We’ve updated the animation of the Keeling Curve to include recent measurements and the surpassing of a new milestone: Global carbon dioxide levels in the global atmosphere as measured at the Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii surpassed 415 parts per million of carbon dioxide in May.

Monthly average surpassed 414 parts per million at Mauna Loa Observatory
Peak carbon dioxide levels surpass 411 parts per million for May
In honor of the 60th anniversary of the Keeling Curve, Ralph Keeling of the Scripps CO2 Program shows how scientists make carbon dioxide measurements and gives a guided tour of the original instruments his father, Charles David Keeling, developed to start the famous record known as the Keeling Curve. In 2018, carbon dioxide levels are expected to exceed 410 parts …
Strategies sought to mitigate greenhouse gases
Leader of Keeling Curve measurement says temporary bump from El Niño could push atmospheric CO2 levels above symbolic threshold for good
Scripps Institution of Oceanography drew the world’s preeminent experts in the measurement of greenhouse gases
Scripps Oceanography lab monitoring atmospheric CO2 named National Historic Chemical Landmark
The story of the Keeling Curve is beautifully animated in this new video. The American Museum of Natural History will host a Google+ Hangout Sept. 9, 2014 on the topic of the Keeling Curve. [youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Z8g-smE2sk&w=560&h=315]
So we’ve reached 400 ppm.… Now what happens?
Carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas produced by natural processes and everyday human activities, especially the burning of fossil fuels. The Keeling Curve is a measurement of the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere made atop Hawaii’s Mauna Loa since 1958.
