Transcript of Carbon Footprint
Carbon Footprint by definition is: the amount of carbon dioxide and other carbon compounds emitted due to the consumption of fossil fuels by a particular person, group, etc.
what is happening?
What are we doing about it and what should we be about it?
The carbon footprint concept came into view at a 1979 U.S. Senate energy committee discussion about the “environmental footprint”. Tom Rawls, chief environmental officer for Green Mountain, was supposedly the first to use the term “carbon footprint” in a Seattle Times article, “Carbon Count: Forests Enlisted in Global Warming War,” published November 18, 2000. From there, the term was brought further into view through a 2005 British Petroleum advertising campaign.

If based on the information given from our national carbon footprint we decide to cut down on carbon producing activities, the economy would suffer greatly. This would mean eating less red meat, buying locally or even growing your own food, not buying imported products, and walking or riding your bike as often as possible. All of these activities don’t require as much involvement of others help in order to be done. This has the potential to harm our economy more than it could aid in the restoring of our Earth. For there to be a healthy balance of restoration and maintaining, jobs need to be created in other areas that are not affected by the cut down of activities that emit large amounts of CO2.
Humans are not fully aware of the damage they are causing to the planet everyday...
