How do you estimate your carbon footprint?
1 Gallon of Gasoline = 19.4 pounds of CO2
1 Gallon of Diesel Fuel = 22.2 pounds of CO2
1 kWh of Electricity = 1.306 pounds of CO2
1 CCF of Natural Gas = 12.012 pounds of CO2
Example: For an individual who consumes 3 CCF of Natural Gas,
200 kWh of Electricity, and 200 gallons of gasoline in a month:
(they don't use a diesel fuel vehicle)
Approximate Carbon Footprint = 4,177.2 pounds of CO2 per month
Approximate Carbon Footprint = (3 x 12.012) + (200 x 1.306) + (200 x 19.4)
