COVID-19 Lockdown Significantly Reduced Anthropogenic Greenhouse Gas Emissions 20 May 2022

COVID-19 Lockdown Significantly Reduced Anthropogenic Greenhouse Gas Emissions

New research illustrates a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions from six North American cities because of a reduction in traffic and economic activities during COVID-19 lockdown.

NOAA’s observations help inform U.S. greenhouse gas emissions reporting for hydrofluorocarbons 25 April 2022

NOAA’s observations help inform U.S. greenhouse gas emissions reporting for hydrofluorocarbons

For the first time, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has included a comparison of NOAA’s atmospheric emission estimates of four hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) to its own inventory-based estimates in the just-released U.S. Inventory of Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Sinks, based on results first reported in the 2017 Geophysical Research Letters study by a team of NOAA, CIRES, and EPA scientists.
