The researchers managed to find that the most powerful warming, the last time occurred, about 56 million years ago. Then the concentration of carbon dioxide was 1000 parts per million of carbon dioxide. It can be concluded that the planet has become much more sensitive to the rise in Co2 concentration. An article with evidence of this statement appeared on the pages of the journal Nature. To learn about the state of the atmosphere in the past, mostly scientists are turning to the existing samples of Antarctic ice, in which samples of the ancient atmosphere were caught.
