What is a carbon footprint? The term “carbon footprint” refers to the amount of carbon (C02) we emit individually in a year. C02 is produced from many sources and is the main gas responsible for Global warming and the changes in our climate.
Average Per Year Teenagers: 13.4 tonnes Adults : 17.5 tonnes
