Hey everyone! I’m Karly from North Adams High School. When I did my carbon calculations I was surprised everything was lower than the average except my transportation. Wow, my transportation was extremely high compared to the average but it’s understandable because of sports I play and living out of the city, you have to drive at least 15min. to get to anything. Any ideas on how to reduce it? Just post if you do.

My name is Ryan, I live in the United States. After taking my carbon footprint survey my eyes were opened. I didn’t realize until only a week ago how important it was to reduce are global carbon footprint. It sort of scared me when I found out that I had the highest footprint for my area; mine was higher than all my friends too.
I hope that by us all working together we all can help ourselves in reduceing the amount of carbon we use. We do not want our children to live in a vast waste land, do we? So let us take action and help ourselves imrove how we live, so we can save the Earth!!!!!!!!!!
p.s. Sebastian, Brittany, and Ali, where are you!!!!
when playing around with the calculator, i realized how high my carbon footprint is due to all the flights i make across the globe to visit my family in southern africa. i also realized how drastically the footprint decreased when changing meat quantites.
i would thus like to promote locally produced goods that can be transported within a country with environmental friendly veichles.
By promoting days like Meat Free mondays, which really isnt very hard because you do survive one meet free day per week, its not very much at all, and buying locally produced meat, we can make a huge difference on our co2 emissions!
ofcourse the problem remains that not everything can be produced everywhere at all times, but better start where we can instead of doing nothing! daily life changes is the most important factor in improving our results and reducing our co2 emissions. recycling papers and waste materials, turning off the tap when not using water while brushing our teeth, filling the dishwasher BEFORE turning it on will make a difference. dont wait for them big politicans and environment people to come up with a big fancy solution that will cause a paradyme shift in our society and ways of living, when doing things that should be obvious to us can make a huge difference immediately!
