Mar 2016 research:  Human carbon release rate is unprecedented in the past 66 million years of Earth's history at about 10 times faster  
  Although Human industrial age  emissions are about 4% of natural CO2 emissions, due the very long  atmospheric lifetime of CO2 this is resulting in a rapidly accelerating level of atmospheric CO2 s text.
