High natural gas usage contributing to record high CO2 levels

Recent reports show that the level of carbon dioxide emission continues to grow despite the decline in coal consumption. The carbon dioxide emission is set to rise by 0.6% in 2019 according to the Global Carbon Project. Though this is lower than last year’s rate, the current emission rate will reach record high levels in ..

Carbon dioxide levels and Global Warming

The global concentrations of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere are at dangerously higher levels. The higher the concentration of carbon dioxide, the greater the greenhouse gas which causes the Earth’s atmosphere to heat up. Hence the levels of carbon dioxide are one of the best indicators of the manner in which the planet has been ..
