Calculate your carbon footprint
Have you ever wondered what your carbon footprint is? Check out www.carbonfootprint.com and try the various online calculators for categories such as Car/Flights/House/etc. My old 1991 Toyota Conquest’s annual footprint, for example, is around 1.2 tonnes of CO2 (driving about 6,000km per year), and a single return-trip from Cape Town to Durban produces as much as 6 months worth of driving for me. As an aside, David Beckham is believed to have the largest carbon footprint ever. He owns 15 cars, including a Hummer and a Porsche, and logged over 400 000km flying to and fro for last year’s European Championship qualifiers. Not cool!
