Carbon Kids is a flexible, inclusive framework for achieving significant environmental progress without relying on regulation or philanthropy. Carbon Kids leverages the particular knowledge, skills and motivations of businesses, utilities, educators, government, communities, families and, at its core, young people, in the collective goal of protecting the environment. Each participant has a stake in the program’s success because each party extracts useful benefits from participation in Carbon Kids. Specifically:

  • Children and young people gain integrated environmental knowledge and an enhanced appreciation of the physical world. Additionally, they receive public recognition and other more tangible rewards for their good work.
  • Their families benefit from reduced energy use, savings on utility and fuel bills, and less toxic households, in addition to gaining a science-based understanding of critical environmental issues.
  • Businesses and utilities can utilize participation in Carbon Kids to help meet a variety of energy use, regulatory and public relations goals.

As young people grow in knowledge and expertise, their schools, communities, cities and nations are able to leverage that intelligence to develop and implement solutions to environmental problems.

  1. Do you have graphing of how alternative energy sources fit into the picture of the future energy needs. How much of the total energy package can they provide if totally embraced and financed.
    Thanks

  2. I like your page. I was looking for residential electricity use for germany and you have been the best source. I have to say that the per capita electricity use is probably not the best way to compare countries since a country like germany has a very old population on average compared to other industrialized countries. This will affect your results since you will not being comparing apples to apples. Per household or residential account would be the best method.

    I have partially graphed the effect of price on electricity use, dividing states into climatic zones. This is on my flickr site right now.
