F ) Student (Aged 18–21) Having left their family homes our two subjects have now become very much more responsible for their personal GHG emissions and climate impact. One of the first and most important decisions they make is their form of transport while students in London. Mr Meyer opts to use his bike and an all year public transport pass costing £264 and leading to annual GHG emissions of around 260 kg. Meanwhile, Mr Black chooses to buy and use a 7 year old hatchback for his transport. Purchase and maintenance costs aside, this option costs him £407 a year in fuel and produces over tow tonnes of GHG.

Dashed lines represent fluxes of carbon as calcium carbonate. The units for all fluxes are Pg C/yr, the units for all compartments are Pg C. 1 Pg C is equal to 1015 g, or 1 gigatonne (Gt).
