Atmospheric CO2 levels hit a record high in 2016: UN warns increase could fuel a 20 metre rise in sea levels and add 3°C to global temperatures

  • The report shows that atmospheric CO2 hit 403.3 parts per million in 2016
  • In comparison, in 2015 levels were 400.0 parts per million, experts said
  • Sources such as coal, oil, cement and deforestation contribute to CO2 levels
  • The El Niño weather pattern also gave CO2 levels a further boost
  • The last time carbon dioxide levels reached 400 ppm was three to five million years ago, in the mid-Pliocene era 

The amount of carbon dioxide in the Earth’s atmosphere grew at a record rate in 2016 to a level not seen for millions of years, the United Nations has revealed.

This increase could fuel a staggering 20-metre rise in sea levels and add 3°C to temperatures.

Experts hope the findings will encourage environment ministers around the world to work on new guidelines for the Paris climate accord.

Scientists are warning of ‘ecological Armageddon’ after discovering the number of flying insects has fallen by three-quarters over the past 27 years.

Researchers in Germany have documented a steep decline at dozens of nature reserves.

Their findings have sparked fears the foodchain will collapse because insects are important pollinators and serve as meals for birds and other small creatures.

Apocalypse-Collapse-Burning

(Natural News) For years, I’ve warned that humanity is a suicide cult which has engineered its own destruction by relentlessly poisoning the natural world with chemical pesticides, heavy metals and GMOs. Now, the collapse of living systems across the planet is accelerating like never before, with ocean fisheries collapsing by the day, topsoil vanishing by the inch, and wildlife populations being decimated by the accelerating destruction of habitat.

Humanity, it seems, has broken the planet, and the mass die-offs are now impossible to ignore. Adding even more weight to the horrifying realization that humanity is committing mass ecological suicide, a new study published in the science journal PLoS One has documented a 75 percent decline in insect biomass over rural Germany in just the last 27 years.

The study, authored by Caspar A. Hallmann and others, is entitled, “More than 75 percent decline over 27 years in total flying insect biomass in protected areas.”

The food web is now collapsing… insects are just the beginning.

Even more worrisome, insects are the pollinators that keep 80% of wild plants alive by facilitating pollination.

Insect biomass “decimated” in mere decades… this won’t end well

Hurricane Ophelia is the latest weather system to whip up winds and rain in the Atlantic.

But the storm is heading east toward the northwest coast of Spain instead of crossing the Atlantic toward the hurricane-ravaged Caribbean.

Ophelia officially gained hurricane status on Wednesday evening,according to the National Hurricane Center.

As Hurricane Irma batters South Florida, animals have taken shelter in unlikely places.

A pair of flamingos was pictured hiding in a laundry room. Cheryl Lu-Lien Tan tweeted that her friend was helping to shelter the pink creatures.

And a family staying on the 22nd floor of a Marriott Hotel in Miami found a pair of unlikely companions right outside their window. Laura Aguair snapped photos of the birds.

Two colorful parrots were pressed against it, avoiding the harsh winds of the storm as it continues to terrorize the Floridian metropolis.
