At mospheric CO2 soars to record heights in spite of global pandemic

Scientists have been monitoring the concentrations of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere from Hawaii since 1958, and have plotted a steadily accelerating upward curve in that time. Measured as parts per million (ppm), concentrations of below 350 ppm are what experts consider safe to preserve a livable planet, but data from monitoring stations has shown we are now well beyond that point.

Good! We're gonna need all this extra CO2 because farmers are plowing crops under - the Coronavirus. When we get going again, we will need all the crops we can get to avoid starving. CO2 helps crops to grow - the more the better.
