ABSTRACT
This article discusses warnings from climate scientists that international targets for lowering carbon dioxide emissions are too low to avoid environmental consequences. The researchers based their studies on the analysis of sediment cores from the ocean floor. The research showed that that the target level of 350 parts per million of carbon dioxide can be achieved by halting the use of coal and carbon sequestering practices are adopted.
