BBC Finally Notices 'Dodgy' Data Behind Bogus Paris Accord


‘Dodgy’ greenhouse gas data threatens Paris accord | Watts Up With That?

From The BBC By Matt McGrath Environment correspondent From the section Science & Environment Potent, climate warming gases are being emitted into the atmosphere but are not being recorded in official inventories, a BBC investigation has found. Air monitors in Switzerland have detected large quantities of one gas coming from a location in Italy. However,…

 "Our estimate for this location in Italy is about 60-80 tonnes of this substance being emitted every year, then we can compare this with the Italian emission inventory, and that is quite interesting because the official inventory says below 10 tonnes or in the region of two to three tonnes," said Dr Stefan Reimann, from the Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology.

"They actually say it is happening, but they don't think it is happening as much as we see. "Just to put it into perspective, this greenhouse gas is thousands of times stronger than CO2. "So, that would be like an Italian town of 80,000 inhabitants not emitting any CO2."

The Italian environment agency told the BBC its inventory was correct and complied with UN regulations and it did not accept the Swiss figures.
