Unser Anteil am Klimawandel: Wie viel CO² produzieren wir jährlich?
David & Lindsay, 4.6-6.9 Tonnen CO²
David hat die letzten zwei Jahre ihrem neuen „Zero CO² home“ gewidmet. Lindsay ist Beraterin für den Staatssektor und für Charity. Die zwei haben, bis zur Fertigstellung ihres Hauses, zwei Jahre lang in einem Containerhaus gewohnt.
