The Miles and Carbon in My Lunch

My lunch was a cheeseburger, with jam on bread followed by a banana, yogurt and a glass of orange juice. The total miles it took to get it here was 11,538. To convert that mileage into pounds of CO2 you have to multiply every mile by 3.67. The product of that is 43,267.5 pounds of carbon. That's the weight of 4.3 elephant!
