Helene York, vice president of strategic partnerships at Bon Appétit demos the company's Low Carbon Diet Calculator. The software tool allows users to calculate the carbon emissions created in everyday meals such as cheeseburgers, tacos and chicken sandwiches and then they can decide how their food choices impact the environment.

The CO2 that you exhale and the CO2 that comes from burning biofuel is from carbon that is already in the carbon cycle. It was absorbed from the atmosphere in the process of the plant growing and gets released again when you or another animal eats it so the net increase of CO2 from your breathing is zero. Carbon from fossil fuels is carbon that has been sequestered from the carbon cycle for (in most cases) 100's of millions of years so burning it increases the total carbon in the carbon cycle. Oxygen is necessary for life but breathing a 100% oxygen atmosphere at normal pressures for any length of time is toxic. Same thing for CO2, not enough is not good but too much is also not good.
Hates Idiots states: "I'll bet the CO2 from a billion people exceeds that from a million cars." If he is correct, then maybe all we need to do is reduce China's overcrowded population. This will serve two functions - 1) Reduce the CO2 that those people exhale, and 2) Reduce their need for fossil fuels for cars, electricity, etc.
Wow. The church of Global Warming hates heritics. All I did was ask why Global Warming scientists never look at the whole picture. With the EPA now calling CO2 a pollutant I ask, when will we all need to wear filters to cleanup the CO2 we exhale? I'll bet the CO2 from a billion people exceeds that from a million cars.
Not a bad idea but needs to be renamed and recalibrated to specified local areas. Needs retooled to help the user in reducing emissions & pollutants while showing how to eat at lower trophic levels. Also, gauge it to support local sources and producers, wherever that may be, so that distribution factors are considered. Otherwise it seems too vague and wil invite criticism.
the right wing hate machine swings into action - ANYTHING that shows that the high consumption crap on the earth way they choose to live has deleterious consequences for the rest of life must be a lie. Of course, it's a conspiracy to make you change. Put down the Hummer - lift your snout out of the trough and back away slow.
take into account the carbon captured by the plants grown for the food? I see a lot of carbon being sucked up by those fields of corn planted every year for biofuel. At least in my part of the country the farmers plow under the stalks or collect them and grind them up for composting after the corn is harvested. Of course composting releases methane, a powerful global warming gas. Just don't try to tell that to the green police who advocate it.
Global Warming has been proven to be a farce!!! Just use that computer of yours to RESEARCH it! Hint: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LOYwur6T6tc WATCH IT!!! You'll get a REAL education!
