What Is Your Carbon Footprint?

Green Home Blog

This drastic change in our earth’s climate is caused by greenhouse gases, mostly carbon dioxide (CO 2 ), methane (CH 4 ), and ozone (O 3 ), that trap sunlight in the atmosphere and heat the earth below. Human activity over the last few decades is responsible for creating huge amounts of these gases, which is why reducing greenhouse gas emissions are such an important part of going green. Transportation is another big source of greenhouse gases: 27% of all U.S.
