Abstract

CO2 emissions from human activities, the main
contributor to global climate change, are set to rise
again in 2014 reaching 40 billion tonnes CO2

The natural carbon ‘sinks’ on land and in the ocean
absorb on average 55% of the total CO2 emissions,
thus slowing the rate of global climate change

Increasing CO2 in the oceans is causing ocean
acidification
