Carbon Emissions Accelerate

January 2007
Australasian Science;Jan/Feb2007, Vol. 28 Issue 1, p10
The article discusses the findings of a study conducted by the Australian Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) Marine and Atmospheric Research regarding the levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Study data revealed that the growth rate of carbon dioxide emissions was more than 2.5 percent per year from 2000 to 2005. Research notes that 2005 was the fourth year in a row with above-average growth in carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere.
