Greenhouse Gas Maps of The United States

The Vulcan Project is a NASA/DOE funded effort under the North American Carbon Program (NACP)to quantify North American fossil fuel carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions at space and time scales much finer than has been achieved in the past.

The video below is a compilation of maps that show the dispersion and concentration of CO2 in the US. The results are not totally surprising, CO2 is being generated where people live. What is interesting are the various factors such as how wind patterns, time of day and sprawl affect concentrations of the greenhouse gas.

This video is already "no longer available"!

Wonder is the Bushies had something to do with its removal.
