Green transportation includes measuring your carbon footprint and then changing behavior. This online carbon calculator helps you make those measurements and behavior changes.

carbon footprint calculator for  transportation by city and consumer behavior changes The TravelMatters Individual Calculator measures how much greenhouse gas you generate as a result of your daily transportation activity. Simply enter the monthly distances you traveled by mode of transportation - on foot, by bicycle, car, bus, train, plane, or boat - and the calculator will do your "greenhouse gas accounting" for you.

As a resource tool, the profile allows you to set goals for personal emissions reduction, and then to follow your progress. By illuminating the links between transportation and global warming, the TravelMatters calculator will help you make better-informed decisions about how you travel. You can save your profile, for follow-up to monitor and measure your change in behavior -- which is what REALLY matters!

Your emission results are given in pounds of carbon dioxide, and are broken down into three general categories of transportation. What do these figures mean, and how do they relate to climate change? Here, you can read about ways to reduce emissions.

To begin with, because carbon dioxide is the most important greenhouse gas, the calculator has converted other emissions (methane, nitrous oxide) into an equivalent amount of carbon dioxide. This will be the equivalent volume of carbon that your travel activity introduces into the atmosphere every month.

This is a wonderful site for really learning about your carbon footprint and finding ways to change your behavior. It's the best site I surveyed!
