"Carbon is the backbone of life on Earth. We are made of carbon, we eat carbon, and our civilizations—our economies, our homes, our means of transport—are built on carbon"... http://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/Features/CarbonCycle/
In 2005, an average of over 120,000 vehicles travelled through Annandale each day (RTA Data). If all these vehicles were the 2010 Holden VE SIDI Commodore Berlina and they travelled just 1km, they would have generated 301g CO2-e(greenguide) each. The total CO2-e equivalent generated by Traffic through Annandale, in just one day, would be 301g*120,000 vehicles =36,120kg....Carbon Footprint of Daily Traffic through Annandale

The mineral graphite /ˈɡræfaɪt/ is an allotrope of carbon. It was named by Abraham Gottlob Werner in 1789 from the Ancient Greek γράφω (graphō), "to draw/write", for its use in pencils, where it is commonly called lead (not to be confused with the metallic element lead). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graphite
'Coal (from the Old English term col, which has meant "mineral of fossilized carbon" since the 13th century) is a combustible black or brownish-black sedimentary rock usually occurring in rock strata in layers or veins called coal beds or coal seams.' - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coal
The Annandale Sewer Aqueducts carry sewerage over White and Johnston's Creek to the Main Sewer to a treatment plant at Bondi. At the Bondi, Sydney Water captures biogas, mainly methane, produced in the wastewater treatment process, and converts it to electricity. There are biogas cogeneration plants at Malabar, Cronulla, North Head, Bondi and Wollongong. The Bondi cogeneration plant was fully operational in May 2009. Source: Sydney Water 2009 Annual Report
