  • Atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) growth has increased 35 per cent faster than expected since 2000, October 23 [8] A team of scientists from the University of East Anglia, the Global Carbon Project and the British Antarctic Survey have found that inefficiency in the use of fossil fuels increased levels of CO2 by 17 percent, while the other 18 percent came from the decline in the efficiency of natural land and ocean sinks which soak up CO2 from the atmosphere. “The decline in global sink efficiency suggests stabilisation of atmospheric CO2 is even more difficult to achieve than previously thought. We found that nearly half of the decline in the efficiency of the ocean CO2 sink is due to the intensification of the winds in the Southern Ocean,” Dr Corinne Le Quéré of the University of East Anglia and British Antarctic Survey. The study also states that global CO2 emissions were up to 9.9 billion tons of C in 2006, 35 percent above emissions in 1990 (used as a reference year in the Kyoto Protocol).
