Highest Levels of CO2 Ever Recorded

Doctor Ceballos stated that the last time our planet had 400 parts per million of this gas, human life was nonexistent

Civilization will collapse in the next three or four decades due to the rise of carbon dioxide levels — which reached 400 parts per million in March 2016 — caused by pollution, says Doctor Gerardo Ceballos, researcher at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) Institute of Ecology.

“We have reached 400 parts per million. The limit set by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change signed last year in Paris has been surpassed,” claimed the researcher.

This explanation arises from the fact that exceeding the 400 parts per million mark is a red flag indicating the inability to reduce CO2 emissions world-wide. The consequences of the latter will be the continuous increase of the Earth’s temperature caused by the greenhouse effect, as well as sea-level rise, droughts, floods, and water shortage.

In 1958 the Earth had around 200 to 250 parts per million which stayed stable until the year 2000. The current concentration is the highest in the last 800,000 years.

Individual actions to help attenuate this situation are crucial. Planting trees, separating the garbage, and carpooling are simple things that can make a big difference.
