ABSTRACT
The article reports on the admonition by four Great Britain scientists concerning the impact of the rising near-surface ozone concentration from industrial sources on the plants' productivity. Scientists found out that although global warming is slowed down, such productivity will likely to decline as near-surface ozone concentration increases due to 25% human-related carbon dioxide emissions stored in soil and plants, as their capability to take up carbon dioxide is being hampered by the low-level ozone. Low-level ozone is considered a weak greenhouse gas, which is not acceptable in vegetation. Moreover, the scientists inferred that such effect will likely to trigger global warming.
