Assumptions in carbon footprint

Electricity:

  • Electric bill - 11,698 kwh/year = average energy consumption / household.
  • the U.S. average is 13.27 cents per kilowatt hour (kwh), 0.62 kilogramCO2 / kwh.
  • 11,698 kwh/year * 0.62 kgCO2/kwh = 7,252.76 kg CO2/year.

Flights per year:

  • Flights per year - average is 2.1 trips per American (if fly).
  • Assume 0.1304 kgCO2/km for medium-term flights (DEFRA model).
  • Domestic flights ~2.5-3 hr, 2200km * 0.1304 kgCO2/km * 2.1 trips = 602.448 kg CO2/yr.

Transportation:

  • Average American drives around 15,000 per year (assume this is all forms of ground transport).
  • Fuel efficiency on car - assume 30 mpg on road car now.
  • 0.960 pounds = 0.435 kg CO2 per mile (driving) * 15,000 miles/year = 6,525.0 kg CO2 / year.
  • 0.657 pounds = 0.298 kg of CO2 per mile - 50% public transport, 50% single auto * 15,000 miles/year = 4470.0 kg CO2 /year.
  • 0.354 pounds = 0.161 kg of CO2 per mile (public transportation) * 15,000 miles / year = 2,415.0 kg CO2 / year.

Uber trips:

  • (14 uber million trips / day * 0.50)9 / 325 million people (USA) * 365 days / year = 7.86 rides/person in the USA (assumes 50% of all uber rides are in the USA).
  • Average ride length = 6 miles/trip * 7.86 trips / person / year * 0.960 kgCo2/mile = 45.27 kg Co2/uber rider/year.

Food choices / nutrition:

  • 1.7 US tons = 1,542.21406 kilograms of CO2/year - vegetarian.
  • 2.5 US tons = 2,267.96185 kilograms of CO2/year - average.
  • 3.3 US tons = 2,993.70964 kilograms of CO2/year - meat lover.

Amazon supply chain:

  • 0.1289 kg CO2e per dollar (USD).
  • 3,300,000 boxes/day13 * 365 days/year / 325,000,000 Americans = 3.70 boxes/American.
  • 3.70 boxes/year * $47 / box = ~$173.90/year * 0.1289 kg / $1 USD= 22.41 kg CO2/year.
