A friend/fellow Important Media director, Becky Striepe, shared this story with me a few weeks ago. I’ve been dying to get to it but just haven’t. The idea, one I hadn’t really given much thought to, is that the world would probably be a lot more gung-ho about stopping global warming and greenhouse gas emissions if you could see the greenhouse gases.
Well, ABC has, sort of, made that possible.
“The Graphics Department of ABC News, working with technicians from the FLIR camera company, whose special ‘GasfinderIR – GF’ cameras can ‘see’ greenhouse gases, has created artist’s impressions of what it might look like if we could see our greenhouse gas emissions,” ABC reports.
Here’s a video showing a bit of that:
Interesting to watch!
Much more on greenhouse gases, global warming, and why climate scientists are so concerned (if you’d like an intro to all that) is presented at the link above.
