carbon emissionThe Indian Institute of Remote Sensing (IIRS) on Feb 1, 2009 launched the countrys first carbon dioxide measurement exchange tower here in Lamachaur (Uttarakhand) . The installation of the exchange would provide essential data regarding the eco-system exchange, thus providing information to draft policies on environment. IIRS has installed the exchange tower in collaboration with an Italian University. The tower is equipped with four types of sensors, which monitor the degree of carbon dioxide, solely responsible for global warming. India took the first step towards developing a national plan to tackle the effects of global warming and assess its own greenhouse gas emissions, in July last year.
