Environmental Issues

Your carbon footprint is the amount of greenhouse gasses you produce in a year. If you have been wondering how much that is, you can work it out with BP’s carbon footprint calculator.

At the end of the process, you are given the number of tonnes of CO2 you generate in a year and can compare this to your country’s average. Click “What you can do” and “Quiz” on the left of the site to find suggestions on ways you can cut down your CO2 emissions.

On a similar theme the Climate Cops from NPower help teach children about saving energy in a fun and engaging way. There is also a site for adults with energy saving tips.
