How accurate is the CO2 equivalent calculator?
If the values you entered are accurate, these values should be a decent estimate. The only way to get a truly accurate number would be to measure all the variables yourself and calculate the result. However, we strive to get results that should be close to the real numbers for the average person by making some simple assumptions. For example, the average person drives their car about 15,000 miles per year and most clean energy providers charge a premium of around 25% for their energy.
Removing CO2 from the atmosphere is critical to counteract climate change, but the technology is currently lagging behind. A fraction of every purchase from URemovals helps new carbon removal technologies scale.
