Hello, my name is Kegan S. from the USA. When I took the test, it asked how many calories a day we intake. On average a girl eats 1600, and a boy eats 1800. So boys eat more, leading to a higher carbon footprint. So boys produce more carbon than girls, especially for the food category. Does the calories you intake really affect your carbon footprint. Does it mean girls are less carbon users? What do you think? Is more food lead to a higher carbon footprint?
I support the consumption of meat and fish because it not only provides many essential protein for the body, but the meat is accompanied by essential amino acids needed. The 20% is pure meat protein. These substances are essential for growth, defenses and tissue regeneration.
Fish is one of the healthiest foods and complete, consume twice a week brings huge health benefits thanks to its nutrient composition.
One hundred grams of fish provides on average 18 grams of high biological value protein, ie protein which is easily assimilated by our body as well as being easy to digest
Hi. I am Meghan M from the US. Hunger can cause serious mental and physical issues. In the first 1.44 min. of this video their are some important statistics about hunger. It tell who and how hunger affect people. After watching this video it sparked an idea that since people who go hungry often have these health issues their children and future generation will most likely be stuck in this recurring cycle because they cannot focus in school so they can’t go on to college not just because of money but also their grades aren’t at an acceptable level. This why people like us have to do something about it because we are lucky enough to not have to worry about where our next meal is going to come from. by donating food to food banks and handing leftovers or a snack pack taped on to a water bottle to people standing on the side of the road can make a huge difference not only in their health, but it can brighten their day to.
Hello! My name is Tolu L-Usa from Houston. When I calculated my carbon footprint I found out that my calculation for the food portion was below average to a average citizen in the U.S. I was really suprised because I thought I ate a lot, but when I looked back and analyzed my results I finally started to understand. I found out that I since I don’t eat alot of processed foods, and my family isn’t eating a lot of pork. It was also below average because my family always tries to throw away the least amount of food when we are eating, because we don’ t like to waste food. I think eveyone should start watching out for the amounts of food they throw away, becasue so much food is wasted everyday and that food could actually help people lacking food.
Hi. This is Meghan M from Houston. I recently watched I a video about the impact on the enviornment from just a cheese burger. This caught my atention mainly because I didn’t realize how something so tiny in our everyday live can emit so much carbon. This got me thinking what else in my everyday life do I not realize is hurting the enviornment. I found out that almost everything we do effects our carbon footprint including eating, drinking, and playing sports. I exercise almost everyday and I realized that every time I exercise I release 625ml of CO2 into the atmosphere per minute. A lot of the time we know that we are releasing CO2 but we don’t realize how much and the way it effects our ecosystem. This video showed me that i need to look carefully at everything thing I am doing and try to still maintain a normal life while helping the earth.
hi guys! im rachel P from houston and my food portion of my carbon footprint was below average. I think this is because I come from a family who always takes home their food from restaraunts we eat at and also because we don’t eat alot. We always keep our leftovers and try to throw away the least amount of food possible. As america’s obesity rates have been escalating over the past few decades as drive thrus have become more common, world hunger has also increased. This shocked me and made me want to help out! If more americans would take a few hours out of their week to volenteer at a local food bank then we at least are on the right track to decreasing world hunger. Also influencing others to eat healthier at churches and charity organizations can actually influence us to make better choices when it comes to being green and healthful. “The faster we start to make a difference and change our ways the easier it will be to avoid this “perfect storm” we are about to enter”
Hi im cole and I live in the US. I agree with Evan that the US does pollute and destroy the earth a lot(even though they have acts and laws that they have been put in place to protect and save our earth) and that each person can use less harmful materials. I believe that each and every person should do something or change something in their life so that the Earth benefits from it. the only thing is that we humans are always looking for a better quality life, and in that search we tend to overuse and abuse our finite environment. So its up to us to figure out the balance between human health(quality of life) and the environment.
