Our unit on energy and the recent field trip to Meralco has inspired a lot of people to be thinking about energy and all the different aspects of it. I want to send out a great big thanks to Eve, who sent me a link for a fascinating website by National Geographic. It has lots and lots of interesting features, but what caught her attention was a link called “The Personal Energy Meter“. No matter where you live, your energy use contributes to carbon emissions into the atmosphere. Using this interactive tool, you can calculate your personal carbon footprint based on information specific to your location. See how you measure up against others, and how choices you make at home and in the way you travel could help to protect the atmosphere!!
