Some researchers from the Purdue University have made up a project revealing the CO2 emissions over the United States. They made a video showing the “hottest” areas in which CO2 is produced by several sources: power plants, factories, vehicle traffic. Kevin Gurney, the leader in the project, told The New York Times: “The resulting database and maps provide a view of the “industrial metabolism” of our combustion-powered lives”.
The project is named “Vulcan” and has been sponsored by NASA and the Department of Energy. Watch the movie and the explanations below:
