The global calculator uses NASA'a famous "Earth's Lights" satellite mosaic and an annual average solar downwelling plot to do the calculations by selecting urbanis/zed areas according to their level of brightness and then inputting an albedo or solar reflectivity increase to get an offset to global warming in watts and kilograms of CO2e, as well as, as a percentage of current global warming.

The local calculator takes an area in square meters along with a proposed increase in albedo or solar reflectivity to give a result in dollars USD, watts, kilograms of CO2e and as a percentage of global warming.

The program also contains a short cartoon, "The Dolphins", where "George & Ralph" talk about global warming and what we Humans can do about it! .
