NYC Carbon Footprint 1.72 tons/second by Carbon Visuals
Static Preview

NYC carbon footprint: 54,349,650 tons a year = 148,903 tons a day = 6,204 tons an hour = 1.72 tons a second

In 2010 New York City added 54 million metric tons of carbon dioxide (equivalent) to the atmosphere, but that number means little to most people because few of us have a sense of scale for atmospheric pollution.

Carbon Visuals and Environmental Defense Fund make carbon emissions feel a bit more real - the total emissions and the rate of emission. Designed to engage the 'person on the street', this version is exploratory and still work in progress.

Putting a Social Price on Carbon by Maggie Fox
Static Preview

The Social Cost of Carbon estimates the monetary damages that result from carbon pollution -- essentially putting a value on the effects of climate change that are already costing us today. Webinar presentation (audio) by Maggie Fox.

The Obama Administration requires agencies to factor in these damages when making new policies. After careful scientific analysis, the current estimate was increased to $37 per metric ton of carbon pollution.

But Big Oil and Big Coal oppose this increase, attempting to reduce the social cost of carbon so that they can continue polluting recklessly.
