    Smile carbon neutral people

    According to experts, carbon neutral people are those who remove as much CO2 from the atmosphere as they add to it throught their daily activities. ...
    People must use their air-conditioners, dryers and other devices; they must replace old, inefficient appliances with new, more efficient ones.


    For a start, how would you define "neutral" in the above context in a few words?
    Second, do devices, appliances, tools, and machines all mean about the same?
    Thanks.

    Re: carbon neutral people

    #1 It is a technical term - you balance the amount of CO2 you produce against what you use, so that there is no excess in either direction. It is a neutral state.

    #2 Yes - though why these people "must" use them is not easy to understand.
