The French Government is set to release a report claiming that humans are the cause for the increase in carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. The report notes that this increase in CO2 could soon become an international issue that must be addressed.
The report was based on a study of climate change from 1975 to 2003, and stated that the rise in CO2 levels cannot be explained completely by solar activity. The increase is ‘unequivocally linked to human activity’ the report stated.
The report also noted that the carbon dioxide increases could become a threat to not only our atmosphere, but also our climate and oceans which could impact sea levels, sea life and land habitats.
The changes to the climate and atmosphere can only be measured when assessed and observed over a long period of time the report explained.
