    You shouldn't be so embarrassed! In America we are lead to live a very wasteful lifestyle:) So lighten up and get a hybrid car! Small changes are just as good, and can add up over time! No need to drop your life and move to a cabin in the woods!

    Hello Vinny! My name is Aziz and my total carbon footprint is very high compared to my region, I think I'll try to reduce the pollution that currently produce.

    Hi! I think yor total footprint is very very high, it is higher than the average of the USA. To decrease it you could start to change your lifestyle.You can use public transport and solar panels to change that.

josh h, May 14, 2013

Hey to everyone! My name is Josh and i live in Pennsylvania and go to Central Bucks West Highschool. My total footprint came out to be 14,921 kg of CO2 per year. The average for my State is 20,301 kg per. MY transportation is 887 kg, my home is 6,213 kg, my food is 7189 kg, and my purchases are 631 kg. I expected my footprint to be alot more then it was, but mine is still high and needs to be lowered by a good amount. I think that i eat alot more then the average person in my region and maybe i could cut back on that. Also i use quite alot of energy at my home, and i could solve this problem by being more conservative with the lights in the house, the tv, and turning off appliances when i am not using them. Anyways i have alot to work on and think this project is producitve and that everyone should get involved and make the earth awesomer to live on! Peace to all people.

Caitlyn Black, May 14, 2013

Hey everyone, I’m Caitlyn Black from United States and I live in Pennsylvania. I never gave any thought to how much of an impact I have on the enviroment, it’s crazy how only one person, me, can have such a big effect. My total carbon footprint is 12, 030 (Transportation: 924 kg, Home: 9265 kg, Food: 1522, Purchases: 319). I feel bad, I feel like I’m taking advantage of the earth and everything it provides me and I want to change. I’m 17 years old and I got my first car a couple months ago. I feel as though any car that runs of gasoline is a waste of money, considering the fact that gas will be gone is about 30 years if we continue stealing it from the ground. I dont want to eat dairy as much, because of how many pollutants it puts into the air that we are breathing. It’s scary just knowing my own carbon footprint, but what about the people who have more than me? Even averaging everyone’s footprint and multiplying it by EVERYONE on the planet….that’s a lot of carbon and pollutants.

    yoo Caitlyn. You shouldn't feel bad! It's great that you now want to reduce your carbon footprint and are already setting goals for yourself. My carbon footprint is about 7000kg more. You should definitely consider taking more public transportation and doing more to reduce home CO2 emission.

Caitlyn L, May 14, 2013

Hi I’m Caitlyn from the US and I recently calculated my carbon footprint. My results were 2581 for transportation, 5337 for my region, 12820 for my home, and the average for my region is 7841. For food my amount was 2205 and my region was 4638, and my purchases were 732 and my region was 2486.So overall my personal scores were all under the average scores from my region. My total was 18339 kg of CO₂ per year, the average of my region is 20301 kg for Pennsylvania, USA. There are many ways that I could potentially reduce my carbon footprint.

    Hello Caitlyn! I think a way to lower your carbon footprint is to install a solar panel system in your home and check if your local government support economically their installation.
  • Miguel Mendoza Miguel Mendoza May 22, 2013
    Hello Caitlyn yes you should find ways that will help you reduce you carbon footprint. Some ideas could be replacing you light bulbs, unplugging things that run energy like phone chargers etc. Hope this helps keep up the good work.

    Hello Evan, I'm Zoran and I live in Italy, your carbon footprint is very high, in particular for transport. To reduce this type of pollution can reduce short trips in the car and go on foot or by public transport.

    That's great, that's a very low footprint for your area. What do you do that makes your transportation so low?

Martin Sedlar, May 14, 2013

Hi again,my name is Martin and I live in Varazdin,Croatia.My total carbon footprint was 5553 kg of CO2.That’s less than the average Croatian.For transporation I use my bike and my legs,so I don’t produce carbon emission in that field.I am not a vegetarian,I eat meat and meat has a large carbon footprint.When I go in purchase I always use the same bag and no plastic bags which other people get in stores.This discussion showed me how to produce less carbon emission and I’m glad that I was bellow average in Croatia.It’s a great project and I think that people in this project will stimulate other people to join in this project and make the Earth a better place for living.Bye ;)

    Your footprint is signifcantly lower than mine of 9696 kg, and it's really opened my eyes to how much lower most of the world's footprints are compared to my country. What are ways you go about trying to lower your footprint that you think I could adapt to?
  • veronica berneri veronica berneri May 16, 2013
    hello Maritn I think the way you porodure less carbon can be a very good method. But not everyone can have the possibility to produce little carbon footprint because they live in cool places and far from schools for example and then have to use more energy and transport!

eliana S, May 14, 2013

Hi, my name is Eliana and I live in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. My total footprint is 11,271 kg of CO2 per year. That’s a lot less than the average Pennsylvanian who uses 20,301 kg but is still a lot more than the worldwide average 3,791 kg. For transportation I use 4,655 kg while the regions average is 5,337 kg. At home I use 4,952 kg of CO2 but the average Pennsylvanian uses 7,841 kg of CO2. With food my number is 1,168, which is a lot lower than the average 4,638 because I’m vegetarian and meat has a large Carbon footprint. Purchases are also a lot less my number is 496 kg and the average Pennsylvanian uses 2,486 kg. One area I can work to lower my carbon footprint is transportation by taking public transportation and driving less. Seeing what other people around the world are doing to lessen their carbon footprint is inspiring and will show me more ways I can in my daily life.

Tziporah, May 14, 2013

Hi, my name is Tziporah and I live in Philadelphia, PA. Based on my input, my total footprint is 17704 kg of CO₂ per year, compared to an average of 20301 kg for Pennsylvania, USA. I have 8381 kg for transportation. For home my I have 6315 kg. I have 1748 kg for food. For purchases I have 1261 kg. I think that my transportation score is so high because my mother’s car is not as energy efficient as other cars are. My home score is also high because I think that I leave appliances on and don’t unplug them. My food score is low because I am vegetarian and eat no meat. I think that my purchase score is high because I buy new things a lot of the time.

    One way you can cut down on your carbon footprint with an inefficient car is by walking and biking whenever you can. You had a really good idea with unplugging appliances. Your score for food is really low so being a vegetarian is really helping cut back your carbon output.

Sam M, May 14, 2013

Hello, my name is Sam. I live in the USA in Pennsylvania. The school I go to is AIM Academy. The school is for dyslexia students. My carbon footprint is 33854 kg per year. The reason why I believe my footprint so high is because as a family we are not the most green but we are no really bad. My transportation footprint is 11294 kg. The reason why I believe it is so high is because I travel far to school almost everyday and I do not have a hybrid or an electric car. Here is my home footprint 17769 kg her is also my food 3975 kg and my home 816 kg. The reason why my footprint is so big is because in America we tend to use more then other countries so I was not surprised on my carbon footprint. A way I think I could make my footprint smaller is to get better at recycling.

    I have the same issue. My carbon footprint is also very high because of my transportation. It is unfortunate because there is not a lot I can personally do. I do not own my own car so my parents control how many MPG's they want in a car. One thing that would be helpful is carpooling, but it is difficult also because not many kids in my neighborhood go to my school.
  • Sam M Sam M May 17, 2013
    I have the same issue for instance I do not have anyone to car pool. I also live far from my school. But we could save energy other areas.
