Seasonal fluctuation in atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) at the Mauna Loa Observatory.

From 2000 to 2010 emissions were the highest in history. Historical emissions have driven atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide to levels that are unprecedented in at least the last 800,000 years, leading to an uptake of energy by the climate system. Natural and anthropogenic substances and processes that alter the Earth’s energy budget are physical drivers of climate change. Radiative forcing quantifies the perturbation of energy into the Earth system caused by these drivers.
