Activities galore can be found on our Leaky Lounge forum today as we celebrate Earth Day! Neville kicks off this eco-friendly event which will feature fun games, quizzes, discussions, and much more. An environmentally-conscious scavenger hunt is set to commence at 12pm EST today and run until 4:30pm. In the mean time, you can check your carbon footprint, find new and fun crafting opportunities with recycled goods, make Earth Day icons, or just join in the main chat with everyone and discuss Earth Day. Finally, the Shrieking Shack Arcade is open for some fun and games as well. All this and more can be found in our special Earth Day Forum on the Leaky Lounge. Be sure to stop by now and enjoy!

Do you think broomsticks create carbon emissions?

xD That’s a good question.

Well, since broomsticks are not “powered” by carbon-based fuel, it is quite unlikely that carbon emissions would be a by-product.

Now since flying broomsticks are powered by magic (and magic is not carbon-based), what,  if any, would be the emission?

IMHO – The Wizarding World is much more “in touch” with the natural world and as a result their “fuel” needs are much more environmentally friendly and they may go so far as to being environmentally beneficial! :-)

I will try to repost to make reading easier: Well, since broomsticks are not “powered” by carbon-based fuel, it is quite unlikely that carbon emissions would be a by-product.

The Wizarding World is less green as you may think. They all light their homes by oil lamps or candles, heat and cook by burining wood or coal all of wicth give off green house gasses (ie. Carbon Monoxcide, and Carbon Dioxcide). Now they do not normaly use mugle trasportation (cars, truck, electric trains) so they are not adding to the plotion like that.

Note: I do like the Hogwarts train evan thow burns coal or fule oil becasue i like/love the steam engion erra trains.

I think wizards produce less carbon based emmisions because there was never really a problem with pollution until everyone had cars, electricity, etc. All that electricity has to come from somewhere.
