Introduction to Greenhouse Gas Emissions

In this video, Gordon introduces the Keeling curve, the concentration of carbon in the atmosphere, and the idea that market-based tools such as cap and trade can help us to reorganise our economies to reduce the amount of CO2 being emitted into the atmosphere.
Overview

With levels of CO2 in the atmosphere hitting records we need to use every tool we can to tackle the reorganisation of our economies. Market based approaches are an important tool to help the world deliver on this reorganisation. In this video, we will be discussing carbon (i) pricing, (ii) trading and (iii) markets.

Key learning objectives:

  • Understand what a concentration of 416 ppm mean

  • Understand the concept of greenhouse gases
