According to foreign media new atlas, at the beginning of this year, when most parts of the world were closed due to the new crown pandemic, scientists observed some significant reductions in air pollution and carbon dioxide emissions. Over the past few months, there has been a growing understanding of how this fits into the overall picture of climate change. A new report from the World Meteorological Organization shows that the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is continuing to soar to record levels with no signs of slowing down. < / P > < p > this year, the new cap blockade that has brought most parts of the global community to a standstill has led to a sharp decline in global carbon emissions. The decline was described as “extreme” by scientists who analyzed the trend in May, when global carbon dioxide emissions fell by as much as 17% at the peak of the blockade. However, analyses published around the same time show that carbon dioxide in the atmosphere continues to hit record highs. < / P > < p > a new report, united in science 2020, by scientists from the United Nations, the global carbon project, the Met Office and the Intergovernmental Panel on climate change, illustrates the continuation of this trend, even though most parts of the world are still grappling with the epidemic and its disruption to daily life. < / P > < p > scientists believe that carbon dioxide levels below 350 ppm in the atmosphere are considered safe, making the earth livable. According to the new report, monitoring stations around the world have set a number of new records. The level measured in monaloa, Hawaii, in July was 414.38ppm, up from 411.74ppm last year; at Cape grime, Australia, the level was 410.04ppm, higher than 407.83ppm in July last year. Antonio Guterres, Secretary General of the United Nations, said: “this is an unprecedented year for mankind and the earth. The covid-19 pandemic has disrupted life around the world. At the same time, the rate at which our planet heats up and destroys our climate continues. We need a long-term, inclusive and clean transition to address the climate crisis and achieve sustainable development, which has never been so clear. We must turn the recovery from this epidemic into a real opportunity to build a better future. We need science, solidarity and solutions. "Skip to content
