Many Americans lose sight of their individual impact to the planet. Studies have shown that people in countries with high per-capita levels of carbon emissions are less intensely concerned about climate change. Even though we contribute to economies responsible for the greatest annual CO2 emissions, we are among the most likely to believe that the effects of climate change are long way off. Our lifestyles, habits and desires make us the heavy consumers we are. We lose sight of how our consumption patterns affect the livelihood of other people, species and wildlife.
It is noted that one carbon footprint is the total amount of greenhouse gases produced to directly and indirectly support human activities, usually expressed in equivalent metric tons of carbon dioxide (CO2e).
