CO2 Now: Atmospheric CO2 is accelerating upward from decade to decade

Global warming is mainly the result of CO2 levels rising in the Earth’s atmosphere. Both atmospheric CO2 and climate change are accelerating. Climate scientists say we have years, not decades, to stabilize CO2 and other greenhouse gases. Atmospheric CO2 is accelerating upward from decade to decade. For the past ten years, the average annual rate of increase is 2.04 parts per million (ppm). This rate of increase is more than double the increase in the 1960s.
