Why are CO2 levels rising so rapidly?



  1. 0 Votes

    Carbon dioxide levels are rising rapidly due to the increased amount of carbon dioxide produced by humans since the Industrial Revolution. Each year, 20 billion tons of carbon dioxide are released by manmade sources such as cars and factories. This may increase to 70 billion tons of carbon dioxide by 2100 as developing countries become industrialized. Carbon dioxide persists for 100 years in the atmosphere, making it difficult to get rid of.

    The measured amount of Carbon dioxide in the air was measured at 389.69 ppm in December of 2010. That’s an increase from the recorded 381 ppm in 2006. Deforestation and forest fires, the burning of fossil fuels, and other factors contribute to the increase in CO2 in the atmosphere.

    CO2 levels are rising so rapidly due to not only what has been mentioned above, but also due to people’s carbon footprint, fertilizer use, the use of oil for transportation and other various uses and many other reasons. Although we are beginning to create alternatives to lower CO2 emission levels, it will still take some time before levels decrease gradually.
