If the invisible was visible

If we could see greenhouse emissions, there would be a lot more action on climate change. That's the theory of David Holmes. So here's what Australia's daily carbon emissions would look like (if CO2 wasn't invisible).

Daily carbon emissions in Australia

A few years ago Eastern Australia experienced a dust storm - and the sky went orange. It was all anyone was talking about. Perhaps if carbon dioxide was purple, we'd see more action on climate change.
