JOURNAL #10 ECOLOGICAL FOOTPRINTING

Proprietary Lecture Notes
 

           

Please read about Ecological Footprint. Click on this site, read the article  and calculate an ecological footprint for you and your family based upon your responses on these variables:

1.  Water Use

2.  Food

3.  Transportation

4.  Shelter

5.  Energy Use

6.  Clothing

7.  Stuff

8.  Fun

Calculate your total score and divide it by 100.  That will yield a ecological footprint measured in hectares.  The hectare is the principal metric unit of land measurement for most of the world.  1 hectare = 2.47 acres.

Write Journal #10 describing your ecological footprint based upon your lifestyle as measured by your scores on these 8 categories.  Compare your score to the average score for other countries.  Email your Journal #10 on ecological footprint by Monday, April 27 by 6 pm.
