Global footprint calculator, link courtesy chaizzilla

My global footprint in hectares:

FOOD 2.2

MOBILITY 1.3

SHELTER 1.6

GOODS/SERVICES 2.2

TOTAL FOOTPRINT 7.3

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 4.1 PLANETS.

Take the quiz yourself here.

i'm not sure how they do their math..
i got a footprint of 16,
and it said if everyone lived like me we'd need 3.6 planets, how is it that i had a much higher footprint than you and yet we'd need fewer planets?!

what were the unnits of measurement?

I took it and got something comparatively low-ish (reasons explained in my own LJ) then out of curiosity I took it again, keeping all my answers the same except I said I lived in the US instead. And my score shot up, from "1.8 planets" to "3.8".

Of course one major failing with this quiz is the point that "if everyone lived like me" there wouldn't be 6 billion people in the world.
