Carbon Dioxide Levels by City Tech Blogger Babajide Sonibare

I recently observed a graph that demonstrated the parts per million in the amounts of carbon dioxide is a major contributor to the warming of our atmosphere. Carbon dioxide levels are at its highest since 65,000 years ago. That’s a really long time! It has been moving in an upward trajectory since the beginning of the industrial revolution and is mainly due to our human activity such as the burning of fossil fuels, deforestation as well as natural processes such as volcanic eruptions. A prime example of global warming, the last three consecutive Octobers (2014-16’) were record high temperatures in the recorded history of our planet Earth.
