The ecological footprint calculator

Use the ecological footprint calculator( to determine how many Earths we would need to live sustainably if everyone lived as you did. You may be surprised. According to the Conversation Ecology textbook, we would need four Earths if everyone lived as the average American did! Next, try the questionnaire again and make one change that you think will reduce your footprint. Then change this parameter back to its original value and try making a different change. Keep track of your results and try this for three different aspects of your lifestyle. What three changes did you make, and which one had the greatest effect on your ecological footprint? Why do you think that this lifestyle change had such a big effect? Is this a real change that you might be able to implement soon? Why or why not?
