Scientists consider carbon dioxide production to be one of the trigger factors for climate change.
With this app you can explore ways to to reduce your carbon footprint by changing aspects of your lifestyle and seeing, in real time, the effect on total carbon used.
There are many more detailed calculators but they can take a long time to use, this app can be completed in minutes to give a rough idea of things you could change.
The app is stand alone and does not require web access.
If you have a small screen you will need to scroll sideways to see the results.
How low can you get your carbon production?
The basic data is from a Carbon Trust report.
Vervios Carbon Calc is a simple, easy-to-use application that allows you to estimate your annual carbon dioxide emission resulting from your automobile travel. It allows you to enter your round-trip commute distance, vehicle's fuel consumption and the number of trips made each week so as to calculate your 'Carbon Footprint'.
The app allows for both Metric or Imperial units, and offers options for either Diesel or Gasoline (Petrol) fuel. This application is for educational and entertainment use only as the calculations are only estimates.
Carbon Geiger is to carbon emissions what the Geiger counter is to radioactivity: it lets you know when you are in the vicinity of one of the giant emitters. We have lots of data on them - exactly how much they emit each year, who owns them, and how many pollution permits they have been given that allow them to carry on. We even know where they are buying any 'carbon offsets' from to meet their targets.
Carbon pollution isn't yet seen in the same light as radiation pollution but who knows one day it may be - and being able to track down who's responsible will be an important tool for civil society to demand action to stop this threat.
Through a number of examples included within the tool, users can estimate the carbon footprints of different food products, packaging, etc. For example, by selecting different food ingredients, sources of energy for cooking or transportation distances, it is possible to find out which options have the lowest carbon footprints.
With a straightforward and intuitive user-interface, the tool is simple to use by those new to the concept of carbon footprinting.
