Unprecedented "Unnatural" CO2 Levels - Another Climate Warning for Humanity

Another scientific research project has confirmed that carbon dioxide (CO2) has reached  an "unnatural" level for the modern era - a level not seen in three-million years, when trees grew on Antarctica. 

While an increasing body of research continues to warn humanity of present rising CO2 levels and the associated negative ramifications of Climate Change on the living environment, a new research paper by scientists at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK), in Germany, affirms that with continuing CO2 rise, "our planet will change" and today's level of CO2 at 410 parts per million (ppm)  is "unnatural" against a normal accepted level of 280 ppm without human activity, CNN reported earlier today.

This recent research by the German institute goes further than other scientific works since it's the first to combine ocean floor sediment data with analysis of past ice volumes. 

Sadly, the researchers point to the fact that while the pre industrial age temperature rise never exceeded two-degrees Celsius, modeling of the current CO2 level of contamination, points to a four-degrees Celsius rise in temperatures between the years 2000 to 2100. 

Scientists are troubled by the apparent parallel today's CO2 level has with the Pliocene epoch of between 2.6 to 5.3 million-years-ago, when sea levels were 20-meters higher and when trees grew on Antarctica. 

The girth of all recent scientific research into Climate Change suggests that carbon emissions must be minimized immediately in order to give humanity any fighting change to weathering the ill effects of Climate Change, which has been hastened by high levels of CO2.
