Has the concentration of carbon dioxide ever been as high as it is now?

    At least in the last 650,000 years, no, the carbon dioxide levels have never been higher then they currently are. If you follow the link below you can find a diagram of Carbon Dioxide Variations over time – our 380 ppm (parts per million) is extremely high. A little over 300,000 years ago there was a peak at about 300 ppm, but it doesn’t seem to go much higher. And scientists think the current levels could go as high as 450-550 by 2050.
