Carbon Footprint Calculator: What's My Carbon Footprint?

Inevitably, in going about our daily lives — commuting, sheltering our families, eating — each of us contributes to the greenhouse gas emissions that are causing climate change. Yet, there are many things each of us, as individuals, can do to reduce our carbon emissions. The choices we make in our homes, our travel, the food we eat, and what we buy and throw away all influence our carbon footprint and can help ensure a stable climate for future generations. Use The Nature Conservancy's carbon footprint calculator to measure your impact on our climate. Our carbon footprint calculator estimates how many tons of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases your choices create each year. more info

To get started, select the number of people in your home. Then choose whether you want to calculate a carbon footprint for yourself or for your household.You can also calculate your carbon footprints:

Carbon Natural...

    


        

Our vision is a world which maintains a safe living temperature and healthy environment for our children and grandchildren.

Our mission statement: Carbon Neutral is committed to securing a better future for our children by making it easy to offset emissions through native tree planting and facilitating access to information on greenhouse gas emissions reduction. Carbon Neutral was started by Men of the Trees in 2001 as a way to help community and industry to take responsibility for the effect of greenhouse gas emissions on the environment. 
Since then we have planted hundreds of thousands of trees in some of the most environmentally vulnerable areas of Australia.  The program offers government departments, private corporations and individuals the opportunity to offset the carbon dioxide produced by their daily activities. We guarantee that: All trees planted for Carbon Neutral will be monitored. The trees are grown specifically for the local environment. The WA Environment Awards homepage is www.naturebase.net/waea There is follow up maintenance at all sites

In some Latin languages, the word aella means “for her” or “to her”. Considering the fact that we are dedicated to the Earth, this is fitting. The word also means “whirlwind” in Greek. In Greek mythology, this was also the name of a mighty Amazon warrior who battled Heracles.
We at A.E.L.L.A. see the movement in which we are about to generate as a whirlwind of knowledge for the masses and our main enemy will be the factory farming/food industry. This is indeed the massive “Heracles” of the major plagues that currently exist in our world. Its effects on the planet, especially in regard to global warming, animal brutality, species depletion and child starvation, must be fought.
In essence, this organization will battle all forms of abuse to life and the Earth, including human life. No form of abuse will be tolerated and the members of A.E.L.L.A. will spend each day working toward educating humanity in regard to reclaiming their world in the name of compassion and equality.
“We are not free until all life is free” ~ Marla Stormwolf-Patty(Co-Founder)
The main goal of A.E.L.L.A. is not only to do whatever we can to raise global awareness but also to help bridge the gaps that lie between the different activist groups and organizations. We believe that this is the key to success in all of our mutual endeavors. We need to start working together for the common goal & greater good as we are quite fractured. We see a specific need to educate the public in regards to the devastation that factory farming is inflicting on our planet and to fight against it. The obvious reason for this is because there will be no life on Earth for our posterity if we do not change our current direction.

Red Jellyfish.Com Rain Forest Facts...

                                     

                                         

Rain Forest Information   

This section of Red Jellyfish is a nerve center of information, links and resources about rain forests. Rain forests cover only 2% of the planet, yet produce over 20% of our oxygen.  They are also the source of many important medicines and foods, such as chocolate, cinnamon, vanilla, bananas and oranges.  Visit our  section for more information.

Despite their amazing beauty and diversity, the rainforests are being destroyed at the rate of a football field per second.  That's right -- we lose over 50 million acres of rainforest every year.  At this rate, they will be almost completely destroyed in the next 40 years.  We have much more information about this in our rainforest destruction area. Tropical Rainforests are also a fantastic place to visit!  In fact, eco-tourism is one of the best hopes for the survival of the rainforest. We have therefore put together a rainforest tour section, a convenient resource to help you find tour operators and exciting destinations.  From the mighty Amazon to the forests of Alaska, it's all here. For pure enjoyment, check out our rainforest pictures section or these incredible rainforest puzzles.  Of course, Red Jellyfish has been working to save the rainforests for years, and we have many easy ways that you can participate. We hope you stop by often, and tell your friends about us!

Union of Concerned Scientists
 

 
Right now we’re witnessing an all-out war on science, the environment, and human health.

A number of irresponsible corporations are spending millions to deceive the public about climate change science. Media personalities are spreading false information and discrediting scientists. And many elected officials are not only blocking efforts to address America’s energy and climate crises—they’re also threatening to roll back many of the hard-fought human health and environmental protections we’ve won in the last few years!

"I think that the science is inconclusive on this. I personally believe that the solar flares are more responsible for climatic cycles than anything that human beings do."
—Representative Jim Sensenbrenner (R WI), new vice chair of the House Science Committee

You can help UCS expose and challenge attacks like this on science—become a member today.

Become a Member--click here.

Become a member of UCS today and join us in exposing and challenging these attacks on science and effective, life-saving public policies.

Politicians and media pundits who claim "global warming is a hoax", that it’s just "sunspot activity," or who accuse climate scientists of being "political hacks and leftists" can’t change the scientific evidence. The climate is changing and if we don’t take action there will be devastating consequences for our health, economy, and environment.

We must act now to stand up to vocal global warming deniers and advance science-based solutions that can rein in climate change. Please become a member of UCS today.

With your membership gift, UCS will work to:
  • Expose and challenge attacks on climate science and scientists;
  • Advocate for strong, science-based state and regional climate programs that can reduce heat-trapping emissions at the local level;
  • Push state utility commissions to shut down the oldest and dirtiest coal power plants; and
  • Continue to press the Environmental Protection Agency to reduce global warming emissions from cars, trucks, power plants, and other large industrial polluters.

Our opponents are well coordinated, well funded, and have a singular goal of protecting their own interests. If you’ve ever considered taking your support of our critical work to the next level—now is the time to do it. Please become a member of UCS today.

We may not have the deep pockets of the oil and coal industries and electric utilities who oppose progress on global warming and clean energy—but we do have scientific facts and dedicated supporters like you. I hope you’ll join us as a member today to ensure we can continue to challenge attacks on science and work for a healthy environment and a safer world.

Kevin Knobloch Sincerely,
Kevin Knobloch
Kevin Knobloch
President
 

P.S. You can be confident your donations to UCS are spent wisely. We are accredited with the Better Business Bureau, have received four stars from Charity Navigator, and earned an 'A' rating from the American Institute of Philanthropy.

Our Mission

Earthjustice is a non-profit public interest law firm dedicated to protecting the magnificent places, natural resources, and wildlife of this earth, and to defending the right of all people to a healthy environment.

  • How We Work
    • In the Courts
    • When government agencies or private interests violate (or fail to enforce) our nation's environmental laws, Earthjustice attorneys -- who represent citizen groups, scientists, and others interested parties -- go to court to ensure that our laws are obeyed and enforced.

    • On the Hill
    • Legal victories can lead to attempts in Congress to repeal or dilute the laws we use in litigation. The Earthjustice Policy and Legislation team works to protect and strengthen federal environmental laws, and to defend vital places like the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

    • Working "Green"
    • Earthjustice is actively promoting a green lifestyle in the workplace, too. From recycled tire floors and bamboo cabinets to skylights and large arched windows, design choices were made to minimize our office's environmental footprint and maximize employee comfort.

Answer4Earth...               

Saving the Earth is more than a trivial pursuit...

Answer4Earth was founded as a call to action to the people of the world in response to our growing environmental crisis. It has reached a critical stage where the average global citizen can no longer just stand by idly hoping for others to solve this problem. You now have the opportunity to jump in and make a real difference. We are not asking you to donate money. We are not asking you to get your hands dirty. All we need you to do is simply play a game and have fun (and learn some interesting information along the way)! Just by you playing this game, trees will be planted throughout the world (to find out how this works, read our FAQs). In addition to helping stem global warming, the trees planted by our partner charities clean the air, improve soil quality, prevent erosion, create animal habitats, sustain valuable water sources, and provide healthy nutrition to needy populations. So get on it, start playing, save the environment, feed the poor, get smarter, all that good stuff... Please don't forget to tell your friends to play too! Our Earth needs all the help we can give... are we smart enough to save the planet?

     Ocean Conservancy...


                                                                                                   

What We Do

Ocean Conservancy's four strategic priorities reflect the critical ocean conservation issues that will be the main focus of our efforts. We believe that we can make the most tangible contribution to ocean health by building on our historic accomplishments, strengths, and expertise. We intend to focus our efforts, resources, and attention on the following four critical objectives:

1. Restore Sustainable American Fisheries
The most immediate threat to ocean ecosystem health continues to be overfishing. To solve this problem, the current fishery management system must be reformed.
2. Protect Wildlife From Human Impacts
After overfishing, the greatest human impact on marine species is “by catch,” the unintentional injury or capture of wildlife during fishing operations. 
3. Conserve Special Ocean Places
A majority of ocean scientists agree that marine protected areas are proven tools for conserving ocean ecosystems.  Nevertheless, marine protected areas and marine reserves remain low on the list of priorities in the U.S.                                                                                                                                                                                                                               4. Reform Government for Better Ocean Stewardship
Just as the structure of an organization can hinder its goals, the piecemeal, uncoordinated systems currently in place for governing ocean and coastal ecosystems, at both national and state levels, are limiting the nation’s ability to manage and protect this resource.

               An Albatross Dies Every Five Minutes

Once cursed with killing dolphins, tuna fishing is now being blamed for a shocking reduction in albatross numbers.

Long line fishing is being blamed for a startling drop in the number of albatrosses around the world.  Fish, squid and other bait are trailed on hooks behind a trawler to catch tuna and swordfish. However, because the hooks for these fish are set just below the surface it attracts albatrosses who think they’ve spotted a nice free meal and dive into the water to get it. Instead they get hooked and tangled in the line, dragged under the water, and drowned.  In many cases the bait has been dislodged meaning that hook will now catch nothing. The problem is by no means impossible to solve.  One solution includes flying streamers above the hooks to try and deter the albatrosses from diving in. Recent successes include an 85% reduction off South African waters and a near 100% reduction in the Southern Ocean. BirdLife International is lobbying talks organised by the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas to get counter measures such as the streamers made mandatory. If they fail to save the albatross, then the grace and beauty of the world’s largest wingspan could soon go the way of the Dodo: killed by Man’s greed and stupidity.

World Wildlife Fund...


  Back in 1961 when it was founded, WWF stands for the "World Wildlife Fund". It was the product of a deep concern held by a few eminent gentlemen who were worried by what they saw happening in our world at that time. Since those early days WWF has grown up to be one of the largest environmental organizations in the world.  Currently there are more than 1300 WWF conservation projects underway around the world. The vast majority of these focus on local issues. They range from school nature gardens in Zambia, to initiatives that appear on the packaging in your local supermarket. From the restoration of orangutan habitats to the establishment of giant panda reserves. Almost all our work involves partnerships. We team up with local non-profit agencies and other global NGOs. We form relationships with village elders, local councils and regional government offices. And in this day and age of globalization, critically, we work with businesses who are willing to change. But our most important partnership is with you. Your support means we have the necessary strength to engage with national governments and global agencies like the World Bank. Your support means we have the network to reach out to isolated tribes in the Congo and the Amazon. Your support means we can have real successes and lasting breakthrough in the conservation efforts for our one and only planet.

Seventh Generation.. Save A Tree... 

Save a tree

Seventh Generation is committed to becoming the world's most trusted brand of authentic, safe, and environmentally-responsible products for a healthy home. For 20 years, the closely held Burlington, Vermont-based company has been at the forefront of a cultural change in consumer behavior and business ethics.

One of the country's first self-declared "socially responsible" companies, Seventh Generation is a business that operates according to a new and different set of principles and values that in many ways are a marked departure from those long considered "traditional." Its business practice is focused on offering people avenues to express their idealism, passion, and commitment to causes larger than themselves at every point along its supply chain—from suppliers and partners to shareholders, customers and its own staff.

Endangered Species Chocolate...

Endangered Species Chocolate (ESC) was founded in 1993 in effort to spread awareness and to make an impact on the growing number of plant and animal species that are disappearing from Earth. Since then the mission has grown to embrace a new definition of “endangered” - that all species, habitat and humanity are endangered on our planet, not just animals on a list. 10 percent of our net profits are donated to help support species, habitat and humanity.

To keep up with growing demand for premium chocolate with a cause, and to take advantage of a centralized Midwest location to reduce shipping costs and time, in 2005 ESC moved from its original 5,000-square-foot facility in Oregon to Indiana. The Indianapolis facility provides 43,000 square feet and is expandable to 77,000 square feet. In keeping with our commitment to protect species and our environment, the building is LEED® registered by the U.S. Green Building Rating Council and ESC is pursuing LEED certification. We continually research and implement ways to reduce our carbon footprint.

ESC’s organic cacao is sourced from Peru to create ten varieties of organic milk and dark chocolate bars in addition to bite-sized treats. We plan to visit cacao farmers in Peru in summer 2008. Fair prices are paid for all harvested products used in making Endangered Species Chocolate’s all-natural and organic chocolate products and a fair wage and humane working conditions are ensured for all workers. ESC’s core value is Reverence for Life – a philosophy drawn from renowned humanitarian Albert Schweitzer – which encompasses the spirit and goals of ESC. Reverence for Life manifests itself in the triad: endangered species recovery, habitat conservation and compassion for fellow humans. We believe that all life is precious and deserves our respect, kindness and care. Through our premium chocolate products, we seek to spread environmental awareness and ignite compassion for all life on our planet.
