Overview Main Focus: CO 2 emissions Global Impact My Impact Furthering the study: other means of impact Production Litter Review Ways to Mitigate
Estimate that 2,600 tonnes (2.6 million kilograms) of CO2 are emitted every year by cigarettes Estimated 43.8 million smokers in the USA and estimated 1 billion smokers in the world US proportion of emissions/year = 11.18 tonnes (11,180 kg) My emissions/year = 2.6 E -6 tonnes or 0.0026 kilotons CO 2 Emissions
Perspective Emission by three major energy sources: Petrol: 1 US gallon emits 8.824 kg of CO2 Diesel: 1 US gallon emits 10.439 kg of CO2 Crude Oil: 1 barrel emits 317 kg of CO2 This means 1 tonne of CO2 is created by: Petrol: 113.33 gallons Diesel: 95.3 gallons Crude Oil: 3.15 barrels
Furthering the Study Before smoking: 600 millions trees are cut down every year Weak crop Chemical waste Green Tobacco Sickness After smoking: Litter from Cigarettes 4.5 trillion cigarette butts per year Impact on fish and animal life Any given 12 years
Environmental Impact Review Concrete CO2 Deforestation Litter Non-measureable Pesticides and fertilizer Chemical waste Green Tobacco Sickness Fish and Animals
Ways to Cutback Impact Quit (duh) E cigarettes Nicotine patch Sin tax Always throw out butts
