Next, we want to know how much CO₂ you generate from your energy use.
One kWh of electricity generated in a coal-fired power plant (our main power source) produces
about 2 pounds (lbs) of CO₂. Oil and natural gas produce less.
1. Calculate the CO₂2 produced during your yearly energy use, assuming coal power./n2. Double the number from #1 to account for the CO-2 you produced indirectly through the
purchase of goods and services that need energy.
3. Convert from pound (lbs) of CO₂ to tons of CO₂ by dividing by 2000. (2000 lbs = 1 ton).
Finally, discuss your energy use in light of the following information. Americans typically
generate between 11 and 25 tons of CO₂ annually per person (or ~17 tons of CO2 annually per
person). Currently, worldwide release of CO₂ from fossil fuel combustion and industrial
processes is about 36.8 billion tons per year (EIA, 2023). Since the planet's population is now
7.8 billion, each person's average share of CO₂ should be about 4.7 tons/year. To slow climate
change, some suggest that we need to reduce our usage to just two tons per person per year.
How close do you come to two tons/person, and how close do you think you could come, now
that you know the impacts of your energy use?
