Carbon Monoxide (CO), a poisonous, odorless and colorless gas, is produced by incomplete combustion of fossil fuels and biomass burning.
It is a strong greenhouse gas and contributes to global warming. It is one of the longest-lived, naturally occurring atmospheric carbon compounds. In the atmosphere CO is produced when Methane reacts with atmospheric hydroxyl(OH) in the troposphere. The recent change in tropospheric CO content may portend a change in the balance between oxidants and reductants in the atmosphere.
