The CO2 emission levels or Carbon dioxide levels have been rising steadily and it’s causing concern, especially in Alaska. Data extracted from satellites and air crafts show that the amount of CO2 emitted from Alaska has increased by 70% between 1975-201 5 between October and December each year. This is because Alaska’s permafrost, a frozen mass found about meter below Alaska’s surface which has held carbon for around 40,000 years, has started to thaw. Soils in Alaska previously took about a month to freeze over but now it can take up to 3 months or longer to freeze. The entire region of Alaska is monitoring the carbon release numbers that are a result of climate change.
