The graphs show monthly mean carbon dioxide measured at Mauna Loa Observatory, Hawaii. The carbon dioxide data on Mauna Loa constitute the longest record of direct measurements of CO 2 in the atmosphere. They were started by C. David Keeling of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in March of 1958 at a facility of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration[Keeling, 1976].
Environmental footprints are quantitative measures showing the appropriation of natural resources by humans ( Hoekstra, 2008). Footprints are divided into environmental, economic, and social footprints, and combined environmental, social, and/or economic footprints (Čuček et al., 2012c). The concept of footprint originates from the idea of ecological footprint - EF (Fang et al., 2014) introduced by Rees (1992).

The Trewartha climate classification is a climate classification system first published by American geographer Glenn Thomas Trewartha in 1966. It is a modified version of the Köppen–Geiger system, created to answer some of its deficiencies. The Trewartha system attempts to redefine the middle latitudes to be closer to vegetation zoning and genetic climate systems. It was considered a more true or real world reflection of the global climate.

Everything we consume, be it a hamburger, or a webpage, places a certain amount of demand on the planet's natural resources. Taken together, all these things make up your environmental impact, sometimes expressed as your eco-footprint. These facts are just a small glimpse on a vast and complicated topic. And we've deliberately avoided facts about recycling, as that's a list for another day.
