Carbon Foot Prints

Carbon footprint is defined as the total amount of greenhouse gases that are directly and indirectly supporting human activities which is expressed in terms of tons of carbon dioxide (CO2). Carbon credits Carbon credits are trade able permit schemes that are developed by the governments to greenhouse gases that are generated by the fossil fuel based power generating companies, Transportation system that run on fossil and many more dependable divisions. Carbon credits create a market and each credit represents one tonne of carbon dioxide either removed from the atmosphere or saved from emitting. These credits are certificates awarded to countries that are successful in reducing the carbon emission. Need of carbon credits Millions of years ago the planet with the nature has managed to regulate the concentration levels of the greenhouse gases through sources and sinks. Carbon is in the form of CO2 and methane which is available in rotten vegetables, volcanoes, burning of fossil fuels and

Public Transport Usage

Using the public transport can help in reducing the carbon foot prints because using the common platform will consume less amount of fuel or electricity that you will travel through bus or metro trains. These are most economical transport when compare to the individual transport that you use for daily travel to go to office, shopping, school or college. In the present modern technology we are using the hydro-carbon fuel transport and the development is going further to reduce the emission and make the transport more sustainable. The scientists are developing the unique way of electric propulsion development transport which are fast enough to reach to longer distance in a very less time period.  Some of the best options that we can choose to travel with less carbon footprints are as follows: Public transport a. Buses b. Metro trains c. Local trains Electric vehicles Air travel in Economy class Travelling in Economy class is economical and reduce in pollution reduction because, in th
