Hello people of the world. I have recently discovered my carbon footprint and would like to share it with the world.
Transportation: 1879 Kg CO2
Home, Energy, etc : 6523 Kg CO2
Food: 1183 Kg CO2
Purchases: 699 Kg CO2
I believe that i can change my footprint by driving less and commuting with others more often.

Hello, I’m Matt from Pennsylvania. I go to Sun Valley High School in Aston, Pa. My usage for transportation is 2994 kg, home energy is 6873 kg, food is 3717, purchases is 660 kg. One way I can change is use less energy at home like unplugging electronics like chargers when I am not using them to save energy.

    Good idea ! you can also turn off the lights for half day and that way u save energy too and help the planet once per month is fine if you would like to try it or whatever works for you.

Hello, I’m Andrew and I’m from Sun Valley High School in PA, USA. I’m glad to be apart of the ISCFC and just calculated my carbon footprint. My footprint is 28,557 lbs which is a lot and i feel like i could do much better to help out. Its lower than my states average which is good but i feel like it is so much which is mind blowing if so many people put this much carbon into the atmosphere. I want to get a lower carbon footprint so I am going to try to lower it by turning off all the lights and keeping my temperature at a more reasonable temperature.

Darrin B. Philadelphia PA; Sun Valley High
My carbon footprint totals are
4718 lbs for transportation
12497 lbs for home energy
10866 lbs for food
545 lbs for purchases
One way I could change my ways are to talk to my family about turning off lights when we aren’t in the room or when we don’t need them

Will H-USA, Oct. 3, 2013

In my mind, the only true way to reduce our carbon foot print is to limit the amount of fossil fuels and other nonrenewable energies. This, however, is really only a hope, as there does not seem to be an indication of this coming at any time. In this way, I only see fit that people learn more about their footprints (learn more about what affects it) and ways in which they can help reduce it. Simple things like keeping a car tunes up, regulating the thermostat or even going vegetarian can chip away at that ghastly carbon total. Carbonfund.org has many great ideas to help regular people reduce their carbon footprint in hopes for the future.

    Will, thanks for the link. Sometimes it is hard to imagine how we might lower our carbon footprints, and the suggestions at the link help. Things will probably be very different in 100 years, either because the climate has changed dramatically or because our carbon output and energy use has changed dramatically. Or both. Changing the world's energy system is a tall order, but I think it starts with individuals recognizing the need and doing what they can. This normalizes the conservation and helps build the social awareness that can become a true movement for systemic change.

    Thanks for the feedback. I agree with what you are saying, the community that builds from global awareness is ultimately what makes changes that will ensure our future and survival. Hopefully, our youth will inspire each other and spark the needed change in our world.

What we can do?
The goal is to bring global warming under control by curtailing the release of carbon dioxide and other heat-trapping “greenhouse” gases into the atmosphere.

We can contribute to this global cause with personal actions. Our individual efforts are especially significant in countries like the US and Canada, where individuals release over 10,000 pounds of carbon dioxide per person every year.

We can help immediately by becoming more energy efficient. Reducing our use of oil, gasoline and coal also sets an example for others to follow.
