Towards real-time verification of CO2 emissions ... thoughts on reducing carbon uncertainty / better inform policy
2/3 - Global Carbon Budget 2017 Publication Towards real-time verification of CO2 emissions. If CO2 emissions stay flat for next decades, it would take 10 years before could be detected in the atmospheric record.

Atmospheric CO₂ concentration (blue bars) had record growth in 2015 & 2016 due to record high emissions (black line) & El Niño conditions. Atmospheric growth will be lower in 2017 (red) without an El Niño #COP23 #carbonbudget
Our ability to detect changes in CO₂ emissions based on atmospheric observations is limited by our understanding of carbon cycle variability, taking up to 10 years to confidently detect changes in trends #COP23 #carbonbudget
