C02 levels stable or is it a lot of hot air?

In some much needed good news, the levels of C02 in the atmosphere, as a byproduct from fossil fuels and general industry, have stabilised at 36.4 gigatonnes for the 3rd year in a row. After a decade of a steady 2% rise each year, this is a good sign for the fight against climate change.

Additionally, it’s been found that emissions from the US and China have fallen, despite expanding industry and economy. With these two countries being that largest polluters in the world, are we finally seeing a reversal of the damage done to the environment?

Earlier, we were joined by Peter Hannam, Environment Editor at the Sydney Morning Herald to talk more.
