Nitrous emissions

Post by bob sterman » Tue May 31, 2022 6:31 am

Can anyone explain the basis for the carbon emission claims here...

Linking nitrous oxide to climate risk is yet another example of the disdain shown to women’s pain
https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfr ... omens-pain

The report itself is very unclear....

Carbon footprint of nitrous oxide (‘laughing gas”) should be explained to patients, anaesthetists say
https://www.anzca.edu.au/resources/medi ... a-2022.pdf

"UK anaesthetist Dr Fiona Pearson say nitrous oxide is a potent greenhouse gas with "much higher carbon gas emissions than other anaesthetic alternatives"

Are they talking about the direct effects of nitrous oxide in the atmosphere? Or the carbon emissions produced while manufacturing and distributing nitrous oxide?
