Atmospheric carbon dioxide increasing faster than expected

A  new study performed by researchers working at the Global Carbon Project, at the University of East Anglia and the British Antarctic Survey, shows that the growth rate of carbon dioxide emissions has increased from 1.3% to 3.3% each year since 2000. The study shows that global carbon dioxide emissions from all human activities had increased   35% over  the emissions in 1990 – the “reference year” in the Kyoto Protocol.
