Information is power and as it turns out power equals emissions. Or at least that’s what a new comprehensive database of the United States’ 6,700 biggest stationary emitters put together by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) says. According to the new EPA database, power plants were the largest stationary sources of direct emissions with an incredible 2.3 billion metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent in 2010 alone. With the EPA recently putting new emissions reduction laws into action, this database should be a great resource for businesses to identify those leading emissions reductions and shed light on exactly how they’re managing to make it work. Incidentally it is also a great resource to find out who the nasty emitters around you are. Check it out for yourself: the EPA has now compiled the data and put it online in this super fun online emissions tool . Go ahead and type in your zip code and see who your closest emitters are – the culprits might surprise you.
