Note that the only way to print (or save to file) the graph is by taking a screenshot. The red label in the figure above with total tonnes of greenhouse gases (ghg) was added later; neither the graph nor the ta- ble contain the total value, although it is tallied up at each step. The re- port does have options to “print” or “save to clipboard” which makes transfer into EXCEL very easy. Another problem is that the “waste” cat- egory simply doesn’t work: all inputs come up with the same result. Regardless of its shortcomings, the AGC does, as Jennifer says, give you a sense of how your daily activities are contributing to the global problem of carbon emissions. And that’s the place to start. - Barbara Burns Personal action 7 ways to reduce your carbon footprint  Reduce your fossil-fuelled travel     Take the bus or train rather than your car or a plane; Join a car-share program Consider an electric car for your next vehicle Eat less red meat, especially beef and lamb.
