Since our last post, our topic was broad as the ocean, but now we have narrowed it down to how carpooling can reduce the carbon emissions in our world immensely. On average, carpooling with one other person to work and back will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 3.72 kilograms. By cutting cars in half or thirds we are using much less co2 than usual. Globally, the road transport sector is responsible for 74% of global CO2 emissions. We have reached out to Capp’s mom who has written a book on Global Warming and how it is caused. In her book she wrote about how if we create something to encourage carpooling, than it will be a great benefit. Our project is important because our planet cannot take much more C02. C02 is creating a gas chamber in our atmosphere and warming our environment. This is detrimental to our environment.
