Last night, I was looking through the carbon calculator just to get an idea of what kind of data I would be in charge of collecting. However, I soon realized a flaw in the time line we were observing. Simply put, it would be impossible for me to come up with data for the remainder of the 2010 school year. I'm sure a few of you have hit this same brick wall.
I then turned to my handy-dandy Carbon Emissions 2008 Report for answers. I realized in their report, they monitored the 2006-2007 school year, which made sense to me. So I pose these questions to you:
Would it be beneficial to continue this trend and monitor the 2008-2009 school year? Wouldn't this make our data more sound when comparing it in the years to come? Does it make sense to use data which already exists in comparison to data which will involve a greater measure of guess-work?
What is your opinion?
