Carbon Footprint

As well as protesting against government and council inaction on the climate crisis I feel that it is very important that we should reduce our own personal carbon footprint. To do that we need to know what it is.

Here is a website that enables you  to calculate your carbon footprint. You enter details of your household energy consumption, transport, food etc, either as accurate figures such as car mileage and meter readings or as estimates. You are then given your carbon footprint and comparisons with averages for the UK and other countries.

Carbon footprint

You can then set a target of say a 10% reduction in six  months or a year, depending on your circumstances and then measure it again. By reducing our own carbon emissions we set a good example to other people, which is far better than nagging them.
