How Much Carbon Dioxide Do I Emit?
Most people’s lifestyles result in far more CO2 emissions than what is sustainable. Bjorn wanted to find out how much carbon dioxide he emits. He began to log his transportation, meals, heating and electricity use, and general consumption by using a combination of tools to track his CO2 emissions. In this video, he discusses what he did and the hard lessons we all must learn that even despite his efforts to not use more than is sustainable, he still lives outside of the range.
What's My Indoor Environment Like?
Bob Troia wanted to better understand the risks and the negative health effects caused by poor air quality, the water he drinks and showers with and different types of electromagnetic radiation that surrounds him. In this talk, Bob shares with us what he did to track his indoor environment and some very subtle and shocking results with simple solutions (i.e. open a window when you sleep to reduce the Co2) to help keep one's indoor environment healthier.
Keeping Track Of My Personal Development
Juvoni Beckford discusses how tracking helped him rise above the impoverished area he grew up in in the Bronx. Using mobile apps/services, Juvoni talks about the core areas of tracking that helped him train his intuition to form keystone habits that helped take him where he wanted to go.
Stefano Schiavon is an assistant professor and researcher interested in sustainable building design. As he told us at last month’s Quantified Self meetup in Berkeley, California, “I am Italian. I love architecture. And I think buildings are beautiful.” Stefano and his colleagues have embarked on a series of studies to better understand people’s individual preferences for their environments and they are doing it with QS tools. Watch to learn some of their findings.
