Estimates capitalize on instrumental measurements of CO2 in smokestacks and pollutants in the air by satellites and surface stations Atmospheric scientists at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) and Nanjing University have produced the first "bottom-up" estimates of China's carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, for 2005 to 2009, and the first statistically rigorous estimates of the uncertainties surrounding China's CO2 emissions. The independent estimates, rooted in...
