What’s your ecological footprint?

What’s your ecological footprint? If everybody lived like me, we’d need 4.4 planets to support us. Ouch. I thought I’d come out better since I don’t own a car, but it doesn’t seem to take carpooling into account. I took the biggest hit in the food category, though. An Atkins diet (with lots of meat and eggs) takes a lot of environment to support. 🙁

    just need that .3 and i’m set!

  2. Nice! At least we cancel each other out in terms of the Australian average… 🙂

  3. Even worse at 5.3! I thought that my lack of weekday driving would put me in better stead but no dice. Having a large house doesn’t help, nor does living in the states in general. It certainly hammers home the disparity between the ‘average’ U.S. lifestyle and the majority of the world.

  4. 2.5 planets here. I do a lot of walking, but I’m big on the processed food from out of town…

  5. 2.3 here. My little apartment and diet helped me out.

  6. well, i certainly score much worse now i live in texas than i did when i lived in singapore….poor public transport, a bigger house, riding in cars to get anywhere and everywhere is so much further away, so drinking up even more petrol. yikes!

  7. Wow. 2.9 – I thought I would score a lot better since I rarely leave the house, and only travel about 10 miles a week…. as well as cutting back meat and animal products to 1 to 2 days a week. This quiz made me feel bad – it should have just given me 10 planets…. because I would still feel the same way I do now. *sigh*

  8. Ratio is 4.7 so about 2.7 planets. Something good there about not being able to drive and being a veggie.

  9. I didn’t know you were vegetarian, Martin! Is that a recent thing or was I just unobservant?

  10. You were unobservant. 🙂 I hide it well, like being Welsh! Though you found that out on click manchester. Think it made the quote list. Those were the days eh? 😉

    Been veggie since 95. Though Tuna mayo is my emergancy sarnie if the only other options are total rubbish.
