Abstract

The objective of this research went to analyze participation behavior and assess greenhouse gas emission from consumption and energy usage in Kutchik Subdistrict Municipality, Sung neon District, Nakhon Ratchasima Province. The sample size was 1,193 households. Using G * Power 3.0.10 program determined sample size and the sample group consisted of 119 households. For appropriateness, 120 households were assigned. This research using probability sampling by choosing a simple random sampling method. Field data was collected by using the data recording form and the analysis of greenhouse gas storage was compared through Allometric equation. The research found that greenhouse gas emissions equal to 2,099,295.75 kilograms of carbon dioxide equivalent per year and the amount of greenhouse gas storage from trees that we plant is equal to 37,098.60 kilograms of carbon dioxide equivalent per year. The storage of greenhouse gases in the form of biomass from trees show that we plant is not enough to absorb greenhouse gases from consumption and energy usage. Therefore, the villagers in Kutchik Subdistrict Municipality should be adjusted to participate behavior, reduce consumption, reduce energy use and increase green areas, in order to develop the area into a low-carbon society with public participation behavior, because greenhouse gases lead to Global warming.
