Carbon Dioxide Levels at a New High - First in Human History

Atmospheric carbon dioxide levels have surpassed 400 parts per million (ppm) for the first time in human history, according to data released by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
According to USA Today’s Doyle Rice, NOAA data revealed on Friday the average CO2 levels at the Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii over the past five days were 400.03 ppm.
Those readings are important because the Mauna Loa Observatory is “the oldest continuous carbon dioxide (CO2) measurement station in the world,” as well as “the primary global benchmark site for monitoring the increase of this potent heat-trapping gas,” the agency said in a statement.
