Greenhouse gases on the increase

Greenhouse gases on the increase

Major greenhouse gases are accumulating faster than in the past despite efforts to curtail their increase.

Carbon dioxide concentration in the air increased by 2.4 parts per million last year, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration reported Wednesday; methane concentrations also rose.

Global concentration of carbon dioxide is now nearly 385 ppm. Carbon dioxide levels hovered around 280 ppm until 1850. Methane in the atmosphere rose by 27 million tons last year after nearly a decade with little or no increase, according to a NOAA researcher.

Try to do some thing for our world. Any one from of all level can able to contribute to save our world. At every moment you r spend you just find out and ask to yourself from, internally that, is any thing going wrong (Is unwanted use of Electricity, Water, Plastic bags, cutting of trees?). You can just try it just for one day it will really give you happiness and you will pride that I did some thing for our self, for others, for our future generation and our beautiful world due which we r living and existing here.
