Title Carbon emissions reduction strategies for Utah households operating under a budget constraint
Date 2009-04-27
Description This thesis presents actions that households can take to reduce carbon dioxide emissions associated with day-to-day activities. Average annual estimates of the carbon output associated with home energy use, transportation, and dietary choices are provided for both Utah and U.S. households. It is estimated that the average Utah household produces 81,808 pounds (lbs) of carbon dioxide annually from these three categories, while the average U.S. household contributes 71,561 lbs per year. The research concludes that significant carbon dioxide emissions reductions of 32.2% for Utah households and 32.4% for national households are accessible by employing a mix of strategies. Furthermore, it is found that these strategies are available at a net financial savings to the household.
