Michael Bloomberg has big plans for how to turn New York City into a shining example of sustainable urbanism, but the more fanciful (and awesome) parts of his plans can't go forward without a solid grounding in practical information. This map should do a lot to fill the gap: It breaks down energy consumption in the Big Apple, block by block, by quantity and use.Modi says, comes from oil and natural gas.
The idea is that now all of this information is in one easy to browse map, it will be easier to estimate the worth and impact of energy-reducing policies. Where will new regulations for heating oil have the most impact? Can wind power make a serious dent in energy consumption? Now that the groundwork has been laid, let the wild-eyed schemes begin.
