What is the Carbon Footprint?

It is defined as the total set of greenhouse gas emissions caused by and individual, organization, event, or product expressed as CO2. These greenhouse gasses are let out into the air by transportation, fuels, land clearance, manufactured products, buildings, and the "production and consumption" of food. There are two types of sources that they can come from from: indirect and direct. The indirect sources consist of fuels being burned in other countries in order to make the products that we buy and consume; The majority of the United States emissions come from this type. The direct sources come from burning the stove or running a car. Because the world needs to know

Life in 2100

This is what our earth is projected to look like in the year 2100 if we keep doing what we are doing with no change in habit, underwater. With our continuous addition of pollution to the atmosphere, in the next 80 plus years our earth is expected to increase by 4.3 degrees Celsius. The rapid increase in temperature will cause the sea levels to rise 2-3 meters. This will then cause states like Louisiana and the smaller countries, mostly small islands to be completely submerged under water.
