1 Cigarettes’ Environmental Impact

2 Overview Main Focus: CO 2 emissions Global Impact My Impact Furthering the study: other means of impact Production Litter Review Ways to Mitigate

3 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 = tonnes (11,180 kg) My emissions/year = 2.6 E -6 tonnes or kilotons CO 2 Emissions

4 Perspective Emission by three major energy sources: Petrol: 1 US gallon emits kg of CO2 Diesel: 1 US gallon emits kg of CO2 Crude Oil: 1 barrel emits 317 kg of CO2 This means 1 tonne of CO2 is created by: Petrol: gallons Diesel: 95.3 gallons Crude Oil: 3.15 barrels

5 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

6 Environmental Impact Review Concrete CO2 Deforestation Litter Non-measureable Pesticides and fertilizer Chemical waste Green Tobacco Sickness Fish and Animals

7 Ways to Cutback Impact Quit (duh) E cigarettes Nicotine patch Sin tax Always throw out butts
