Carbon Footprint:
Today's full day plan can take up to about 32 miles of driving, if your home base is midtown Atlanta.  The 32 miles  equates to about 24 pounds of carbon dioxide, or the carbon sequestered by about 5 sq feet of forest.  Calculations are based on the U.S. EPA's green house gas equivalencies calculator.  

32 miles of driving
24 pounds of carbon dioxide
5 square feet of forest would be required to sequester this carbon.

Wonder why a gallon of gas (about 6 pounds) generates 20 pounds of green house gas?  Check out this article at
