Emissions Map by Climate Trace

It’s a saddening map to look at, but what it shows and how it comes to be is astonishing. Climate Trace tracks carbon emissions down to the level of individual polluting facilities — coal plants, oils fields, cement factories, even cattle feedlots — using satellite data. More than 79 000 emitters all over the globe, tracked in near real time, creating what the New York Times called a «hyperlocal atlas of the human activities that are altering the planet’s chemistry».
