Trip Emissions

Carbon Miles calculates the environmental impact of your latest trip in terms of pounds of CO2 as well as tree year equivalencies.  Most likely, the user is far more familiar with trees than with pounds of Carbon Dioxide.  The idea is that by equating CO2 to tree years, the impact of vehicle related emissions will become clearer, helping the user better understand the interaction between carbon dioxide and our environment.  Over time, Carbon Miles will familiarize users on the link between CO2 and climate change, creating a more educated and engaged public.
