Hey people out there! I’m 16 year old who got introduced to this carbon footprint experiment from AP Biology.
My total footprint was 9036kg compared to California’s whopping 9727kg. My number is still pretty close though.
My home energy CO2 level was crazy high. Kind of scary in now that I can see it in numbers. A big 4751 kg. That is scary everytime I look at it and I didn’t think we were wasting so much!
Transportation isn’t too large. 1889kg, I personally don’t believe it’s huge. My family doesn’t go to a lot of places so, that really affects the numbers here.
Food is 2522 kg. My family generally tries to get locally grown food, at least made in USA food. But we don’t do the composting stuff.
Purchases is 562kg. I don’t really go shopping super often, I don’t even get fancy electronics, I would be lucky if I did get 2 in one year. The number here isn’t surprising at all.
Well, these numbers are SUPER SCARY. Worse than maybe all the horror games I watch on youtube.
