# How Much CO2 Is That?

## Enter an amount of CO2:

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: 1300 tonnes of CO2 would be emitted by any of the following activities...

An average car could be driven for

**5.77 years**non-stopA 13-watt CF lightbulb could be lit for

**11,416 years**continuouslyA 747 could fly for

**41.04 hours**non-stopA 42 inch LCD TV could be used for

**889 years**continuouslyThe energy use of an average house could be met for
