I've been wanting to calculate mine for a while, and I found this:
http://www.nature.org/initiatives/cl...ge/calculator/

Result: 5.5 tons, that's not bad
Well, I don't have a car and I'm vegan, so that counts for a lot, I suppose. But I had to guess a little with the state, I'm from Germany and I'm not sure which state is like NRW.

So what's yours?

I got 12, because I live in an apartment not very well insulated with no energy star appliances or lighting. Can't change that, I guess.

Geez, just clicking on Ohio raises the tonnage to 15.

Your estimated greenhouse gas emissions are 12 tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) equivalent per year, which is below the U.S. national average.
Its probably higher because I'm not sure how what the housekeeping does to increase cooling and heating efficiency. We don't have 'energy efficient lighting', unless you count opening the shades for sunlight versus turning on a lamp to see during the day (which is what I do).

Booh, it's only for Americans. Might want to put that in the title maybe?

Edit: Oh I see, I guess I can just pretend I'm from California, they get their hydro from us anyway.

I was pretending to be from New Jersey, since I live in a small crappy place next to a big place, and this is what I understand NJ to be from films...

(If we were in California, we would have been 26, all other things being equal.)
That's depressing. Kansas needs to get with it.
