Readers be advised, this post is a collection of the latest climate change news I have collected the past week. And to tell the truth, the more science on global warming is published, the more alarming it is.
First thing first, concentrations of carbon dioxide have increased in 2012 by no less than 2.67 parts per million since 2011 to total just under 395 parts per million (ppm). While this doesn’t look much, it is still the second-greatest annual rise in CO2.
This huge increase questions our willingness to prevent the worse from taking place. Even if we are acting on climate change, we aren’t doing enough.
