A recent New York Times article cites CGD's new online database of over 50,000 power plants worldwide. The CARMA, or Carbon Monitoring for Action, database was designed by CGD Senior Fellow David Wheeler.
From the article:
"The global database, charting emissions from 50,000 plants owned by 4,000 companies, is called Carbon Monitoring for Action, with maps and search tools at carma.org. The site, created by the nonprofit Center for Global Development, is billed as 'the world's best place for power-plant voyeurism.'"
