4:30 PM - 5:00 PM BEYOND THE CLOUDS: RDE AND ATMOSPHERIC SCIENCE

Jörg Steinwagner, Research Scientist, University of Utrecht, The Netherlands
After industrialization the age of personal mobility for everyone begun. Shortly after that, science found evidence that there is a high price for that mobility. Smog, acid rain, ozone, carbon dioxide / climate change, CO, CH4, aerosols, small particle emissions became all as well areas of research for atmospheric scientists as they are working areas for industry. One next step in industrial development will be a carbon free economy potientally based on hydroxyl. However, from the past it is implicit that every global technology has an impact on our environment. What are the lessons learned from past in this respect?
