*Emissions from waste and emissions savings from recycling are expressed as carbon dioxide equivalents. For a more detailed analysis of fuel costs and emissions from your car, visit EPA’s and the Department of Energy’s Fuel Economy Web site. For more detailed estimates of your home energy use (electricity, gas, and oil) and emissions, use ENERGY STAR’s Home Energy Yardstick tool. The ENERGY STAR site also provides ideas on a wide range of energy-saving products. Keep in mind that average per person emissions estimates or per capita emissions estimates are usually derived from national estimates of GHG emissions, which include GHG emissions from all sources in the U.S., including industrial emissions (emissions from manufacturing of goods and services). As a result, if you compare your estimates from the personal emissions calculator to per capita emissions in the U.S., they may differ significantly.
