- We estimate carbon dioxide emissions for the 3401 electoral districts of the Republic of Ireland. Consumption emissions dominate total emissions in suburbs and the countryside. Production emissions dominate total emissions in the towns and cities as well as in those electoral districts that have a point source of carbon dioxide. This suggests that new regulation may run into local opposition.
