Carbon dioxide in the atmosphere reached the highest level in over 800,000 years, while Australians are facing the warmest decade in history, according to the National Agency for Science in Australia (CSIRO).
Report published by officials indicate that from 1990 to now, average daily temperatures in Australia rose by 0.75 degrees Celsius. Experts predict that by 2070, there will be an average temperature increase of up to 5 degrees Celsius.
Paradoxically, CSIRO announced that the database that has shown that 2010 and 2011 were the coldest years and that cooling occurred as a result of La Niña phenomenon. But scientists argue that despite cooling products named La Niña climate phenomenon, temperatures continue to rise.
“In Australia, temperatures tend to be lower during periods of heavy rain. However, in the last decade, temperatures began to rise. Because temporary cooling, the increase was not noticeable, but it exists,” said meteorologist Karl Breganze.
On the other hand, Dr Paul Fraser, a researcher at the CSIRO, said that the carbon in the atmosphere reached 390 parts per million. The news is particularly alarming since there is no evidence showing that 800,000 people who could be investigated, the CO2 would be up more than 300 parts per million.
The report indicates that these temperature increases will lead inevitably to floods, droughts and cyclones. Moreover, global sea levels will continue to grow until it reaches to 210 mm higher than in 1880.
Dr. Braganza hopes the report will convince people and making them understand that global warming is evolving at a rapid pace. “Global changes of this magnitude occur very rarely. Generally arise from major events, such as an asteroid collision or planetary volcanic activity. Now the phenomena are caused by the extract and burn fossil fuels.”
