The levels of carbon dioxide on earth have officially reached 415 ppm, according to readings from the Huawei Observatory of Mona Lua, the highest level in human history, according to meteorologist Eric Holthaus, an increase of 15 ppm During the last three years only.

The last time carbon dioxide levels ( CO2) was to this level about 3 million years ago, when the average temperature in the North Pole was 15 ° C (60 ° C).

At that point the northern region was covered with trees, not ice, and it was thought that the average level the sea surface is 25 meters higher (at least 82 feet).

According to the report, carbon dioxide emissions from human burning of fossil fuels are largely maintained by the heat trapped in the earth, which is usually dispersed in space, and has already led to global warming by 1°C, with the expectation of further increases unless governments of the world will take quick plans.

This could cause sea-level rise, floods, severe storms, droughts and forest fires, besides other problems.

The UN also estimated that climate change and human activity could lead to the disappearance of more than 1 million species of flora and fauna.

Apart from being the highest level in human history, the figure 415 ppm shows that levels of carbon dioxide are rising unabated, despite the Paris Climate Accord.

To achieve these goals, countries had to dramatically increase the pace of change Towards clean energy, and the latest carbon dioxide figures confirm the importance of this task.
