Playing with emissions

Why is CO2 so important, a sort of jerky obsession to environmental reports and transportation managers? If you are interested in knowing how much emissions your everyday actions produce, here you have a smart and funny infographic by Data Visualization.

Carbon dioxide is essential to make life possible on earth but too much of anything can make you sick, even a good could be a curse. That’s how CO2 levels exceeding the quantity naturally absorbed by ecosystem has become thread to global warming • read my post.

How many CO2 emissions I may cause having an apple for lunch? Supposedly zero, but if I buy that apple in superstores it’s 80g of CO2 more in the air.

What if I send an email? It’s 50g if I put attachments. And what if I got married? It’s 5 tons of CO2 – if I invite less than 100 people – thanks to all single people taking care of Our Planet!

Continue the list and have fun!

Per chi si preoccupa di calcolare le emissioni di CO2 collegate alle nostre azioni quotidiane, ecco uno strumento simpatico e intuitivo fornito da Data Visualization.

Il biossido di carbonio è tra le sostanze fondamentali che permettono la vita sulla terra, ma, si sa, il troppo stroppia. In quantità limitate è assorbito dall’ecosistema diventando nutrimento per le piante ma il suo eccesso è causa del (sur)riscaldamento globale • leggi l’articolo .

Mangiando una mela a pranzo a quante emissioni ho contribuito? Apparentemente zero, se fosse del mio orto, ma se la compro al supermercato sono 80g di CO2 in più nell’aria.

E se invio una email? 50g quando ha immagini in allegato. Se mi sposo? 5 tonnellate di CO2, invitando meno di 100 persone – grazie a tutti i single per la salvaguardia del pianeta!

Continuate la lista e buon divertimento!
