Measuring our CO2 emissions - why should we care?
Dr Jocelyn Turnbull

Atmospheric carbon dioxide levels have topped 400ppm and are still rising. New Zealand and the world are still dependent on self-reporting by industry to know our CO2 emissions.

Dr Jocelyn Turnbull leads a new program at GNS Science to measure and model CO2 emissions across a range of different scales including individual power plants, urban and national emissions.

How does the Hutt Valley stack up in terms of global CO2 pollution?

Come along and ask questions to initiate an informed dialogue on the issues that will affect our region by 2100.
