The carbon footprint of some of the world’s biggest cities is 60 percent larger than previously estimated when all the products and services a city consumes are included, according to a new analysis. The world’s cities emit 70 percent of the world’s carbon dioxide and that’s likely higher when consumption emissions are included. Too pessimistic for a healthier future of Earth.

I live in Mexico City and wow does it get bad at times. Some times there's so much pollution you can barely make out the mountains in the distance.
