Discussions Discussion Reducing the Carbon Footprint
Tatiana Varela, March 26, 2014

Hi!
We are a student that we are pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in the Sar Ies, in Santiago de Compostela (the capital of Galicia). We are called Alba, Andrea and Tatiana.
In our city, there is not much pollution, already that the were lots of nature and barely there is noise pollution. But nonetheless suffer enough environmental pollution by cars, buses, motorcycles, etc… We believe, that if people used more bus, this would decrease.
But if we compare our city, with Madrid… Madrid has a lot of pollution, both acoustic and environmental, since there Peñas nature compared with us we have forests and many meadows.
In conclusion, Santiago, to be a city with so many visitors a year, has no or point of comparison with Madrid, which also has them. For the reason that the visitors who come to our city, most come walk to the way of Santiago and Madrid is usually go by car, by bus or by plane.
On the other hand, we are quite concerned about the overuse of technology. When we were small we saw everybody talking on the street, on buses, on all sides, or simply reading a book or a newspaper.
Now you’ll by the street and you see everybody talking on the phone, or sending a Whatsapp, or simply playing. You’re on the bus and everyone is mobile. We do this, and realize, but this is more or less, such as smoking, a habit, bad.
Not you think like us, this is quite worrying?
What conclusion do we get this issue? That technology advances if. But our brains do not.

Discussions Discussion The footprint
andrea maneiro, March 17, 2014

Hello, we are students of the ies of Sar in Santiago de Compostela in Galicia (Spain), we are doing a project in science class for the contemporary world on CO2 emissions.
We did a survey, which made us different questions which were divided into four sections: transports, House, food and purchases in response to all those questions at the end were made to an individual assessment of the emissions that we emit into the atmosphere at a given time of one week approximately. On our results have already high which particularly we issue many CO2 emissions, which leads us to think that we must raise awareness with are issues that are very important for today’s society since it can be dangerous and cause very serious in our organism diseases that affects us directly.
How should we change all emissions?
A small Internet greeting.

Discussions Discussion Student footprints
Estefanía M_Spain, March 10, 2014

Hi, my name is Estefanía, I’m from Denia, Spain and my total carbon footprint is 6.430 kg of CO₂ for year. I thought that my carbon footprint would the same or higher as the average person in Spain, and the world. But after making footprint I have realized that was below average in Spain, my score is lower because I do not use much the transport and because my results in purchases are very low. Nevertheless, my carbon footprint is higher than the worldwide average.
I think should all do something to lower our carbon footprint, for example, a good way would be to use less the transport and start recycle a lot more, among other things. Together we can save our planet.

My name is Annie and after taking the carbon footprint challenge, I noticed my food footprint was not as high as others! This is because I try to eat fresh vegetables and fruit and limit my meat intake. This shows you that every little bit helps to reduce your carbon footprint. However, my driving footprint is what I need to work on and I will try to improve!

Discussions Discussion Health & Environment
Madalyn Thomas, March 3, 2014

I truly think that healthy people are more likely to care about the environment. I think that many people in the world do not have the resources to be health and tale care of the environment, but i also think that a lot of people do not know that every little thing in the environment that you can do will help, and that you do not have to have a lot of money to make a difference. I do think that if our country did not have so many fast food places everyone would be more heathy and not down and heavy feeling all the time. The bottom is that heathy people are more likely to care more about the environment.

Discussions Discussion Do you need it??
Madalyn Thomas, March 3, 2014

I think that this is a great econ lesson! Before you buy or do anything you need to ask yourself do i need it or do i want it ? I do think that in our country that this is a problem. Many people are getting in trouble by spending money that they do not have. AKA credit!! I think that if everyone asked themselves if they really need that big truck or if they can settle for a car that will save them money on gas and i think that it would make our carbon footprint go down. I also think that this is a good thing to think about when it comes to other things such as going places all the time. I am not saying stay at home but maybe we can car pool with other people. So i do think that we should always consider the question is it a want or a need ?

Discussions Discussion cars
Madalyn Thomas, March 3, 2014

I do not think that you need to turn your car off while you are waiting for your FAST food or a red light i feel that in doing that it will make for more accidents. I do think that there are certain times that you should turn off your care. For example when you are just sitting in your car. I do not think that anyone spends enough time in the car at a fast food place or at red lights to cause our carbon foot print to go way up. I do think that people do need to pay attention to when they are just sitting in your car. Look at your carbon foot print people!! BE SMART!!!

Discussions Discussion Survive in the wild
Madalyn Thomas, March 2, 2014

I do not think that I could survive without a little help. In this day and time so many people depend on their phones and car and stores to get the things they need. I am not sure that i would be ok with it in the begging, but i would be ok after a while i could get the hang of it. I think the hardest thing to do would be to go from being able to call anyone at anytime to not being able to go call anyone or know where anyone is. I also think that it would be hard to find and cook all my own food. Starting a fire and killing an animal. I don’t think that i could do it. Going back to our bare roots would be a major change for everyone. I think that it would be very interesting to see the carbon foot print of someone in that time and someone now just to compare the two. maybe then people would be able to see how bad we really are.

Discussions Discussion Wants or needs?
Madalyn Thomas, March 2, 2014

I think that having the latest technology is a want not a need. I do think that in this day and time everyone does need some way to stay in contact with others and a way to do research if needed. I also wonder how we are going to stay up with the latest technology if they are coming up with new things everyday. So in so since technology is a need. Americans need ways to stay connected with the news and friends. That way maybe we can make our carbon foot print a little better. For example we can car pool and not waste gas going somewhere that is closed. We can find can use our technology to find places closer to where we are and so many other examples. I do think that we do need technology but i do not think that we need the latest technology. To some it all up technology is a need but the latest technology is a want.
