New peak for carbon dioxide in the atmosphere
"New peak for carbon dioxide in the atmosphere"

"Scientists at the Mauna Loa observatory in Hawaii have measured the highest level since measurements began. The concentration is now as high as when parts of Antarctica were wooded for over three million years ago."

"The so-called Keeling curve at Mauna Loa-the volcano has been ticking up over 415 ppm (parts per million, i.e. parts per million) for the first time."

"the Measurements to the Keeling curve, named after the initiator of Charles David Keeling, began in the 1950s, and is now seen as the foundation for modern climate research."

"By our atmosphere had similar carbon dioxide levels were more than three million years ago. Then a low many of the places around the earth that are now densely populated in the water. Parts of Antarctica were covered by forests, writes the AFP news agency."

"the Scientists agree that it is mankind's rampant eldande with fossil fuels is behind this."

"This shows that we are not at all on the road to protect the climate," says professor Wolfgang Lücht at the PIK (Potsdam-institut für Klimafolgenforschung, Germany) to the AFP."

" the Figure continues to rise higher year after year. It must be stabilized."

"the carbon Dioxide helps to heat up the atmosphere to dangerous levels. And this year is expected to no improvement. Rather, on the contrary, because it looks to be an El Niño year. This phenomenon means warmer ocean currents, which also fires on arctic air temperatures have."

"Probably, we see the effect of the mild El Niño conditions, plus the continuing use of fossil fuels," says Ralph Keeling, son of Charles David Keeling and leading koldioxidforskare at the Scripps Institution in San Diego, California."

"– Every time an (internal combustion)engine is running, we emit carbon dioxide. It must go somewhere. It will not disappear in a miraculous way, " says Lücht."

"Many experts are pessimistic."
