I'm about 99% sure it's plasticniki, but now chris_is_cool is back, I'm not so sure
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX Thread CLOSED XXXXXXXXXXXX
has a bigger carbon footprint that I do.
Your "unnecessary" 8 short haul flights so *far* this year (I went London to Berlin) add up to about the same CO2s as my low mileage, low emission car for a YEAR.
You should ditch the car btw, completely unnecessary in this day and age.
And have never owned a car.
And I'd estimate 50% of my clients would be practically inaccessible without a car. Bristol to Stroud, for example, would be two trains and a 5 mile cycle (about 2 hours in total) or 45 minutes in the car.
you massive hypocrite, haven't you ever heard the saying when you point your finger at someone there's 3 pointing back at you, which means your carbon footprint is 3 x niki's!
but this is total bullshit im afraid niki.
I read somewhere once about the amount that a return long haul flight would increase the average American's annual carbon footprint and it was quite staggering. I can't remember the figure but it was more than 10%, possibly something like 30%.
So far this year my carbon emissions for the flights I've taken total 1.25 tonnes.
How many miles do you drive a year?
We're talking the last year.
I have only really been on the roads for the last 18 months or so as I get a car and fuel with this job and have to transport child. Before that I hadn't had a car for over a decade.
Have I said I've offset my carbon footprint for the last 5 years or so?
So you can subtract all my flight emissions from my total which I don't even know.
And your figure
i tend to drive long distances quite regularly but I don't use it day to day. been meaning to work out my carbon footprint for a while so i can decide whether it's defensible to ever go on flights or not but haven't got round to it.
not trying to pick on you - I agree with what is said below in retrospect that this is thread is a bit nasty really. I think we should all work out how our lifestyles contribute to climate change and look to improve the situation without just trying to justify our decisions against those of other people.
Didn't mean it to be if it is. Not that it is my thread. Obviously moasm is nasty.
and your 'crew' just took it to the next level
we all know that you are the board's main bully. The rest of us are just trying to impress you.
I'm confused as to who I should be picking on here, can someone PM me?
you can do less smee and more van now
Total Car Footprint = 4.58 tonnes of CO2e
In your face world
House 1.32 metric tons of CO2e
Flights 0.42 metric tons of CO2e
Car 0.00 metric tons of CO2e
Motorbike 0.00 metric tons of CO2e
Bus & Rail 0.38 metric tons of CO2e
Secondary 2.40 metric tons of CO2e
Total = 4.52 metric tons of CO2e
12 on secondary
House 0.09 tonnes of CO2e
Flights 0.00 tonnes of CO2e
Car 3.09 tonnes of CO2e
Motorbike 0.00 tonnes of CO2e
Bus & Rail 1.37 tonnes of CO2e
Secondary 3.36 tonnes of CO2e
Total = 7.92 tonnes of CO2e
should be 1.08
so 8.91 tonnes
Do you have a large household?
House 1.00 tonnes of CO2e
Flights 0.84 tonnes of CO2e
Car 0.24 tonnes of CO2e
Motorbike 0.00 tonnes of CO2e
Bus & Rail 0.00 tonnes of CO2e
Secondary 4.47 tonnes of CO2e
Total = 6.55 tonnes of CO2e
A job that required a lot more car traveling (2-3 hours a day) than usual from Nov - May
New Job that has sent me abroad twice in the last 6 months
big carbon shoes
Bet you've got the biggest TV on the council estate as well, yeah?
Brighthouse are grateful for your custom.
prizes to be won
Or sexybum with his massive smelly diesel van and sweatshop
my car, for instance, runs on badgers that i burn at home using only reclaimed wood. No petrol = no footprint. Similarly the house is powered thanks to the hardwork of many monkeys.
why don't you all focus on how to reduce your carbon footprint
or if you can't be bothered, try and think of a more creative way to screw over your grandchildren
I think it is innate.
This thread needs 50 posts before I come in, this one needs 80. Genius I tell you.
It's a gift really.
Arise Der Bomber!!
FUCK OFF SMEE
Pretty pretty pretty good.
