"Satellites To Track Carbon From Every Power Plant On Earth"

"Three nonprofit organizations will use a network of satellites and artificial intelligence to track carbon emissions from every power plant in the world under a $1.7 million project announced by Google.org. yesterday.

The data gathered will give researchers a better picture of global power plant emissions, particularly in Southeast Asia, where coal consumption is on the rise and emissions data can be shoddy.

The information can be used to hold governments and companies accountable and encourage better emissions reporting, said Durand D'Souza, an analyst at London-based Carbon Tracker Initiative, one of the three organizations behind the project."
