Carbon dioxide and pollution, Human-made CO2

Studies show that human emissions of CO2 have grown significantly since the Industrial Revolution. Scientists from the Finnish Meteorological Institute created the first ever maps of human emissions of carbon dioxide using NASA’s orbiting Carbon Observatory-2 as it hovered over earth’s highest emmiting regions : The eastern US, central Europe and East Asia. The maps show widespread emission of CO2 across major urban areas and smaller pockets. OCO-2 is the first satellite to measure the emission of CO2 in details fine enough to create such maps.
