something smelly this way floats

I try to leave environmental topics to those far more expert than me... However this is something... Wired reports on a new study out of Purdue itemizing the regions that are the biggest producers of CO2. No Pittsburgh MSA county is in the top 20 on their list, but take a look at how many nearby counties are:

4. Cuyahoga, Ohio (Cleveland), 11.144 million tons of carbon per year
14. Jefferson, Ohio (Steubenville), 6.278
15. Indiana, Pa. (Indiana), 6.224

Here is there image of emitters across the US. I took the liberty of blowing up a section for Pittsburgh and the Ohio Valley. Pittsburgh would be somewhere under the 'a' in Cleveland I think.

And if you didn't catch it on PBS' Nightly Business Report last night, they had a segment looking specifically at Pittsburgh's neo-Coal industry.

Funny. I would've thought at least Beaver would have been on there, what with Bruce Mansfield.
