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: 46200000 tons of CO2 would be emitted by any of the following activities...

An average car could be driven for

**204,894 years**non-stopA 13-watt CF lightbulb could be lit for
