Learn the basics about carbon footprints when learning about carbon chemistry, within environmental chemistry.
You can reduce your own contribution to climate change by reducing the amount of carbon dioxide you release into the atmosphere.
Your carbon footprint is measured by the amount of extra carbon dioxide your lifestyle adds to the atmosphere as a result of the use of fossil fuels, or the cutting down of trees for example.
If your country generates electricity without burning fossil fuel, for example nuclear power or replenishables such as wind or hydro, your carbon footprint will be reduced.
You can reduce your carbon footprint by insulating your house, triple-glazing your windows, drive your car efficiently or use public transport or walk, buy food locally, use LED lights and reduce the amount of red meat you eat.
