TerraPass
http://www.terrapass.com/
TerraPass
TerraPass is the brainchild of Dr. Karl Ulrich at the University of Pennsylvania. Along with 41 of his students, Karl launched TerraPass in October, 2004 as a way to help everyday people reduce the climate impact of their driving. Within its first year, TerraPass registered over 2,400 members, reduced 36 million pounds of CO2, and earned countless national press and blog articles.
TerraPass is a resource for those looking to meet the challenge of global warming by taking responsibility for their own carbon emissions. With TerraPass, you can calculate your carbon footprint and find ways to reduce it with energy-saving tips and ideas. Through TerraPass, you can also balance your emissions by funding clean energy and carbon reduction projects that help to fight global warming.

Breathing Earth
http://www.breathingearth.net/
Welcome to Breathing Earth.
This real-time simulation displays the CO2 emissions of every country in the world, as well as their birth and death rates.
Please remember that this real time simulation is just that: a simulation.
Although the CO2 emission, birth rate and death rate data used in Breathing Earth comes from reputable sources, data that measures things on such a massive scale can never be 100% accurate.
Please note however that the CO2 emission levels shown here are much more likely to be too low than they are to be too high.

What is a Carbon Footprint?
http://www.plant-a-tree-today.org/NewQuickOffset.asp
What is a Carbon Footprint?
Your carbon footprint is the direct effect your actions and lifestyle have on the environment in terms of carbon dioxide emissions.
Probably the biggest contributors to your footprint are your travel needs, and your electricity demands at home.
However, all your actions have a direct or indirect impact, including your diet, and the clothes you wear. We know cars, buses and aeroplanes burn gasoline, public transport may use gasoline and electricity and your home uses a significant portion of your personal electricity needs that generally comes from fossil fuel burning power plants.
All these actions contribute to accelerating global warming and climate change.

Calculate your CO2 Impact
http://climatecrisis.net/take_action/become_carbon_neutral.php
We all contribute to global warming every day.
The carbon dioxide you produce by driving your car and leaving the lights on adds up quickly. You may be surprised by how much Co2 you are emitting each year. Calculate your personal impact and learn how you can take action to reduce or even eliminate your emissions of carbon dioxide.
The carbon dioxide calculator for individuals is based on two areas of energy use that make up the majority of most individuals' carbon dioxide emissions: transportation and home energy.

Carbon Footprint Calculator
http://www.carbonfootprint.com/calculator.aspx
The calculations for the primary emissions are based on a combination of metrics from the UK's Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA), the UK's Department for Transport, and the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
The calculations for the secondary emissions are based on estimates developed by Carbon Footprint to illustrate the impact on the environment from your day-to-day activities.
Your actual secondary footprint may in reality be either lower or greater than that estimated here.
The total carbon footprint of an individual is the sum of their primary and secondary emissions.
The average carbon footprint per individual for each country is sourced from the EPA.

Personal Emissions Calculator (EPA)
http://www.epa.gov/climatechange/emissions/ind_calculator.html
Personal Emissions Calculator (EPA)
EPA has developed tools to help individuals (and households) reduce greenhouse gas emissions and take action. Businesses and organizations interested in educating their employees and members about what they can do at home to help protect our climate can also use these tools.
Use this online calculator to obtain an estimate of your personal greenhouse gas emissions or your family’s greenhouse gas emissions. Then move on to the next section of the calculator to explore actions you and/or your family can take to lower your emissions while reducing your energy and waste disposal costs. For each action you choose to take, the calculator displays the amount of emissions you could avoid and how that amount relates to your total emissions.
