The highest concentration of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere is yet another warning to get ready for ultimate environmental revolt! Carbon dioxide, a gas that traps radiation at ground level, creating ground-level ozone can have detrimental effects on both humans as well as the environment. Being one among the greenhouse gases, the rising level of co2 means rising global warming.
The Scripps Institution of Oceanography measured carbon dioxide at 411.35. This is the highest monthly level ever recorded by scientists. According to the scientists researching greenhouse gases predicts that this could be the highest concentration in entire human history.

Witnessing extreme human activities and behaviours, over time, the effect of this rising level of Co2 will be compound. We already know that Co2 has its share in Climate Change; many believe that carbon dioxide is the primary culprit in the rising global temperature. Other effects include acid rains, the emissions released from burning fossil fuel combine with moisture in the air caused acid rain in several regions, and with this big amount- there’s no stopping either!
Increased levels of Carbon dioxide can also have inimical effects on human health. As breathing becomes difficult with higher Co2 concentration, this one factor is now driving the wave of Covid-19 pandemic. According to the Lans live, dyspnea is one of the symptoms of the strain of coronavirus. People can experience difficulty in breathing with uneasiness in the chest. Thus lower the oxygen level, severe the consequences.
Scientists argue, if the level of carbon dioxide keeps rising, there perhaps will soon be a future of protective gas masks and oxygen containers. Act now, or suffer forever!
