More on China SO2

First let’s show the maps that make me so excited

SO2 emissions as seen via satellite:

Now let’s focus on that Chinese plume which I’ve highlighted in green:

SO2_2

Now let’s see the temperature trend map for this area:

SO2_1As you can see, there is an area of cooling at the actual area of emissions, which then turn into warming. And the warming hotspot almost exactly fits the area shown with high levels of SO2. And overlaying them both:

SO2_3And the rough distance from centre of production to centre of the hotspot is 2500miles.

Finally the issue of whether SO2 emissions have gone up or down 2001-2011.
