Welcome to Shaping The Future and in this episode, I am talking to the Secretary-General of ICOS - The Integrated Carbon Observation System, Dr. habil. Werner L. Kutsch.
ICOS is a network of ocean and ground-based carbon monitoring stations that is giving us a wide spread of open-source scientific data, expanding our understanding of our changing environment.
Werner talks about how ICOS data can explain the collapse of a carbon sink from a summer drought, as much as it can lead us towards cleaner air in cities and resilience to the climate impacts coming our way.
Also in the making, is a global system measuring & analysing atmospheric gases, that will, politics permitting, progress humanity towards a future that benefits all living creatures within the biosphere.
