The amount of heat-trapping carbon dioxide in the air jumped dramatically in 2012, making it very unlikely that global warming can be limited to another 2 degrees as many global leaders have hoped, new federal figures show.
The world's air has reached what scientists call a troubling new milestone for carbon dioxide, the main global warming pollutant.
But, Tans tells The Associated Press the major factor is ever-rising fossil fuel burning: "It's just a testament to human influence being dominant."
"The prospects of keeping climate change below that (2-degree goal) are fading away," Tans says.
