A single hour of NYC carbon emissions:

I think I need this one attached to my car keys. One Gallon of Gas:
From the methodology document:
Take a typical room 20 feet x 20 feet x 9 feet. Only 400 parts per million of the air in the room is carbon dioxide, which doesn’t sound like a lot. However, that is nearly 11 US gallons of carbon dioxide, which sounds a lot more significant. 3.2 US gallons of that came from burning fossil fuels. If you show people that in every small room there is 3 US gallons of greenhouse gas that we have put there if begins to seem like a big deal.
I’m thinking maybe I should label three empty milk jugs and leave ’em in my living room to trip over, just so I don’t forget.
