As per new data, the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has increased by the 2nd highest annual rise in the past 6 decades. Scientists warned for more than a decade that concentrations of more than 450 ppm risk triggering extreme weather events & temperatures rise as high as 2C. The CO2 growth rate is still very high; the increase from last May was well above the avg for the past decade.
