Stanford scientists have learned how to calculate the carbon footprint of grid-scale battery technologies. Stanford researcher Sally Bensen talked about renewable energy sources and said, “As the percentage of electricity from these sources increases, grid operators will need energy storage to help balance supply with demand. To our knowledge, this study is the first to actually quantify the energetic costs of grid-scale storage over time.”
Hello my name is April and i live in Oakland, California. I realized that my home is the thing that contributes the most to my carbon footprint. i didn’t realize it that much, but now I have. I know that at my house we use the television too much, even almost the whole day. We never try to turn it off, and aslo the lights. My brothers love playing with them and they intend to leave them on most of the day. But since I calculated my total footprint, I have helped my family by turning off the T.V. whenever is not needed. By calculating your total footprint, it teaches you or informs you on what to do to switch it around. Everyone should live a better and healthier life. And most of all we need to save the Earth.
Hello, my name is Armando, i am a senior at oakland high school and i am in ESA (envirenmental science academy). we have looked at our carbon footprints and i am verry amazed on how much we pollute in our daily lives. everything we do basically is related somehow to our carbon footprint, wether its traveling or just driving to school, it all effects our carbon footprint and no matter how hard we try to use as less as possible, it is sadly an inevitable action in our lives.
It is true, how if its an item of necessity or a luxury. The result of luxury leads to ignorance and most people desire luxurious obtainables. People aren’t aware of where these items came from. As more people consume/buy, the more of a demand there is for that item, resulting the resources to diminish quickly. Not to mention how these items arrive at their destination with the cost of airplane fuel/car fuel….
I think us kids should get with our communities and see if we can mae a specific easy to get to recycling place for everybody. Then people could recycle things so much easier and you could send emails about it to the parents and the students. or make facebook messages about the place once it is made! It would reduce everyones Carbon footprint
