Greenhouse gas emissions reach record levels in '09-WMO

Nov 24, 2010 12:00 AM

Greenhouse gas emissions reached record levels in 2009, the UN's World Meteorological Organization warned that global warming could set off even greater methane emissions from the Arctic .

"Greenhouse gas concentrations have reached record levels despite the economic slowdown. They would have been even higher without the international action taken to reduce them," said Michel Jarraud, secretary-general of the WMO.
"In addition, potential methane release from northern permafrost, and wetlands, under future climate change is of great concern and is becoming a focus of intensive research and observations."
