Carbon calculators are an online tool that calculate greenhouse gas emissions from daily living. This determines your carbon footprint, which is the measure of the impact you or your household has on the planet. Once you know your carbon footprint, you can take steps to reduce it's size by changing the ways you use energy. It's all about making smart choices with your transportation, electricity, heating and cooling, water use, waste, recycling and composting, food choices and much more.

Climate change

This is an important topic in the world today. It is about long-term changes in weather patterns. It has to do with pollution from industry, garbage, energy use, and pollution from cars, trucks and planes. This pollution changes how the natural world works and has worrisome effects on human health, water levels, invasive species, extreme weather, and many others. It also means we need to prepare for more frequent and more intense storms and weather: from floods, to fires, to hotter days in the summer and more freeze-thaw cycles in the winter. Climate Change is a complex topic that affects our daily lives. Read more on how you can help reduce pollution in Huntsville.

Sustainable Living

This means making smart consumer choices and making choices at home, work, and in the community that leave a small footprint. A smaller carbon footprint means less greenhouse gasses released into the atmosphere, which means less harmful impacts on the natural world. We can all work together to reduce our carbon footprints and make a difference.
