My Own Carbon Footprint

This is a graph showing what levels of CO2 emissions are lower than the U.S. Average. As you can see, my lowest levels are Recycling and Waste, followed by Driving and Flying. The reason why my home energy is so high is because I live in an older apartment and the efficiency of the heater and air conditioner is very low. My Recycling and waste are higher than the national average because of the fact that I dont have the recycling abilities of others because of living in an apartment building.
