It's fun, it's healthy, it's good exercise. The kids will just love it. and we put a little sand inside to make the experience more pleasant.

:( I need to drive more (and I need a really big car that goes really fast and gets really shitty gas mileage).

I don't think it has to go fast - ours doesn't.

I guess no public transportation is really what kills on this test.

Pathetic.
Never forget what you are. The rest of the world will not. Wear it like armor, and it can never be used to hurt you.

CATEGORY GLOBAL HECTARES

FOOD 1.5

MOBILITY 0.3

SHELTER 1.3

GOODS/SERVICES 0.9

TOTAL FOOTPRINT 4



IN COMPARISON, THE AVERAGE ECOLOGICAL FOOTPRINT IN YOUR COUNTRY IS 5.3 GLOBAL HECTARES PER PERSON.

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




IF EVERYONE LIVED LIKE YOU, WE WOULD NEED 2.2 PLANETS.


This is a good thing (although it made me feel guity, seeing your scores makes me feel like a egan living in a recylcled house)
I hate purity. Hate goodness. I don't want virtue to exist anywhere. I want everyone corrupt.

8/4.4

Yep, the "no public transport" got me as well.

Like FNG, I feel like becoming vegan and moving into a recycled shelter with solar panels, while sharing with 10 others, and cycling everywhere :roll: (no fucking chance)

16.8 / 9.3 planets required. Unapologetic.

Anybody else rack up over 100 hours of flight time?

My footprint: 3.3/1.8.

Most of it consisted of public transportation every day at at least 10 hours of airplane time. I don't eat a lot of meat, don't generate a lot of garbage, and don't own a car. I walk a lot when I'm not on the Tube to and from work. In fact, I haven't even been inside a car since the start of 2006. It's not really a conscious choice mind; just my lifestyle.

I totally forgot about the free gas policy you have over there.
