Carbon Labeling?

Here is a recent proposal from Rui Zhao and colleagues for a new carbon labeling system for consumer products. They propose that all products be labeled with their "carbon emissions intensity ratio", which is a measure of the product's contribution to the carbon intensity of the overall economy. The image shows the authors suggested labeling for three kinds of milk.

If you are interested in the carbon rating for the authors' full list of products, look at Table 1 in the paper, which is available open-access from Environmental Research Letters here:
