Report Highlights Figures of Greenhouse-Gas Concentrations
A recently submitted report from the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) has mentioned about the record high levels that the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere has reached.
The officials from the organization said that the new record high touched in the year 2011 by marking a 30 percent increase in the radiative forcing.
Experts' calculations said that the period between 1990 and 2011 has cited a 30 percent increase in radiative forcing i. e. the warming effect upon our climate, for which they blame carbon dioxide (CO2) and other heat-trapping long-lived gases in the atmosphere.
The WMO report from the experts explained that the start of the industrial era in 1750 has till date released approx 375 billion tons of carbon, which has occurred due to the higher remains of CO2 in the atmospheres that is the primary for fossil-fuel combustion.
"These billions of tons of additional carbon dioxide in our atmosphere will remain there for centuries, causing our planet to warm further and impacting on all aspects of life on earth", notes WMO Secretary-General Michel Jarraud. "Future emissions will only compound the situation".
The report has clearly brought out the fact of atmospheric concentrations that are being stated as the main reason for the damage by the experts.
