Green Party states this is Scary!

This month the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) announced that the carbon dioxide in the Earth’s atmosphere has reached 400 parts per million (ppm).

The scientific community has warned that greenhouse gases should be limited to levels that avoid allowing global average temperatures to rise by 2 degrees Celsius.

Scientists have marked that wide red line in a band from 425-450 ppm, which is anticipated to be exceeded within a few short decades.

Meanwhile, the lack of climate action from the Harper Conservatives is just as alarming as the increasing concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere.
