ABSTRACT
Urbanites have a smaller carbon footprint, nearly half the national average, than those in the suburbs, say UC Berkeley researchers. But the benefits from reduced carbon emissions of city dwellers are canceled by high emissions from the suburbs, with suburbanites having a carbon footprint twice the national average. Household income, vehicle ownership and home size are factors in the amount of greenhouse gas emissions. In Calif., motor vehicles accounted for the largest amount of emissions.
