What’s the Carbon Footprint of Your Bracket?

March Madness is in full swing and basketball fans everywhere are eagerly checking their brackets. In the spirit of this basketball fever, the consultants at Booz Allen Hamilton have created a tool to see what the carbon footprint of your bracket would be.
