Just to follow up on my previous post on my carbon footprint. I just had my car registered and the RTA process gives you the details of your carbon over the last year. At 23%, that’s around 11 tons of carbon. The real number however was 3.4 tons, which implies to me that this calculator is off.

This calculator offers a far more granular experience. Allows you to understand how that big number actually adds up. The curious thing however is how different the country averages are between the calculators. The UN calculator seems to imply it’s 93.21 tons/year, while this calculator thinks that the UAE average is 23.3 tons/year. Someone is telling porkies.
