Carbon Calculator

Writing about web page http://www.carboncalculator.co.uk/

I tried this a while ago, but encountered a problem. I decided to try again, but encountered the same problem (not suprising when you know the problem…)

The problem is that I can't actually do it; it won't let me.

More specifically, the problem is that the preliminary question do not apply to anywhere I live:

For my house off campus, the maximum selectable housemates is 8, whereas my house has 14.
For home, there's no option for the method of heating to be coal.

Not that I'm actually that bothered, it's just that I'm not one to shy away from a rampaging bandwagon…

    The average beefeater is responsible for 0.35T of carbon equivalents being emitted each year through methane from cows – you could eat less beef and reduce this.

    How does that work? If I stop eating cows, surely there will be more of them about, producing more methane?

    Or are they saying that eating beef gives you gas?

  2. Perhaps if you'd mentioned the problems you were having to us in an email, we might have been able to fix them. Blogging saying we haven't fixed a problem we didn't know about doesn't really help us!

  3. I thought you had all the data you needed…

    Anyway, I wasn't really that bother then or now; I just couldn't think of anything better to blog about. I'm sure the Carbon Calculator itself is very good, I just happen to be in a minority of 14 people households and coal fires. If there were many people with this problem I'm sure you'd have heard about it. No need to make all that effort for one person…
