carbon footprint screenshot

Please submit a screenshot of your your carbon foot print.

A carbon footprint is the total amount of greenhouse gas emissions that come from the production, use and end-of-life of a product or service. It includes carbon dioxide — the gas most commonly emitted by humans — and others, including methane, nitrous oxide, and fluorinated gases, which trap gas in the atmosphere, causing global warming. Usually, the bulk of an individual’s carbon footprint will come from transportation, housing and food.

You can start the process by calculating your carbon footprint here. You will need to know the following:

If you are unable to use the previous link, please use a carbon footprint calculator you can access. Let us know in your discussion that you used another one. Below is the EPA carbon footprint calculator. It is ok if it is a little different.
