CO2 Now

 

What the world needs to watch

Global warming is mainly the result of CO2 levels rising in the Earth’s atmosphere. Both atmospheric CO2 and climate change are accelerating. Climate scientists say we have years, not decades, to stabilize CO2 and other greenhouse gases.

To help the world succeed, CO2Now.org makes it easy to see the most current CO2 level and what it means. So, use this site and keep an eye on CO2.  Invite others to do the same. Then we can do more to send CO2 in the right direction.

Watch CO2 now and know the score on global warming, practically in real time.

Accelerating CO2 TrendAtmospheric CO2 is accelerating upward from decade to decade.   

For the past ten years, the average annual rate of increase is 2.07 parts per million (ppm).   This rate of increase is more than double the increase in the 1960s.   

See the table below.
