    I wish there was a way to track all of our carbon footprints.  Like food production, food and personal transportation, energy use, hot water, HVAC, even physical emissions.  I think identifying the worst culprits would allow me to cut back on that specific area.  I assume currently the bus, food transportation/production are my worst offenders.  I should eat more locally grown food.....and fix my bike
