The Guardian news paper to include CO2 levels in weather forecasts

Did you know?

The UK newspaper The Guardian has started to include daily CO2 levels as part of the weather forecast.

This is a daily reminder we must tackle climate change, as the CO2 level is the highest it has been for several million years and keeps increasing every day.

The Guardian will publish the Mauna Loa carbon count, the global benchmark, on the weather page of the paper every day.

The pre-industrial baseline was of 280ppm (parts per million). By 1958, when the first measurements were made at Mauna Loa in Hawaii, CO2 levels had reached 315ppm (parts per million). They went past 350ppm in 1986 and 400ppm in 2013.

CO2 are increasing dramatically, driving global warming and climate change.
