What is this blog about?

We are destroying the planet at an alarming rate. It's happening due to the ignorance of the world we live in, and in our age of online data access and sharing there is really no excuse for that any more.

This blog investigates novel ways of looking at large datasets. The kind everyone should care about.

This is my personal blog. The views expressed on these pages are mine alone and not those of my employer.

Worldwide power plant carbon emissions

I've been working with carma.org on putting their information about power plants in Google Earth, and they just posted the KML and wrote a blog post about it.

I'm presenting this tomorrow at a poster session at the American Geophysical Union fall meeting in San Francisco.

Cool! Carma is a real nice resource. I've taken their country summaries and created a nice flash based map on my blog: http://blogs.edf.org/climateatlas/

I also used the Vulcan project's US county summaries to show per capita and total emissions summaries.

I've noticed some power station icons are a little off in Google Earth. Here are the exact positions:

Loy Yang A: -38.254331,146.574170
Loy Yang B: -38.256862,146.586415
Hazelwood: -38.272705,146.391662
Yallourn: -38.177319,146.343491

Keep up the good work.

Thanks, Mark, I've forwarded the corrections to Carma.
