I am going to keep a Carbon Diary. Basically record my Carbon Dioxide Emissions (or equiv) so I can start to understand better what my carbon footprint is and hopefully be able to substantially reduce it.
These are the following areas that I am measuring (units in brackets): Car transport (km travelled), Public transport (km travelled); Electricity (kWh used); Food - will be broken up into Fruit&Veg, Meat, Dairy, Eggs, Packaged&Processed ($ spent); Air travel (km travelled); Other Consumables ($ spent).
I am going to research then what ways there are then to calculate the equiv CO2 emissions from my activities.
Its not going to 100% accurate but I figure its a start...
Be very interested in other thoughts on this action...
