Record high GHG

The emission of greenhouse gases in the world has reached a record high. Thanks to the World Meteorological  Organization, accurate records have been kept since 1958. Numbers don't lie. They say that the emissions have kept rising in the 50 years from 1958 to 2008. They also found that the more gases are being released into the atmosphere each and every year. Not only do these gases help global warming, but they also pollute the air we breathe. This translates into respiratory problems or diseases (Influenza A H1N1), smog days and basically, a shorter life. We must stop this horrible pollution.
Levels of greenhouse gases, believed to be responsible for global warming, have been rising every year since detailed records started being kept in 1958, the World Meteorological Organization said.
It follows a trend of rising emissions that began with the Industrial Revolution in the mid-18th century, the agency said.
The report comes as the European Union urged the United States and China on Monday to set targets for cutting greenhouse gas emissions at next month's climate conference in Copenhagen. The European Union said delays by those countries were hindering global efforts to curb climate change.

  1. How do you know that global warming is caused by GHG?. Maybe sunspots are the cause.

  2. If GHG could be exported to the moon it would really help make it a habitable place.
