Carbon Footprint

Posted in Cultural Awareness,Evidencial proof,Magazines,Research,Sustainability by emz2687 on October 17, 2007

A Carbon Footprint is the total amount of greenhouse gases (usually CO2) produced to support human activities, for example when driving a car or when heating a house. Greenhouse gases cause global warming.

Your Carbon Footprint is the SUM of all CO2 emissions which came about by any of your activities. Any other gases that are emitted by your activities e.g. methane, are converted into the amount of CO2 that would cause the same effect. Your Carbon Footprint can be calculated taking into account your activities over a year.

Activities that affect carbon footprint include car travel, air travel, boat travel, other motorized transport and electricity use

It’s very important to minimize your carbon footprint and prevent much further damage to the environment. To see how, press here!

Hello!

Its time to start blogging! Or so I’m told! My plan here is to extend my knowledge of all thing knowledgable within design. Over the next year I aim to use my blog as an online diary to record all my experiences concerning design.

Although the theme of this semester is ‘Surviving the 21st Century’, my plan is to investigate as much as possible – relevant to both the theme and to my interests! I’m going to look, listen, see and read EVERYTHING, and plan to make a collection of ANYTHING that may be of use.

I’m looking forward to travelling this journey into knowledge and understanding, hoping creativity, inspiration and influences will give me the ability and drive to design bigger and better things!
