Calculating your carbon footprint is a good way to start thinking about how much carbon you are responsible for and get you thinking about ways you can reduce this.

    This can raise your awareness of your responsibility.

    Excellent - if I reduce mine, how do we prevent tens of thousand folk waking up in the developing world every day, saying "today I pick up my new car so that I don't have to trawl around on public transport like a failure any more"?

    We can wring our hands and drag ourselves back to the age of wicker if we have the will (we don't) but how do we force everyone else to move towards the same joyless agenda when when all that everyone in the developing world wants is more shiny new stuff?

    Does everyone think that it's a 'joyless agenda'? From what I've read so far on here, there can be many more benefits coming out of simple changes, such as physical, mental health benefits and money saving experiences, that also have a positive impact on the environment.
