'Hestia' Software Measures Urban Carbon Emissions

Sustainability Scientist Kevin Gurney and fellow researchers developed a software that models specific greenhouse gas emissions at the city level. Named Hestia after the Greek goddess of the hearth and home, the program uses data from local cities to measure and pinpoint emissions from specific urban infrastructures like individual buildings and roads. This video explains the measuring process step-by-step and compares emissions in Indianapolis during certain times of the day.
