Carbon dioxide levels over the last 300,000 years are visualized

Reddit user heresacorrection visualized carbon dioxide levels over the last 300 thousand years, using National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration data.

The graph shows the amount of CO2 estimated in the atmosphere (units: parts per million). Outside of a few hundred years ago, the rest is gathered from ice cores.


Carbon dioxide levels over the last 300 thousand years

On the graph before the peak caused by the current rapid change results from human activity, you can see another rise in the Bølling–Allerød interstadial period (126440 BC).

The Bølling–Allerød was a sudden warm and moist interstadial period during the last stages of the last glacial period (14,690 - 12,890 BP).

During this period, estimates of carbon dioxide rise are 20–35 ppmv within 200 years, a rate less than 29–50 percent compared to the anthropogenic global warming sign from the past fifty years.

Data gathered from the Gulf of Alaska show abrupt sea-surface warming of about three °C (in less than 90 years). Global sea level raised about 16 meters throughout this period at speeds of 26–53 millimeters per year.

Moose population in North America

The moose ( Alces alces ) is the largest member of the deer family, characterized by its massive size, long legs, and distinctive broad, palmate antlers found in males. They have a dark brown or black coat and a humped shoulder. Moose are primarily found in the boreal and mixed deciduous forests of North America, Europe, and Asia. They are solitary animals, often found near bodies of water, and are herbivores that feed on leaves, bark, twigs, and aquatic vegetation. Despite their size, moose are strong swimmers and can run up to 35 miles per hour. The moose population in North America is shrinking swiftly. This decrease has been correlated to the opening of roadways and landscapes into this animal's north range.   In North America, the moose range includes almost all of Canada and Alaska, the northern part of New England and New York, the upper Rocky Mountains, northern Minnesota and Wisconsin, Michigan's Upper Peninsula, and Isle Royale.    In 2014-2015, the North American moo

Map of Fox Species Distribution

Foxes are small to medium-sized members of the Canidae family, which also includes wolves, dogs, and other related animals. There are about 37 species of foxes distributed around the world, and they inhabit a wide range of environments, from forests and grasslands to deserts and urban areas. Below is the map of fox species distribution  created by Reddit user isaacSW Here are some of the most well-known fox species and their distribution: Red Fox ( Vulpes vulpes ): The red fox is one of the most widely distributed fox species and is found in North America, Europe, Asia, and parts of North Africa. They are adaptable and can live in a variety of habitats, including forests, grasslands, and urban areas. Arctic Fox ( Vulpes lagopus ): The Arctic fox is found in the Arctic regions of North America, Europe, and Asia. They have adaptations that help them survive in cold climates, such as a thick coat that changes color with the seasons. Gray Fox ( Urocyon cinereoargenteus ): The gray fox
