How is the carbon foot print determined? Do you use the mass of, say, a fule
and burn it with oxygen giving CO2 and then determining the mass of CO2
released? The news media tends to throw these numbers around quite a lot.
People take in O2 and reacts with our food and gives off CO2, and energy to
make us go. How is all this figured? John
