The city's celebration for the first time will be carbon neutral, with The City of Sydney Council ordering a carbon audit into its all New Year's Eve activities.Is there truly a way to measure all the CO2, or carbon as they now sweepingly call it, emitted during an event like this?
It will measure emissions from fuels and fireworks used during the event, electricity consumption and waste created in the lead-up to and during the big party.
Lord Mayor Clover Moore said the council would then offset the emissions by purchasing environmentally-friendly power and carbon credits.
I'm not a fireworks person - F111 dump and burn, yee-har. Fireworks? Nah, not so much. However, I don't begrudge those who enjoy fireworks.
