    Holy Smoke!

    :o Good golly, my score was 6.4 planets!!!!! Frankly, I think I lost points because I don't have a public transportation option (live on an island!), and, my physical disability limits my biking or walking over ten miles!!! Shucks, what about our geriatric society with even higher needs? Me thinks my colleagues at the Smithsonian or NOAA would not be real happy with my score.:( I never considered myself a wasteful, or thoughtless user of energy.

    Living on the Chesapeake Bay most of my life, we have learned to temper our needs and actively participate in Conservation Programs. We have to, the living environment depends on it. Admittedly, my house is not covered in a grass roof, I don't have sky lights, and, I do throw out the occassional newspaper now! (My Tristan use to pee pee on them, and, I thought was good enough for recycling!). There has to be moderation, sensibility, cooperation, and, a sense of accomplishment on the level of the particpators in any consevation project to get results. Agreed, this was a skewed quiz! Even the smallest effort to conserve counts in today's world.

    We can fix this

    Everyone who thinks that humans are destroying the planet, please raise your hands.

    Ok, everyone with their hand in the air, please get off the planet before you cause any more damage.

    Thank You

    CATEGORY ACRES

    FOOD 6.2

    MOBILITY 1.2

    SHELTER 4.9

    GOODS/SERVICES 5.7

    TOTAL FOOTPRINT 18



    IN COMPARISON, THE AVERAGE ECOLOGICAL FOOTPRINT IN YOUR COUNTRY IS 24 ACRES PER PERSON.

    WORLDWIDE, THERE EXIST 4.5 BIOLOGICALLY PRODUCTIVE ACRES PER PERSON.




    IF EVERYONE LIVED LIKE YOU, WE WOULD NEED 4.1 PLANETS.
    :hmm: interesting....do I get to chose who to send to Uranus?

    Perhaps we should send the letter "D" to Uranus....that would be...Dan, Daredevil, Dehawk, diGriz......now that's a start!
