Record the contamination was was may 11.
For the first time in human history the concentration of carbon dioxide in the Earth’s atmosphere reached 415,26 ppm (parts per million). Record the contamination was registered on 11 may, scientists from the Scripps institution of Oceanography in San Diego.
The average rate of growth of CO2 concentration remains high. Compared with the previous year’s level the increase will probably drop to about three parts per million, while in previous years, the average growth was 2.5 ppm. Probably we see the result of the impact, a moderate El niño, which is superimposed on the effects of burning fossil fuels, – said the Director of the monitoring program at Scripps Ralph Keeling.
For comparison, in 2015, the level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere was 400 ppm, and at the end of 2018, the average concentration rose to of 405.5 ppm. Scientists suggest that if the level of carbon dioxide will increase in a similar pace, by the beginning of the new century the concentration of carbon dioxide will reach 1200-1300 ppm.
In the end, global warming will increase water temperatures in the oceans will rise by eight degrees, causing large-scale ecological disaster.
