On Monday, the United Nations has reported that greenhouse gas levels in the atmosphere, the main operator of climate change, hits a record high in 2018, calls for action to safeguard “the future welfare of mankind.”
World Meteorological Organization Head Petteri Taalas has said that “there is no sign of a slowdown, let alone a decline, in greenhouse gas concentration in the atmosphere despite all the commitments under the Paris Agreement on Climate Change.”
The WMO (World Meteorological Organization) main annual Greenhouse Gas Bulletin has listed the atmospheric engrossment of Carbon Dioxide at 407.0 ppm in 2018, up from 405.5 ppm in 2017.
The reported expand was just above the annual average increase over the past decade.
The concentrations of the other two main greenhouse gases – nitrous oxide and methane – hits recorded level in 2018, said the WMO.
It continued that “this continuing long-term trend means that future generations will be confronted with increasingly severe impacts of climate change, including rising temperatures, more extreme weather, water stress, sea-level rise and disruption to marine and land ecosystems.”
The releases are the main factor that regulates the amount of greenhouse gas levels, but focusing rates are a measure of what remains after a series of complex discussions between the atmosphere, lithosphere, biosphere, the oceans, and cryosphere.
Around 25% of all emissions are currently consumption by the biosphere and the oceans – a term that accounts for all ecosystems across the globe.
The lithosphere is the solid form, which is the outer part of the Earth, while the cryosphere covers that part of the globe covered by frozen water.
The United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has stated that in order to keep warm below 1.5 degrees Celsius, net Carbon Dioxide emissions must be zero, means that the amount of being pumped into the atmosphere must be equal the amount being eliminated, either through technological innovation or natural absorption.
