Watch This: CO2 Concentrations Unprecedented in Human History

Andrew Revkin brings attention to NOAA’s new graph detailing the recent rise in atmospheric CO2 concentrations in its historical and pre-historical context (it goes back 800,000 years). This is a case of effective data presentation, to say the least.
