Mija H-Slovenia, May 10, 2012

Hello. I’m Mija and I’m 16 years old teenager from Slovenia.
I live in a small village named Trebizani. I am on high school now, on gymnasium. My school is about 24 kilometrs far away from Sezana, where my school is. So I have to take public transport, bus, to get to my school.
One day our english teacher told us about calculating Carbon Footprint. So we did it. My footprint is a little bit lower than footprint in our country. At transport my average is almost the same as in my country is. But the average at home is a little bit higher. I think my problem is that I don’t turn off the lights when I leave the room. My average at food is pretty lower than average in Slovenia. And the last thing that is pretty surprising to me, that the my purchases are lower than average in my country.
I think the Carbon Footprint is good to tell us what are we doing wrong, and to improve ourselves about “being green”.

    Here in the united states, in ohio, having a 11,000 is low. But reading some of these posts you would think that we are very high. a friend of mine had 21000 and that was just around normal.

    Hi My name is Hannan Hassan, but i am using my friend’s account because there is something wrong with mine. I think that you are really skin :p. But you have to eat more to have some energy, and take care of the lights and water at home, close them if you are not using them.

Aja T-Slovenia, May 9, 2012

Hey, my name is Aja Trebec and I’m from Dutovlje, a village near Sežana in Slovenia. I go to gymnasium in Sežana, so I have to take public transport to get to. One day, our school teacher told us to participate in this CO2 Footprint Challenge, hoping that we would learn about how much CO2 we produce and to aware us about those serious problems of world pollution.
My footprint is under the footprint average of my country, because the footprint average in Slovenia is 7362 kg, but my is 3618 kg per year. And I’m actually happy that it’s lower, because we should think about getting more responsible and save our planet.
For transportation I produce 1771 kg of CO2 per year, which is 603 kg less of the average person of my country. But I think I could take more public transport to get to Koper (where I train dance) and sometimes I should go to my final destination walking, running or cycling.
At home, we recycle 95% of our trash and we put it into different bins. Each one has a different colour - for example: we put all the paper into a red bin, etc.. We also compost organic food to get more land for our garden, where we produce different sorts of vegetables. However, it would be nice to save water, too. We should eat more vegetables and fruits that are locally producted and less meat to become healthier.
I think, that the problem of buying too much things that we even don’t need is getting bigger and bigger. A lot of people spend their money for clothes, accessories and other non-use things, which they like for about half a year and then, they throw them away, not knowing how much CO2 they produce.

I’m looking foward to change my way of transportation and help to not produce too much CO2. :)

abdelhamid derawi, May 5, 2012

Hey, it’s Abdelhamid EL Derawi at the moment I live in Cairo, Egypt. I go the American International School here in Egypt.

I got to measure my carbon footprint a couple of weeks ago. This process was done by using an online calculator. “http://footprint.stanford.edu/footprint2.html ” according to the information we had received our country average was around 4000-5000 were this was way below my own average. My average was absolutely shocking. It was above the usual were it stood at 20000+even more. It had come from my house and purchase.
This means I have to find a way and quickly to save mother Earth. I can easily use carpooling for transportation and other stuff for the other footprints. On the other hand my footprint can be decreased if I don’t use plastic bags, then turn off the light when I leave my room. Then I would decrease my use of electronics, and turn all things off while I am not using them. This includes T.V, laptop and all other related stuff.
THANK YOU :)

My carbon footprint was lower in all of the categories except for the transportation category. I think a good way to lower this would be to make use of “Devin Gardner’s” double bicycle. A problem with this though is that we may eat more food increasing our carbon footprint in other categories. Maybe Devin and i can design a sail for windy days and solar panels for sunny days.

    I agree with you most of the people have cars. I Agree to ride a bike because it will strongly help you reduce your carbon footprint and it will be better for the environment.
  • DANIEL SEDANO DANIEL SEDANO May 5, 2012
    Hi my name is Daniel Sedano and my highest category was also trasportation.
    i agree with you that using the bycycle will hepl you to reduce your co2
  • Ziad Hindawy Ziad Hindawy May 6, 2012
    I think that this is a very creative and healthy idea, for you and the environment.

    My family takes metal food cans and just about any other kind of metal to a recycling center about once every two months.
  • shahd bahaa shahd bahaa May 4, 2012
    recycling is a great way to reduce the co2 that factories give off, and bikes are great for the amout of co2 cars produce. you can make more people involved in your plan like your family and friends to get a greater result. great job keep up the good work and i might try to use your plan even though the bike part is a bit hard for me considering i live im egypt. just keep it up.

    I know it protects you when your body is invaded by pathogens and can keep you healthy at times were you could of gotten sick.
  • Randy B Sweden Randy B Sweden May 5, 2012
    I know that the human body has an adaptive immune system, and one that is native. But what is really interesting is how the adaptive immune system work. I know that this type of immune system is driven by the lymphocytes. I wonder, what makes these antibodies able to adapt to what virus/bakteria that has entered the immune system? Does it have anything to do with their DNA or do they perhaps have a circle shaped DNA like the prokaryote (that is able to adapt)?

Hey! I’m Veronica from North Adams High School. I did my carbon calculations last week and I was shocked to see my results. I didn’t realize how much carbon was realized by purchasing things. Any ideas how to reduce my average?

    hey, look you could reuse things you know you don't really need more of, that way factories don't have to produce as much. you could also use recycable bags instead of plastic bags at the market or whatever…
  • Shaneikiah Bickham Shaneikiah Bickham May 8, 2012
    great ideas, jasmine!
  • Farah makhlouf Farah makhlouf May 20, 2012
    Hi my name is Hannan Hassan, but i am using my friend’s account because there is something wrong with mine. I have a very good idea, you can reduce the use of plastic bags, like when you go shopping reuse the bags more than once. Recycle things like plastics and papers.

Karly Boerger, April 25, 2012

Hey everyone! I’m Karly from North Adams High School. When I did my carbon calculations I was surprised everything was lower than the average except my transportation. Wow, my transportation was extremely high compared to the average but it’s understandable because of sports I play and living out of the city, you have to drive at least 15min. to get to anything. Any ideas on how to reduce it? Just post if you do.

    karly you could always run to school or anywhere
  • Robbie McCormick Robbie McCormick April 27, 2012
    Karly, carpooling to school and other activities with neighbors would be the most effective way to reduce your transportaion emissons.

Hi,I’m Kathrine and i am a student from North Adams High school taking part in the Carbon Footprint challenge,I am amazed at how much just my household alone contributes to the amount of carbon released into the atmosphere.

    I agree with Mahmoud. We should turn all lights that we don't need off, unplug all electrical machines that we don't need…. There are also so many other things that we could do….We just need to get used to that. This could really help us to decrease our carbon footprint.

    Hi my name is Hannan Hassan, but i am using my friend’s account because there is something wrong with mine. I totally agree with you Katherine, all of us our highest category was the home one. But we can use less electricity by turning it off if we don't need and also take shower in 10 minutes instead of 1 hour. Also we can close the water while we are brushing our teeth.
