Scanning a City for Gas Leaks

A joint effort between the nonprofit Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) and Google seeks to turn off needless leaks of a significant greenhouse gas - methane.

Links below tell the story of a recent pilot project that placed air quality sensors on Google Street View cars.
