Carbon footprint

Ecological footprint or carbon footprint? Granted, these measures are likely about as accurate as a calorie counter on a treadmill*, but here's a good introduction to the varieties of online carbon-footprint calculators. Even if they're only a rough estimate, they're a good test of what we can cut back on.

*if it's warm enough to run or bike outside, avoid the treadmill. Cut down on energy use.
