Real-time CO2 emissions


CO2 emissions in real time- an editorial by Prof. Dr. André Butz

In this new editorial for the German Climate Consortium, our co-director Prof. Dr. André Butz explains how greenhouse gas emissions can be measured and visualized how this can be used to communicate climate change.


Professor André Butz measures greenhouse gas emissions on site and makes them visible through images. He is reflecting not only on how this can be used for climate research, but also for communicating climate change. If images of CO2 emissions are available in real-time, can this also accelerate their reduction?
