My new post: Greenhouse gases are emitted in manufacturing, shipping, and disposing of all the stuff (food, goods, cars, housing) city-dwellers consume. Some cities are taking these “embodied emissions” seriously — and going after consumption.  https://www.vox.com/energy-and-environment/2019/7/1/18743992/climate-change-cities-food-cars-emissions?utm_campaign=drvox&utm_content=chorus&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter 

Y'all should really check out today's post. ☝️It's about a whole different lens through which to view climate-change responsibility -- and the uncomfortable results that come from it.

Earlier this week I posted about "consumption emissions" -- the GHG emissions embodied in the goods & services you consume. Here's a great post on the @KleinmanEnergy blog on the same subject, with a hyper-local focus.  https://kleinmanenergy.upenn.edu/policy-digests/follow-carbon
