking place, which is affecting the greenhouse as a whole.
In fact, as the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere increases, so does the amount of sunlight in the earth’s crust and oceans, and the amount of carbon dioxide decreases. The atmosphere generally contains more radiation than the sun, warming the planet. Scientists believe that in order to reduce our carbon footprint and keep the planet alive, it is important to take action now as an individual and as a species.
