My Carbon Footprint

I figured my carbon footprint on the Inconvenient Truth Carbon Footprint Calculator. I’m larger than average. I’m amazed because I do the following:

  • Use public transportation a few days a week
  • Drive at or under the speed limit
  • Combine trips
  • Put the thermostat at 76 degrees in the summer and at 68 degrees in the winter
  • Turn out lights whenever possible
  • Started converting my incandescent light bulbs to compact fluorescent ones
  • Stopped drinking bottled water and sodas

I can’t imagine what my carbon footprint would be if I drove an SUV.
