Carbon Pollution Calculator
There's a lot of talk these days about the likelihood that "greenhouse gases," the most common of which is carbon dioxide (CO2), will cause the Earth's climate to significantly change. If you're like most Americans, each time you drive your car, hop on a plane, flick on a light, or consume energy in other ways, you contribute in a small way to this effect.
Curious how much? This worksheet allows you to easily tally up your own personal "carbon budget."
For more information, take a look at our fact sheet on Environmental Pollutants and Electricity Production.
The Carbon Pollution Calculator is sponsored by the Texas State Energy Conservation Office (SECO). The calculator can also be accessed at Martindale's Calculators On-Line Center, along with other energy calculators.
