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.

    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.

    I found it fascinating that my footprint is significantly lower than yours even though I live in the United States. I find it interesting that your transportation is so high, maybe you drive a lot but you don't purchase things often. Maybe you can carpool with people to cut down your transportation emissions.
  • Cody Young Cody Young May 14, 2013
    I live in the United States as well and my carbon footprint as about the same as yours. My transportation is about 12000kg of CO2 though. Much higher than yours. It's probably due to traveling back home to China a lot.
  • Tziporah Tziporah May 17, 2013
    Hi Kim, I live in the United States also and my carbon footprint is mostly the same even though I live in PA. Maybe if you walked, biked, or took the bus a lot then your carbon footprint will lower.

    Wow that so different compared to my result. I find that people in Europe travel a lot less so their transportation category is a lot smaller. I recently spent 7 weeks in paris for an exchange and saw the different lifestyles that you guys live compared to us in North America.

    That is very good. I live in the United States and the average at my school is 20,000 of CO2. It is because I travel a lot.

    Hi Adrien, It's a shame that your home is heated with gaz. Sadly, it contributes greatly to your carbon footprint. Everything else is quite low though so good job.

    I really wish we could live the way you do in France. I try to make my ways easier on the environment, but society here in the United States is hard to adjust to without using a lot of energy. Hopefully someday we will change our ways.

    I live in the United States and my carbon footprint is a lot smaller then yours. I guess that would be because I don't really drive.
