Below is a snapshot of my ecological foot print that was calculated by the Footprint Network:
I never considered myself a a menace to ecology. I figured it was largely due to my air travel and my utility usage; however, those changes produced meager reductions. Only a half of a planet could be salvaged.
I found it interesting that the first question (and possible aggregation) was where I live. How does existing in a country contribute to my footprint? Perhaps it is based on national policies on the accumulation of resources. It would seem that a large portion of my footprint is out of my hands, short of moving to another area. How do we delegate accountability?
Fortunately the site provides additional resources on the subject which can be found here:
