Carbon Dioxide Emissions Continue Significant Climb

An international group of scientists have revealed that the annual rate of increase in carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuels has more than tripled in this decade, as compared to the 1990s.

Furthermore, they have claimed that the Earth’s future is quite dark unless the CO2 emissions are reduced considerably.

The Global Carbon Project report stated that the CO2 emissions have risen at a rate of 3.4% per year from 2000 to 2008, in comparison to 1% that occurred each year in the previous decade.

The scientists have documented an increase of 29% in the global CO2 emissions, since 2000. According to them, the rise is due to the increasing production and trade of manufactured products, especially due to the gradual shift from oil to coal, and the planet’s weakening capacity to absorb CO2.

Moreover, there is strong evidence that suggests that the land and ocean are becoming less efficient at removing CO2 from the atmosphere, which could further speed up the future climate change.
