One of the challenges in reducing emissions and air pollutants is that individuals have a hard time seeing how their own behaviour is affecting the environment. The UK’s National Atmospheric Emissions Inventory takes a step in the direction of focusing the responsibility for emissions to a more local level. The NAEI offers a number of different maps of the UK showing emission sources for various chemicals as well as providing rather large Excel files that pinpoint the sources even further. Emissions levels can also be searched by postal code. Data is mostly from 2003.

In a related news story, the News Telegraph talks about a UK carbon map developed by the NAEI and the Carbon Trust. The map(s) reflect emission levels per square kilometre which can be deceiving as emission levels probably correlate to population density to an extent.
