The burning of fossil fuels drives the concern for carbon in the atmosphere. Increasing levels of carbon dioxide (up from 250 to 390 ppm since the start of the Industrial Revolution) are believed to be the main factor. We all need to reduce our Carbon Footprint. This is the amount of CO2 we each produce as we live, consume power and materials. Many sites allow you to calculate your carbon footprint and to compare yours as an individual or organization to other relevant footprints. See http://cmt.epa.ie/Calculator/. This is a starting point to develop a plan to reduce your footprint and many websites provide suggestions on areas to focus on, such as http://www.wwf.org.uk/what_we_do/working_with_business/green_game_changers/
