ecological footprint

i don't often link to the various quizes that are on line - but here is an interesting one with some value: ecological footprint quiz

The quiz is based on national consumption averages and is meant to give an idea of ones Ecological Footprint relative to other people in your country. It is not highly detailed, but should give most people an idea of where they stand.

My Quiz Results
CATEGORY | GLOBAL HECTARES
FOOD | 2.6
MOBILITY | 0.3
SHELTER | 0.9
GOODS/SERVICES | 0.9
TOTAL FOOTPRINT | 4.7

IN COMPARISON, THE AVERAGE ECOLOGICAL FOOTPRINT IN YOUR COUNTRY IS 8.8 GLOBAL HECTARES PER PERSON.

WORLDWIDE, THERE EXIST 1.8 BIOLOGICALLY PRODUCTIVE GLOBAL HECTARES PER PERSON.

IF EVERYONE LIVED LIKE YOU, WE WOULD NEED 2.6 PLANETS.

I take up 5.1 global hectares.

I guess I'm just one of those larger-than-life personalities who takes up a little extra space.

Or I suck because I live alone and eat meat.
