  • Chemistry of the Atmosphere - Carbon Footprints
    • CARBON FOOTPRINTS are TRICKY to MEASURE
      • Definition - A MEASURE of the amount of CARBON DIOXIDE and other GREENHOUSE GASES are released over the FULL LIFE CYCLE of something.
      • MEASURING the total carbon footprint of something is REALLY HARD or IMPOSSIBLE.
        • Because of DIFFERENT FACTORS
    • REDUCING CARBON FOOTPRINT
      • Use RENEWABLE ENERGY SOURCES or NUCLEAR ENERGY instead of FOSSIL FUELS
      • Governments could TAX based on amount of GG's they EMIT. Meaning people buy more FUEL-EFFICIENT stuff.
        • Also put a CAP on emissions of ALL GG's a company makes.
