Software to Track Cities' Carbon Emissions
Carbon from cars and factories has been lumped into a category of pollution groups called non-point source pollution. Basically, it's easy to point to the fabric manufacturer up the river when the waters turn purple, but it's much harder to pinpoint the source when the power plant emits carbon into the air. The Clinton Foundation has teamed up with Microsoft to develop software that lets cities track their carbon outputs so they can work to reduce levels. The software is set to be released this year, and will be given to cities for free.
