ABSTRACT
The author discusses the need of measuring the climate change. According to her, the data obtained from monitoring carbon coming from automobile emissions and others does not give accurate result of their impact on climate. She further explains that the Centre for Carbon Management will deal with these climate issues and work for the development of those technologies which will lower the carbon emission and support the instruments for carbon pricing and trading.
