Map of U.S. Carbon Emissions

Vulcan Project Carbon Footprint Map The Vulcan Project, which quantifies North American carbon dioxide emissions, has released maps that shows U.S. CO2 emissions at 100-kilometre resolution — far more detailed than previous efforts. The maps are also updated more frequently. Their most notable finding is that the southeastern U.S.’s carbon footprint is bigger than expected, whereas the northeast’s is smaller.
