GENEVA, Nov 9 (Reuters) - Greenhouse gas levels in the atmosphere reached a record high in 2014 and the relentless fuelling of climate change is endangering the planet for future generations, the World Meteorological Organization said on Monday.
"Every year we say that time is running out. We have to act NOW to slash greenhouse gas emissions if we are to have a chance to keep the increase in temperatures to manageable levels," WMO Secretary-General Michel Jarraud said in a statement.
His annual plea for the world to do whatever it can to cut greenhouse gas emissions - which come mainly from burning fossil fuels and from agriculture, cement production and deforestation - comes weeks before negotiators from over 190 states convene in Paris to try to agree a new U.N. climate deal.
Graphs issued by the WMO, a U.N. agency, showed levels of carbon dioxide, the main greenhouse gas, climbing steadily towards the 400-parts-per-million (ppm) level, having hit a new record every year since reliable records began in 1984.
I think the RNC should pour money into looking into this.
They are what you would call "Dead Wood".
Another Nobel Prize or is there room on Mount Rushmore?
One of the Best President's ever.
Politicians should take a cue from the Pope, and downsize their extravagant ways.
Good point. Well, at least Jimmy Carter walked the walk and put solar panels on the White House. They were there until Ronald Reagan bent over for Big Oil and Big Coal and had them dismantled. It was cool to see at least one politician stand up to corporate rapists.
Nope, going out to a nice restaurant with a bunch of friends. Will have fun celebrating and talking about Obama's victory for America!

Maybe we should overlook his lying problems.
Every human lies. Republicans tried to make it a scandal when they were so shocked that Obama lied. They all lie. Get over it.
