Now, the Megacities Project an international pilot project involving universities, as well as city, state, federal and international agencies is working to improve local carbon monitoring and modeling to find out, in detail, where carbon emissions originate. This type of information will help cities understand what sectors unique to them contribute the most to their greenhouse gas emissions. Learn how megacities such as Paris and Los Angeles are taking the initiative to reduce their carbon emissions online at http://www.earthmagazine.org/article/carbon-and-city-tracking-emissions-megacities.
