10,000 Years of Carbon Dioxide

A graph reflecting atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations over the last 10,000 years.

Due in large part to the burning of fossil fuels, carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere have now risen about 50% above the preindustrial level. At recent rates of growth, we would reach double the preindustrial by ~2075.
