The Columbus area ranks near the top of a nationwide list for its per-capita carbon emissions, according to a study released this week.
A study by the Washington, D.C.-based Brookings Institution titled “Shrinking the Carbon Footprint of Metropolitan America” quantified the per-capita emissions from transportation and residential energy use in 2000 and 2005. The think tank found Columbus’ per-capita carbon emissions were the 18th-highest among the nation’s 100 largest metropolitan areas.
