ABSTRACT
This article presents various diagrams of the negative effects of global warming and how they interrelate. Included are charts on rising sea-levels and carbon dioxide emissions, rates of polar ice melts and the effects on earth's absorption of larger amounts of sunlight, and a steady rate of climbing temperatures.

    The estimated global CO2 emission rates and the measured atmospheric CO2 concentrations show that only a certain share of the emitted CO2 accumulates in the atmosphere. For given atmospheric emissions of CO2, the effective lifetime determines its accumulation in the atmosphere and, consequently,...
