Rebecca Godin, May 13, 2013

Hi, my name is Rebecca and my total carbon footprint is 11560 kg. The average footprint in Ontario is 12000 kg. I am under the average, transportation was my highest out of all the four categories, 5645 kg. For home/energy 3592 kg, food 1622 kg and 601 kg for purchases. I was surprised about the amount CO2 released from transportation, but I live further away from the school.

Frank Dadparvar, May 13, 2013

Hello my name is Frank and I live in Philadelphia. This project was very interesting because I did not know that people could contaminate so much. Different countries contaminate more or less depending but in my opinion the country that contaminates the most is America. My biggest contamination problem provoked by me is transportation. I am from another country so when I travel we use a lot of gas and they are very long trips. During the next years I will not contaminate as much because I won’t travel.

    Hi Frank, don't worry about transportation because I have the same problem. It is a good thing you won't travel as much, since that will lower that amount of gas you use.
  • erika wang erika wang May 14, 2013
    Hey Frank, I agree with you. I also travel a lot. I usually fly international flights and if I am not flying I take a lot of road trips to Los Angeles. Good to know your trying to travel less to reduce c02!

I found that my transportation is very high due to the fact that I travel 50km to school in my pick up truck. I also found that around my house is very high does anyone have any suggestions?

    For one thing you can get a bicycle for transportation. And for your house you can turn off the lights when you are not using them, as well as turning of the water when not in use.
  • Rebecca Godin Rebecca Godin May 13, 2013
    Maybe use different types of electric bulbs that are more energy efficient and make sure not to forget to turn of the lights at your home.

Katie S, May 13, 2013

Hi, my name is Katie,

For my carbon footprint I did not except a specific number to have as my total carbon footprint. For my transportation: 715kg, Home: 34,006kg, Food: 2,991 and Purchases: 516kg. My highest section was home, for home I can try to recycle the best that I can, and lower the home section for my footprint. Shockingly, my purchases were lower then I expected them to be. Personally I thought that the total amount of money that I spend a year for clothes was a higher number. Food was lower than average, and finally for my transportation, I could try my best to bike or walk to shorter distance places instead of being driven there.

    Well I think that you just need to bring down your home kg and bring up the rest of them by changing what your doing now.
  • Sam M Sam M May 17, 2013
    Hi, katie you travel is really high maybe you should try car pooling more.
  • AIM Academy AIM Academy May 17, 2013
    Chase Wayne, thank you for your recommendation. I could try to bring down my home kg by changing the lightbulbs to more energy efficient lights. As well as turning off lights more often. Another way to decrease the kg of my home is by taking shorter showers then I do now. However, I would not be able to bring up the rest of my data because then that would make my total footprint higher then it is now.

Onassis G, May 13, 2013

Hi my name is Onassis G. and I’m so exited to be doing an international project! I’m 14 years old and in 8th grade at AIM Academy. As a young teenager I thought my carbine footprint was going to be way higher then the average, but to my surprise I was just under the average to the people of Pennsylvania. The average person in Pennsylvania uses 20301 kg. My total turned out to only be 19936 kg. For transportation the average person in Pennsylvania uses 5337 kg. I use 8579, which is 3242 kg more then what I should be using. For home the average person in Pennsylvania uses 7841 kg. I only use 4735 kg, which is 3106 kg less, then the average person in Pennsylvania. For food the average person in Pennsylvania uses 4638 kg. I use 6222 kg, which is over the average by 1584 kg. For purchases the average person in Pennsylvania uses 2486 kg. I got 401 kg, which is 2085 kg under the average. I hope that I by seeing everyone’s post they can help me lower my score some more to help save our environment!

    Wow! Your results were very different from mine! How interesting to see your experiences!
  • Billy- Bob Johns Billy- Bob Johns May 13, 2013
    wow your results are the almost the same as mine! You should try and use less transportation and eat less
  • Chase Wayne Chase Wayne May 13, 2013
    Well I think it is a good thing that you want to save the environment. And also I like what you score shows on how you have almost the same as the average person, but it can also be good to lower your score.

Davide c, May 13, 2013

Hi,
My name is davide cervelli, I’m 16 years old, I’m a student at IIS Meneghini Secondary School in Edolo, a small town in the north of Italy. My total carbon footprint is 8068 kg of CO₂ per year, in italy the average footprint is 8181 kg. In my house there aren’t any solar panels and for the electricity I use idroeletric energy. I always walk to school.
The home is 4136 because the reason is that in winter it is very cold and I use a lot ot woods for heat.

    Hi David, I think it is a good thing that you walk to school. And I think that one way you can stay warm during the winter is by using hot water bottles under your bed so that it is warm when you go to bed.
  • Liliah Andrews Liliah Andrews May 15, 2013
    Hi Davide! I also use wood for heat in my home, causing my score to be really high! I think that you walking to school is really great.

Molly C, May 12, 2013

Hi my name is Molly and my total Carbon Footprint was 19750kg. For transportation I got 6870kg, for Home I got 8610kg, for food I got 3455kg, and finally for purchases I got 815kg. I was surprised that my total was under the average for Pennsylvania. The thing that I was most surprised at though was my purchases. I thought that I buy a lot but I guess not! My average purchase compared to other in my region were no where near the same! I think that one way I could lower my transportation is if I walked or biked to some of the places I go to since they aren’t far at all.

    Hey Molly! According to your post your post I see that the highest is the transportation. Why don't you use the public transportation when you don't have much free time or your destination is far away instead of car? ;) So this way you 'll dicrease your transportation carbon footprint :)

Arman M, May 11, 2013

My Name is Arman M and my total footprint is 22693 kg of co2. Transportation is 11321 kg and its about 5000 kg more than the average. Home is 9176 kg and more than 2000 kg more than the average. Food is 1678 kg and almost 3000 kg less than the average. Purchases are 518 kg and almost 2000 kg less than the average. The total average for Pennsylvania is 20301 and it is over than the average. I wasn’t that surprise it was more than the average but I was more surprise it was 2392 kg more than the average. I thought it would be little bit over by 200 kg to 1000 kg more. I think that I don’t travel as much as other people but my travel number is 11321 is about 5000 more than the average. And the same thing happens with the house as the travel for kg co2 for being way more than average and not being about the same average. I think that I should lower the house and the traveling kg co2 to help the environment.

    If you really believe that you travel less than the average Pennsylvanian, yet your amount is is higher than the average by 5000 kg, you should re-input your data so that your result is more accurate. You should also start recording what you do that causes your footprint to be as high as it is.
  • Tyler Barban Tyler Barban May 13, 2013
    I agree with Ramy, you should maybe retake the test to see if you get different results.
  • Arman M Arman M May 16, 2013
    Hello Ramy and Tyler, I travel a few times per year. I some time I travel less than other.

Oliver B, May 11, 2013

Hello my Name is Oliver B my carbon footprint was 13,014 for Transportation 3,303 for Home 5,200 for Food 590 for Purchase. I was way over for Transportation and really under for purchases the others were about the same. I wasn’t really surprised that my transportation was high because I travel so much everyday. I was really surprised that my Home and Food were lower than the average. I should try to go less places to bring down my transportation this would lower my carbon footprint.

    Maybe for transportation you could try to take a bus or bike to the places you want to go, that might reduce your CO2 emissions
  • francesca francy francesca francy May 14, 2013
    Hello Oliver.
    I also have a carbon footprint high about transportation because I live in a small village in the mountain and I need to use car or bus to go shopping or school.
    also carbon footprint in home is high because I use a lot of heating in winter.
    The issue of travelling less to lower the level of carbon in the transport sector is very helpful, It’s good advice! Thanks!
  • Oliver B Oliver B May 14, 2013
    Thanks for the comments! I live so far from school and it 2 times per day so it adds up quickly. I live 22.9 miles from my school so its crazy! Thanks again for the suggestions.
    -Oliver
