Global CO2 level continues to rise, says WMO report

25 november 2019

Levels of heat-trapping greenhouse gases in the atmosphere have reached another new record high, according to the World Meteorological Organisation. The WMO Greenhouse Gas Bulletin published today shows that globally averaged concentrations of CO2 reached 407.8 parts per million in 2018, up from 405.5 ppm in 2017. Global levels of CO2 crossed the 400 ppm "benchmark" in 2015.
