SHERLOCK® AND THE ENVIRONMENT

The debate over global warming has finally shifted from whether it is happening (it is) and if human activity is causing it (we are) to what we need to do to avoid the worst consequences of climate change.

The global warming potential of a greenhouse gas is a measurement devised by scientists to describe the relative contributions to the predicted warming of the climate. It is the ratio of the amount of heat trapped by a certain quantity of the gas to the heat trapped by an equivalent quantity of carbon dioxide (CO2) over 100 years. If the gas traps 10 times as much heat as carbon dioxide, then the global warming potential for that gas is 10. The following web links have information regarding the cap and trade policy and issues facing the world today with the climate change and global warming:
