Ruth, that's a great table.  It really shows the impact of some of our choices.  Cars and homes are such a big deal, it makes some of the other choices seem minor.  But it all adds up.

I like to think about some of the other side of it too - getting some carbon credits.  Planting trees.  Changing lawns to trees shrubs and xeroscapes.  Painting the roof white.  Moving closer to work.

I would multiply the "one vegetarian meal per week" by 21, so it's 3 meals daily, 7 days a week.  But that's just me.  It would make it >8,000 pounds, if the math translates (breakfast is different from supper).   Also, eat home prepared vs. driving somewhere to eat.
