Google will give data on the greenhouse gas emissions of cities


Google has begun to estimate experimentally the greenhouse gas emissions of five cities, including Pittsburgh, Buenos Aires and Mountain View in California (where its headquarters are located). The goal is to provide a complete map of the emissions of all the cities in the world. 

The American site The Atlantic writes it. 


"The first step in tackling climate change is to create an emissions log," said Saleem Van Grenou, Google Earth's manager. "Understanding your situation on a city scale, and understanding what you can do for this is a problem with information. and this is a good place for Google to position itself ". 


Van Grenou did not give more information about the program.


He only said that the project is to expand coverage to all the cities in the world. "What we expect - he explained - is an open search bar for users, where to find their city".
