CO2 is usually measured in terms of pounds. But what does a pound of carbon dioxide look like? Given a certain pressure and temperature, the volume of 1 pound of CO2 would look like this. Large enough to fill a cube 2 feet 1 inch high or a sphere 30.5 inches across (the size of a large rubber exercise ball).

But since I ride by bike to work about 20 miles roundtrip, I save about 25 pounds of carbon dioxide each day!!
