So when ever a strange change in climate it is probably from carbon dioxide.The main producers on carbon footprints are population, economic output, and energy and carbon intensity of the economy.

What is a Carbon Footprint?

Is the carbon footprint per individual, per family, per community, or could it be all three? What energy do you use in your home, when you travel to and from school or during your daily life?  What resources does it take to maintain your life style?
