WMO unveils plans for sustainable monitoring of greenhouse gases

"We're wrapping up WMO symposium on Global #GreenhouseGas Monitoring Infrastructure to coordinate surface and satellite observations and support #ClimateAction and #ParisAgreement." The WMO initiative would create a network of ground-based measurement stations that can verify worrying air quality data that’s been flagged by satellites or airplanes, potentially in the next five years. "If we cant measure it, we can't mitigate and adapt." “At present, there is no comprehensive, timely international exchange of surface and space-based greenhouse gas observations,” the UN agency said, as it urged “improved (international) collaboration” and data exchange to support the 2015 Paris Agreement, which provides a roadmap for reduced carbon emissions and climate resilience.

      That's indeed important and just hope the perpetrators will be brought to book.

        There is a need to know where you are coming from, where you are and where you need to be.

          Exactly, if we can't measure it, we can't mitigate it.
