What your carbon footprint means for climate change:
A carbon footprint is the best estimate we can have to understanding the full impact of "something" on climate change. CO2 (or Carbon Dioxide) is the primary greenhouse gas causing the earth to become warmer (ie. Global Warming). Thick blankets of CO2 in the atmosphere trap the heat from the sun, warming the planet. So the more CO2, the warmer the planet becomes. Currently, we're at the highest CO2 levels recorded in the last 3 million years of earth's history and nearly double what we were in 1950.
