Does the carbon footprint of cooking go up during the summer because more people are Grilling?

    It depends on how you’re grilling. Charcoal grills leave a larger carbon footprint than gas grills. But, we must remember that when people are grilling, they generally are not using energy (or as much energy) to cook inside the kitchen. They also might not be using their inside lights, opening the fridge as much, or turning the air conditioning on as high, since they’re outside. I would imagine that the carbon footprint of summertime recreational cooking isn’t that much different from that of regular cooking.
