Average = 54,000 pounds

Here's some neat info from my latest issue of Nature Conservancy Magazine (I got it when Lynnette and I adopted an acre of forest):
The average person puts out about 54,000 pounds of CO2 ever year. Here's some of the breakdown:
  • 17,000 pounds from electricity usage
  • 8,800 pounds from natural gas usage
  • 1,000 pounds from creating 4.5 pounds of trash each day
  • 8,900 pounds from driving
  • 1,000 pounds from flying
How do you stack up?
