Title: Could you give me some Comparative Climate Impact statistics and details?
Post by: pileofrogs on 15/03/2008 04:55:15
I would love to see a list of things we consumers can do to reduce climate change comparing dollars/pounds it costs per ton of carbon kept from the atmosphere and hours of personal effort invested per carbon ton. 

E.G.
Replace one 60 watt lightbulb with compact fluorescent  Cost = $X, Time = 5 minutes, Carbon = 0.X
tons.
Buy lettuce from farmers market ...
Install PV array on house ... 
etc...

This seems like something someone will have done by now, so does anyone know of something like this?  I've poked around on Google with no luck so far.

-Thanks!

I can't say I've seen a list like that. If I come across anything I'll post a link to it.
