Bay Area neighborhoods carbon map
Christopher Jones, the program director of the CoolClimate Network and first author of a study about the Bay Area carbon inventory says, “This is the most granular carbon footprint assessment anywhere in the world. It includes everything: energy use, transportation, food, goods, services, construction, water and waste. No one has compared neighborhoods like this before.” The research was conducted at UC Berkeley’s Renewable and Appropriate Energy Laboratory, known as RAEL. Daniel Kammen is a co-author and professor of energy and resources and of public policy and director of RAEL.
