The data depicted in this mashup has been extracted by a spreadsheet produced by AEA for the UK Department of Energy and Climate Change DECC. The data provides a nationally consistent carbon dioxide emission estimates at local authority and regional level and it has been compiled using the publication of local gas, electricity and road transport fuel consumption estimates by DECC for 2005 to 2007. In this mashup the total CO2 emissions are reported by NUTS4 area. The value of emissions for a region has been normalised by the area of the region itself in order to provide a more realistic rendering of the degree of pollution for that area.
UK CO2 Emissions Visualization

In the European Union, LAUs are basic components of Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics (NUTS) regions. For each EU member country, two levels of Local Administrative Units (LAU) are defined: LAU-1 and LAU-2, which were previously called NUTS-4 and NUTS-5 respectively, until the NUTS regulation went into force in July 2003. For some countries, the LAU-1 level is not defined, and thus equivalent to the NUTS-3 level. A similar statistical system is defined for the candidate countries and members of the European Free Trade Association.(more)
Areas for which data are available are show on the map. The intensity of the color of the region indicates the level of pollution for that area. Click on a region on the map or in the selection to view details about that region. The chart shows the distribution of the total amount of population according to cause. Clicking on the region shows the total amount of CO2 pollution
