Earth Day - My Ecological Footprint

In honor of Earth Day, I took the Ecological Footprint Quiz . . . here are some of the results:

  • If everyone on the planet lived my lifestyle, we would need = 4.79 Earths

  • My footprint in global acres by consumption category:
Carbon Footprint = 59.2
Food Footprint = 65.7
Housing Footprint = 20.2
Goods & Services Footprint = 40.6

Total = 185.7

The US averages for these are:

Carbon Footprint = 91.4
Food Footprint = 65.7
Housing Footprint = 31.6
Goods & Services Footprint = 57.7

Total = 246.4

My results are 75% of the US average.

I would have thought I'd have a better score. I guess we've got a lot more work to do!
