Results of People's Carbon Emissions Tracking Part III


I received comments regarding Sonia's experience attempting to track carbon emissions (left over from the March meeting of Green Drinks in Central Sq. Cambridge).
Unfortunately, my experience tracking carbon emissions was rather a non-event as got rather overwhelmed by the idea of it all. Keeping track of carbon while flying and driving (which I didn’t do in March) while not straightforward, is still easier than calculating food miles, greenhouse heat, and fertilizer application for each thing you put in your mouth.
The trouble is that I’m not really sure it should be simplified though as it is a very complex issue but it puts people off (like me) who prefer an easy way of answering it.
Succinctly put...we are in the very early stages of tracking carbon emissions, at least at a consumer level.
