Carbon Monitoring for Action (CARMA)

Carbon Monitoring for Action (CARMA): Launched in 2007, this online map and database presents the best available estimates of CO2 emissions for 50,000 power plants around the world and the identities of the 4,000 firms that own them. Power generation is the single largest source of greenhouse gas emissions, accounting for about one quarter of emissions worldwide, and is highly concentrated, making it potentially easier to address than more diffuse sources.
