The figure was published by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), marking the first overflow during post-industrial era. Although numerous measures were taken to combat the growth of these figures, the concentration of CO2 continues to rise globally.

The news came a few months before the important meeting in Paris regarding climate change, a meeting to be attended by world political leaders on climate evolution. The United Nations Conference to be held in December will focus on the implementation of regulations that will aim to limit climate warming.
