...Carbon Footprint My Carbon Footprint Increasing personal carbon footprint increases the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Our daily routine may have such activities that increase the carbon footprints significantly. A region’s total carbon footprint is the result of many individual carbon footprints. In this paper, I will discuss my personal carbon footprint with respect to my daily routine. Carbon footprints directly influence the emissions of greenhouse gases when we use energy for our needs. Most of the energy is generated by burning the fossil fuel resources that produce greenhouse emissions as the by-product of the energy generation process. According to a research conducted...

Carbon tax is a form of carbon pricing and is imposed as a postnatal cost effective measure for reducing the environmental impacts like greenhouse gas emissions. Since, the combustion of fuels containing carbon releases greenhouse gases which have derogatory effects on the ecological and environmental systems of the earth, therefore, a tax on these kinds of fuels is imposed so as to control the effects of the carbon footprints on the environment.

...Carbon foot printing can be defined as the method of accounting for the total quantity of carbon dioxide and other GHG (greenhouse gas), emissions for which an organization as well as an individual is responsible. Generally, the gauge of accounting for a carbon footprint is basically founded on CO2e (carbon dioxide emissions). Other emissions from greenhouses such as Methane (CH4), Nitrous Oxide (N2O, Hydro fluorocarbons (HFCs), per fluorocarbons (PFCs), and Sulphur Hexafluoride (SF6) are all reported as carbon dioxide emissions. Reporting all the other greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) as a single value of measurement makes it easy to manage... ?Running Head: Environmental life cycle analysis Introduction...

...Carbon Tax Carbon tax can be termed as a direct tax imposed on producers on the carbon content emitted in the air. Carbon tax would encourage producers to install pollution control equipment because the imposed tax is so heavy that if one does not install the equipment he will be forced to incur extra expenses, which are not appropriate for business. Eventually the producer will have to bear with the consequences of extra expenses including high electricity bills and slashing of workers. The introduction of carbon tax and the cost of implementing pollution control system have had a significant impact on the firm’s decision making. That is to say firms have decided to go green in the sense... ...

Its accumulation for many years and due to its insulation property, it tends to act as an insulation material on the earth therefore, leading to the gradual increment of temperature in the world.
