Using satellites to monitor ocean acidification

This will probably help us understand the bigger picture. Note particularly the comments in the article that in 2014 the global CO2 emissions were 65% greater than in 1990: despite constant promises to curb CO2 and increase the use of renewable energy. No one is interested! 🙁

    The population of the Earth since 1990 has grown by 38%. So on global scale, the net growth of CO2 emission is ‘only’ 27% during the last 25 years. This 27% increase is the result of increase in living standards and industrialization on first place. During the same period of time (1990-2012 World Bank data) the total area of forests decreased by 5.5%.

        We are in complete agreement Ven. I did not want to reduce the weight of 65% increase of CO2 emission, just mentioned where it came from. That’s why I put only inside apostrophe. But you are right, my comment was misunderstandable.

      Right on the mark thank you Ven, you too Janos. I just noticed another one last night. The Chinese are using heat seeking (sensing) technology to understand the mass movement of their people during this Spring Festival. Today is Chinese New Year ‘Kung Hai Fat Choy’. In other words they can plot where people like to go for this wonderful occasion. I reckon if this is successful we could plot real ‘hot spots’. I bet war zones would rate highly, as would the major cities. Mike
