We have 45% more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere than we had 100 years ago. The pre-industrial levels were at 280 ppm we now have over 415 ppm. The safe upper limit is 350 ppm.
The 28-nation European Union,and California raised the bar to reduce emissions by 40% below 1990 levels by 2030.
60 percent of fossil-fuel emissions stay in the air. This caused the recent relentless rise in CO2 shows a remarkably constant relationship with fossil-fuel burning. ~ NASA
If California's Stays on track they will achieve the Assembly Bill 32's goal to reduce emissions 80% below 1990 levels by 2050.
We must reduce our emissions by 80 percent below 1990 levels by 2050 in the U.S. to do our part to limit global warming below 2 degrees Celsius. This is the warming threshold at which scientists say there will likely be major climate disruptions such as mega storms, droughts, & rising sea levels.
This is the composition of CO2 emissions in America.
