Fresh new outlook on carbon footprints
on August 16, 2014
I enjoyed it. The author works for a company that does work with companies, etc. on their carbon footprint so it was cool that he tried to give it a view for the everyday person.
Some people say his assumptions are flawed, BUT he does lay out all his assumptions. He does NOT say that his way is the best or only way. He clearly states that he was trying to come up with a total picture of an item's carbon footprint.
For example, rather than just look at how much energy a refrigerator consumes, he tries to factor in the energy used to manufacture all the materials that go into making the fridge.
I thought it was a fresh new look. He tried to take it a step beyond....here's how much electricity you use every year with your fridge. The TOTAL carbon footprint. I've never seen anyone evaluate it that way, so I enjoyed the fresh outlook
I would recommend it. It's different and thoughtfully put together. Even if you don't agree with his methodology, it's all presented and was thoughtfully arrived at.
