My Carbon FootPrints

April 9, 2010

It will be interesting to visualize our Carbon footprint rather than just hear the numbers. Usually, Carbon di oxide emission is mentioned in mass (kgs, tonnes), but what does these numbers mean? CO2 being gas it becomes difficult to visualize in terms of mass rather volume would be much better to visualize. BBC One Planet along with carbonquilt came up with this visualization scheme where they converted statistics to visuals which is easy to relate to and understand.You can try for yourself on carbonquilt.org website to see your carbon footprint. I just tested this and am uploading the output it here. For my Carbon footprint , I used US annual per-capita carbon emission data from 2006 (19 tonnes) and here it is how the volume will look like:

This will how my Carbon footprint quilt will look like around my apartment complex in Cincinnati
