الغازات الدفيئة تصل إلى مستويات قياسية

By Phil Bainbridge

October 26, 2021 - ارتفعت غازات الاحتباس الحراري في الغلاف الجوي إلى مستويات قياسية في العام 2020 على الرغم من انخفاض الانبعاثات الجديدة بسبب الوباء، مما يعرض جهود الحد من ارتفاع درجات الحرارة للخطر.

The concentration of carbon dioxide, which accounts for around 66% of the heating effect of greenhouse gases, reached 413.2 parts per million in 2020, 149% of the pre-industrial level. Despite the economic slowdown and reduced industrial activity caused by COVID-19, there was no discernible impact on the atmospheric levels of greenhouse gases and their growth rates, although there was a decline in new emissions.
