This is a little hack using the AMEEconnect API (http://www.amee.com) to add carbon counting to Minecraft. It detects when things burn and then translates that into carbon emissions using the IPCC stationary combustion methodology (http://discover.amee.com/categories/S...) from the AMEE platform. The mod just sends the mass of material, and AMEE works out the rest.

The mod handles smelting of materials in furnaces, settings fire to things (including cows), exploding creepers, and even makes the clouds go black when you pollute too much. And of course, once you've turned your world into an unpleasant hellhole, you can plant some trees to make it nice and shiny again.

At this moment this is a quick hack, but with any luck, source code and a proper Minecraft mod should be available soon. It's built using our Java SDK, and in total it's around 300 lines of code. It was built at the Stockholm Green Hackathon in about 12 hours by @floppy.
