The article reports on the growing carbon dioxide emission and its environmental impact. According to a U.S. reports, carbon dioxide emission grew at a rate of 3 percent since 2000, compared to 1.1 percent in the 1990s. The impact of rising emission to wind speed and marine ecology is discussed. Doctor Paul Fraser of CSIRO expects the growth pace of greenhouse gases emission to remain unabated.
