"Emissions across the globe continue to rise despite nations committing to cut
Scientists are warning of increased climate change events including heat waves,
flooding and droughts if carbon emissions are not cut.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said its long-time
monitoring station at Mauna Loa, Hawaii, averaged 421 parts per million of
carbon dioxide for the month of May, which is when the crucial greenhouse gas
hits its yearly high.
Before the industrial revolution in the late 19th century carbon dioxide levels
were at 280 parts per million, scientists said, so humans have significantly
changed the atmosphere.
Some activists and scientists want a level of 350 parts per million."
