Here’s another carbon calculator for you to try: This one is from the EPA, and has a nice feature that allows you to not only calculate your emissions, but also learn what you can do to reduce your totals through specific actions. I thought this site was better than most in ease of use and allowing you to customize your results in cases of unusual living habits. However, it doesn’t cover lifestyle choices like buying recycled goods, etc. Click the link below to get started on your test… my results are below.
|EPA has developed tools to help individuals (and households) reduce greenhouse
gas emissions and take action. Businesses and organizations interested in educating
their employees and members about what they can do at home to help protect
our climate can also use these tools.
|Use this online calculator to obtain an estimate of your personal greenhouse
gas emissions or your family’s greenhouse gas emissions. Then move on
to the next section of the calculator to explore actions you and/or your family
can take to lower your emissions while reducing your energy and waste disposal
costs. For each action you choose to take, the calculator displays the amount
of emissions you could avoid and how that amount relates to your total emissions.
