Numerous human activities increase CO2 emissions in the atmosphere. The expected results from the readings would be an increase in atmospheric CO2 concentrations due to industrial activities burning of fossil fuels. Global warming is worrying product of this.
Data from the readings showed a steady increase in CO2 emissions. The map of the world shows low CO2 emission because fossil fuels combustion had not began. Accumulation levels of CO2 increase rapidly over the years especially in the Northern Hemisphere. The annual growth rates of CO2 emissions are an indication of the high amounts of CO2 concentration that have caused the greenhouse effect and therefore contributed to global warming.
