How much is 5 tons of C02 anyway?

The Greenhouse Gas Equivalencies Calculator lets you translate reductions of C02 or other green houses gas measured in tons, pounds, kilograms and metric tons into units that are “easier to conceptualize”.

For instance, a 5 ton reduction of C02 is equivalent to one of the following:

  • 517 gallons of gasoline or
  • About 1 passenger car not being driven for one year or
  • A household’s electricity use for 6 months or
  • 11 barrels of crude oil or
  • … the list goes on

Thanks Adam.
