The analysis shows that its grow higher than the previous year 2014-2015 and it may remains the same or high and may not dip into low level for many generations.
What is the reason told by WMO?
The growth spurt in CO2 was fuelled by the El Niño event, which started in 2015 and had a strong impact well into 2016.
What are the effects of this high level co2emission?
Due to this emission, tropical regions faced droughts and the capacity of “sinks” like forests, vegetation and the ocean to absorb co2 reduced. So there might be a risk of staying emitted co2 in the atmosphere. This will lead major climatic change.
