This site is produced by British Petroleum and provides a simple, interactive guide to estimate your annual household carbon emissions. The calculator asks questions about the features of your residence, car travel, air travel and recycling habits. As each question is answered, a graph displays the carbon emissions so you can see the effects of each of the options presented. This tool is intended as an approximate guide only, but is useful for stimulating an awareness of the approximate amount of carbon dioxide emitted by everyday tasks.
