    Default What is your ecological footprint ?

    We work to live, and to live is to, play "Total War" or drive a VR-4

    17. If everyone lived like me, we would need 3.8 planets. Fortunatly there are all those starving people in Africa that let me live this way.

    13 acres (~5.3 hectares) about half my national average, but i'm still using nearly 3 earths worth of my share!
    now i'm here, and history is vindicated.

    The only quibble I have is that it should say:

    " WORLDWIDE, THERE EXIST 4.5 BIOLOGICALLY PRODUCTIVE ACRES PER PERSON.



    IF EVERYONE LIVED LIKE YOU, WE WOULD NEED 3.8 PLANETS, or we would need to make each acre more biologically productive"

    A few ambigous questions in there.

    My mobility has certainly increased since getting a station wagon a couple of weeks ago compared with just using public transport. But when I did the questionaire a second time my mobility while using public transport only dropped to 1.2 compared with 1.3???

    Also it begs the question. Should I limit my consumption because of another nations lack of contraception?

    Given that Australia has the same landmass of Europe, but only 1/20th of the population.

    Mind you that is deceptive given the lack of water in Aus.

    I find it odd that it, seeminly, parallels having a lower score w/ being a better person, or at least, being better for the world. It is neither desirable nor healthy to live packed in like sardines; simply put, it is not my fault that some seem to have issues with either using contraceptives or limmiting how much sex they have unprotected. If anything, it shows that we have a huge problem w/ overpopulation.

    22 acres, requiring 5.1 planets.

    This has confirmed my belief that we need to support the space program, 'casue we need more planets

    3.5 Global Hectares or 1.9 Planets not terrible, but the Reason I get away with it most of the time is because I live on a small Island where you can buy everything Fresh in the morning and everything I need is within a half mile walk of my Condo. Also the Resort has a Solar Powered Roof so that cuts down a lot on Energy use. Damn Hippies and their earth.

    So I'm guessing the moral of the story is we should all be eating wheat germ 3 times a day and living in Chinese style high rise appartment buildings, but with no electricity or running water and we all take public transportation everywhere?

    Isn't that going to befoul the few remaining biologically productive acres we have out there? All that human waste accumulating?

    I would love to see the assumptions behind this thing. It does look all of the eco-facscists ideals rolled up into one ball of wax.
