The Entire World's Carbon Emissions Will Finally Be Trackable In Real Time

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Vox: There's an old truism in the business world: what gets measured gets managed. One of the challenges in managing the greenhouse gas emissions warming the atmosphere is that they aren't measured very well. The ultimate solution to this problem-- the killer app, as it were -- would be real-time tracking of all global greenhouse gases, verified by objective third parties, and available for free to the public.

Tech Firms Hire 'Red Teams.' Scientists Should, Too
