ABSTRACT
The article discusses a study by a class at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) that indicates that Americans emit carbon dioxide more than residents of other nations. Mechanical engineering professor Timothy Gutowski noted that an environmental lifestyle analysis (ELSA) system used by the class revealed that emission rates were related to income and that there was a certain limit no Americans ranked below.
