Welcome to TrackMyCarbon.com
In 2011, the world's leading climate scientists, made the proclamation that for us to have any hope of having a safe climate, we have to use less that 1000 trillion tons of CO2... Ever.
This isn't a limit that will increase after a number of years, this is a limit that we need to stick to forever. We need to share this limit with our children, our grandchildren, and so on.
If we have any hope of remaining below this limit, we need to reduce our worldwide carbon emissions, until technology advances to a point where the entire world can be powered through eco-friendly methods only.
By 2016, the entire world has burned 178 billion tons of CO2. At this rate, our limit will be expended by 2040.
In December 2015, the UNFCCC came up with the Paris Climate Accord. This was a plan, aiming to start in 2020 that would help limit CO2 emissions across the entire world. As of 2017, 195 members have signed the agreement, and 170 have become party to it. Although Donald Trump, leader of the world's most powerful and possibly the world's most influential country, has announced his plans to leave the agreement.
This shows how we cannot rely on politicians. Even if they were all perfect, it will require all 7.6 billion of us to each do our part to help save the planet.
This is the goal of TrackMyCarbon.com. To make it easy for you to see how you can do your bit, and reduce your carbon emissions.
The idea behind this carbon calculator is to forgo all the complicated maths and science that the average person can't relate to, and provide them with something that we can all relate to. Once you click the get started button below, and fill in all the questions, you will be provided with a temperature.
This temperature is the average temperature that the globe would rise by if every person lived with the same lifestyle choices as you (by the year 2065). Anything below 1.5 degrees is deemed as safe, whereas anything above 2 degrees is a dangerous level, which would cause unforeseen consequences and likely our planet for good.
Click the get started button and answer the questions to find out your temperature today.
Please note that this is a calculation based on the most acurate scientific data available. It is however not going to be 100% correct.sources
