A carbon footprint or the amount of carbon-based greenhouse gases an individual, product or business produces can be difficult to visualize and therefore difficult for people to personally take into account.

So to provide us with tangible, everyday context, Carbon Visuals and the Environmental Defense Fund produced a video that transforms each metric ton of carbon dioxide expelled by humans, cars, and buildings in New York City into a turquoise bubble.

Is the video trying to portray what it would be like if a year's worth of emissions broke loose in 2 minutes?
