Examples: "1 ton", "100 pounds", "500 lbs", or "10.5 kg"

Or start with the typical annual CO2 emissions from: an average house or an average car. How about a single trans-atlantic flight in a 747?

## Answer: 120.05 tons of CO2 would be emitted by any of the following activities...

An average car could be driven for

**194 days**non-stopA 13-watt CF lightbulb could be lit for

**1,054 years**continuouslyA 747 could fly for
