Quantifying, Explaining, and Proposing Solutions for emission of the Greenhouse Gas with the Largest Known Warming Potential

A recent study supported by AC4 and COM investigates emissions of the greenhouse gas with the largest known warming potential, updates the understanding of how much we have in the atmosphere, and proposes possible solutions for reducing emissions.

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.
