Carbon Footprints

Carbon footprints measure the total amount of greenhouse gases produced to support human activities, expressed in equivalent tons of carbon dioxide. Wolfram|Alpha provides tools for measuring the greenhouse emissions of energy use, heating and travel as well as measuring the impact of different chemicals on the greenhouse effect relative to carbon dioxide.
