Footprint

No, not the memory footprint of Xfce. My ecological footprint according to this site.

    CATEGORY / GLOBAL HECTARES
    FOOD  / 1.5
    MOBILITY / 1.7
    SHELTER / 1.7
    GOODS/SERVICES / 2.7
    TOTAL FOOTPRINT / 7.6

Not too bad, you would say, considering Brian got 24, but…

    IN COMPARISON, THE AVERAGE ECOLOGICAL FOOTPRINT IN YOUR COUNTRY IS 4.8 GLOBAL HECTARES PER PERSON.

I don’t know where they got this figure, but I have a very hard time believing that. I have a small car, a small house, produce little waste and usually don’t fly. That should be below average, except maybe for the 130km a day I have to drive, so let’s say average, not 1.5 times higer.

    WORLDWIDE, THERE EXIST 1.8 BIOLOGICALLY PRODUCTIVE GLOBAL HECTARES PER PERSON. 
	
    IF EVERYONE LIVED LIKE YOU, WE WOULD NEED 4.2 PLANETS. 

Oops ;-)

  1. Hmm… the site didn’t work for me today:
    “Active Server Pages error ‘ASP 0126′”

    Was this just an Earth day site, or is it supposed to work even now (as well as something should on Active Server)?

  2. The test is a bit skewed, try to fill the answer as if you were a baby or a teenager, most of their footprint is shared, that’s why the number are higher for the typical answer.
