Submission + - Global CO2 levels rise past worst-case scenarios (washingtonpost.com)

phx_zs writes: Many news sources recently reported on the latest figures from the US government agency CDIAC (Carbon Dioxide Information & Analysis Center), which showed an alarming rise in CO2 levels beyond the IPCC's "worst case scenarios" from 2009 to 2010. Actual data here: http://cdiac.ornl.gov/trends/emis/perlim_2009_2010_estimates.html

Also to note:
"Much of the 5.9% global increase from 2009 to 2010 is due to increased emissions from the world's largest fossil-fuel emitter, the People's Republic of China, where emissions rose 10%"
