GLRPPR Sector Resource: Cool Climate Carbon Footprint Calculator

Cool Climate Carbon Footprint Calculator

The latest edition of the CoolClimate Calculator was created by scientists at the Berkeley Institute of the Environment (BIE) and the Renewable and Appropriate Energy Laboratory (RAEL). The calculator allows not only individuals but households, small businesses, and even cities and municipalities to estimate the amount of carbon dioxide they generate annually based on their mode of transportation and their food, housing, and lifestyle choices, and then compare the results to the footprints of similar households in the nation's 28 largest urban areas.
