Same comfort level, same needs, different choices Same comfort level, same needs, different choices
In this example, C02 emitted each day by two persons living in Munich are detailed, showing two different ways of fulfilling the same needs: 38 kg of C02 emitted by an average consumer versus 14 kg by a more aware one.

Life cycle emissions of a computer Life cycle emissions of a computer
“Manufacturing computers is materials-intensive; the total fossil fuels used to make one desktop computer weigh over 240 kilograms, some ten times the weight of the computer itself. This is very high compared to many other goods: For an automobile or refrigerator, for example, the weight of fossil fuels used for production is roughly equal to their weights. Substantial quantities of chemicals (22 kg), and water (1 500 kg) are also used.” Eric Wil...
