Rural Biomass Burning vs. Megacity Industry: Who Emits More CO2 | 5-Day Time-Lapse Video

Scientists are studying the heat trapping behavior of CO2 released by land-clearing and accidental forest fires vs. factories in large urban centers. The data producing this simulation were taken during a 5-day period in June 2006.
