EPA maps the worst greenhouse gas offenders

EPA maps the worst greenhouse gas offenders | green infographics | Scoop.it
The EPA has organized its data on major greenhouse gas emitters into a handy interactive map. You can zoom in on your area to see where the emissions come from near you, or scan around for the worst offenders.

This map covers facilities that emit 25,000 metric tons or more of GHGs every year, so it's not like this map shows the sources of all of the country's emissions. There's no transportation, or residential, or agricultural facilities represented. But you're looking at more than half of the United States' GHGs, including all the major polluters.

Infographic: deforestation and greenhouse gas emissions

Because trees help absorb greenhouse gases, forest preservation plays an important role in controlling climate change. When forests are destroyed or degraded that harms our ability to control climate change. A new report from the Congressional Budget Office says there are three big challenges: building capacity to better document forest absorbtion capacity and its loss; improving governance in countries where the problem is most pronounced; and calibrating policy responses so they’re effective on a global scale. The study is titled “Deforestation and Greenhouse gases.”
