Why This Site?
Other information, such as the average person in the US has an estimated greenhouse emissions of 27 tons of carbon dioxide per year. It also shows ways to reduce emissions and a detailed description of what your footprint means.
Some ways you can reduce your carbon footprint include:

3. Use less electricity (especially when it's necessary)
4. Buy food locally
5. Contribute to organizations that plant trees worldwide
