People made more CO2 last year - level 3

Some people believe that global warming is a real problem. Politicians discuss global warming very often and they try to reduce the amount of CO2 people release. However, the CO2 production is on the increase.

Last year people produced more CO2 than ever in the history. It was 564 tons more than the year before. The biggest producers of CO2 are still China, the USA and India. People produce a lot of CO2 because they burn coal to make electricity.

CO2 is not dangerous for a human organism. But scientists say it is a key part of greenhouse gases which warm up our planet.
