CO2 Levels Are Rising Even Faster!

A report released just yesterday from Australia is painting a grim picture for planet earth. According to scientists CO2 levels are rising at an alarming pace.

"The growth rate for carbon dioxide, or CO2, emissions has averaged 3.3 percent a year since 2000, compared with 1.1 percent in the 1990s, according to today's study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The rate rose 35 percent more than economic growth had led scientists to anticipate, said Corinne Le Quere, one of the authors of the paper."

Perhaps it is time that we really start to worry and begin taking some serious action... The snowballing effect of climate change is just going to make things get worse a lot sooner then scientists are predicting I am afraid. If the carbon sinks have reached their saturation point of CO2 levels we are in big trouble. You see a lot of the CO2 that we product is absorbed by the oceans and forest, but the ocean can only soak up so much CO2 and the deforestation and wildfires are devastating our natural CO2 sponges.
