event planning carcon calculator

I am looking for a friendly carbon-footprint estimator for events (small business meetings or conferences). I have been googling around but can't fine one that I saw about a month ago. I am looking for something that would give me a quick estimate based on # people, distance traveled, and number of days/space. Thanks.

There are several calculators out there, I think this one has all the variables you mentioned. (Disclaimer: I have no idea how accurate these things are and different calculators are probably all going to come up with different results)

Good for you for thinking of these things. The following sites have some related info:

Response by poster: Thanks much for the links. I am trying to convince an organization that our board meetings should be carbon neutral. I did eventually find the one I had seen at first at Native Energy. FWIW, I also came across a more skeptical article in Salon that is worth a read. Thanks again!
