Sorry for the newbie question... Is there a good free carbon footprint calculator somewhere? I've searched around without much luck. The six I found on the internet made big assumptions or oversimplified things in ways that seemed to skew the results. They were easy to use but I guess I want something a bit more detailed. Depending on which I use, my family's footprint is somewhere between 22 tons and 8 tons per year And they didn't seem to indicate any way to make your footprint negative (Paul's eco-scale level 6 or above).

I tried the WWF calculator, carbonfootprint.com, nature conservancy, EPA, footprint network and cool climate Berkley calculators

Hmm, it's been a week and no replies. Did I put this in the wrong section? Or maybe I answered my own question and there isn't a good free calculator out there....
