Changes in atmospheric carbon dioxide
comparison to the annual flux of carbon dioxide entering the
atmosphere. Because rising carbon dioxide levels have increased the
efficiency of some natural carbon sinks, the net flux of carbon
staying in the atmosphere is currently ~40% lower than fossil fuel
emissions each year.
Carbon dioxide concentrations in the atmosphere over both the last
1000 years and the preceding 400,000 years. Over long times, carbon
dioxide influences and responds to the ice
Contributions to carbon releases from various regions.
History of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere over the last 500
million years. Note that the present day is on the left hand side
of this plot.
Shows the timescales over which emitted carbon dioxide is removed
from the atmosphere. Mixing in the biosphere and oceans remove
70-85% of emissions after 200 years, but the remainder establishes
a new equilibrium that may persist for hundreds of thousands of
Hypothetical emissions scenarios through which atmospheric carbon
dioxide levels might be made to stabilize at specific target
levels. Note that in all cases presented here, carbon emissions
must start to decline before 2100 to reach these targets.
