  • Former Vice President Al Gore is looking to partner with Climate TRACE, funded by Google’s nonprofit arm, to use a satellite database to track “individual emitters” of greenhouses gases around the world.
  • The nonprofit coalition uses satellite imaging, remote sensors and artificial intelligence to track greenhouse gas emissions from electricity generation, manufacturing and road traffic.
  • “It’s not far-fetched to think they’re going to look at any human activity or industry as a source of carbon pollution … it’s a very comprehensive and frightening advance for the green agenda,” Marc Morano, publisher of Climate Depot and former senior staffer on the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, told the Daily Caller News Foundation.
