Everyday in the course of our normal lives each of us is adding to the emission of greenhouse gases. One of the main factors changing the earth's climate is greenhouse gases. The choices that each of us makes in how we live our lives has a direct impact on how much carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases are created each year. Choices in home construction, the foods we eat, energy consumption, what we buy and what we throw away have a direct impact on the environment.
The Nature Conservancy has an online carbon footprint calculator designed to measure how your personal lifestyle contributes to the global climate. Click here to use the calculator.
We are seeing an increase in awareness of how our home choices affect the environment. As a result we are seeing the construction of more "green" homes.
