The current practice of burning fossil fuels to provide energy adds carbon dioxide to the atmosphere more rapidly than it is removed. The result, most climate experts agree, is an intensification of the greenhouse effect and an increase in global temperatures. This graph of monthly carbon dioxide concentrations at the Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii, shows an increase of nearly 20 percent from 1958 to 2003. The measurements, made every half hour for approximately 45 years, are considered the most complete and accurate set of readings in the world. A table of monthly values is included.
