California's Greenhouse Gasses

The top 100 carbon dioxide-producing facilities in our state as of 2007 are posted here on an interactive map with the listings, provided by California Watch. These are the kinds of sources for which the State is accountable with the CO2 measurements and subsequent reduction requirements, which far outstrip traffic emissions. Add to that the emissions for housing and development, which also subtract from the earth's ability to absorb carbon, and you have an equation for a system far out of balance.
