Ever wonder where all those nasty GHG’s (greenhouse gasses) are coming from? Well, you may be surprised. Just look over your shoulder – they may be right in your back yard!
Introducing Flight GHG (Greenhouse Gases) Mapping
I just discovered this evening, a nifty tool making use of the Google Maps/Earth API overlaid with unique emissions datasets related to fixed source emission points. The EPA calls this clever little sleuth, “FLIGHT” – or “Facility Level Information on GreenHouse gases Tool. The tool allows you to view the US at large, select a state, or do a custom keyword search to create a new map showing fixed emission sources.
I especially liked how, as you zoom in on the map, factories (and their owner’s names, addresses and annual emissions in metric tons) literally “rain” down onto the map.
