The WMO’s annual greenhouse gas bulletin measures concentrations in the atmosphere, not emissions on the ground. It fired a warning for the future.”CO2 is a very stable gas, so it means that there is no sort of chemical reaction which would destroy naturally the CO2 from the atmosphere, so it stays for very long periods, hundreds of years and even more, and that’s why as a consequence the actions we take now, or the actions we don’t take now will have consequences for a very, very long period,” Michel Jarraud, Secretary-General of the World Meteorological Organisation told reporters. The climate system is dominated by the oceans rather than the atmosphere the WMO pointed out and the time needed to warm the seas meant the full impact of today’s figures would only be felt later.
