Dear friends;
I’m Dani and I live in Zaragoza. I’ve been doing a research about my carbon footprint during the last year. The result show I’m, more o less, in the Spanish average although I think my consumption might be lower. My total mark is 6172 kilograms which are distributed as follows:
- My transport mark is 474 kilograms so I’m well below the Spanish average (1885 kilograms). This is because I haven’t car and, when I go to the waterpolo training, I normally don´t take vehicles.
- My home mark is 1974 kilograms. I’m above the average (1462 kilograms) because I live in a attached and I have more expenses than people who live in apartments.
- My food mark is 3496 kilograms so I’m well above the average (2620 kilograms). I don’t understand why. I don’t think I’m a fat person or eat a lot. I’ve a good diet, I eat all kinds of proteins and keep a healthy body so I guess to be in the average I must be an anorexic person.
- My purchases mark is 228 kilograms and I’m well below the average (1001 kilograms). The truth is that I don’t know very well why about this but I supposed I’m very intelligent and ecological.
What can I do to improve my carbon footprints marks? THANK YOU VERY MUCH FRIENDS!
A LOT OF HUGSGUYS!!

    Hello Dani and welcome to the ISCFC and Einztein!

    I would guess that your food footprint is high because you eat a lot of meat. True?

    If you registered while using the footprint calculator and saved your values, then you can log back on and play around with your answers in the food section and see how your footprint changes.

    In particular, you could go to the third Food question (where you talk about the break-down of your diet) and see what would happen if you replaced some of your meat meals with vegetarian ones.

    And also you can use blankes instead of the electric heath :)

Hello, my name is Lucía Magallón. I’m from Zaragoza, Spain.

After making the test, I think my carbon footprint isn’t very high. It’s average, but it could be lower.

I think at home I can reduce the used energy. I could stay less hours per day in the computer, o watch only one hour the television. What’s more, I could use less hot water when I take a shower. In relation with the transportation, I don’t usually use the car. I usually travel in the public transportation, normally the bus.

In conclusion, everyone can reduce their carbon dioxide emissions.

Hello everyone ! Since my teacher has told me about this project I was really excited . I think this projet will help many people to understand how to become far more aware of the environmental issues. My total carbon foot print is 5984 kg of CO2 per year. I hope that after this project I will reduce my carbon footprint as in the present I have a high consume.

    Hi Liana, I completely agree with you, this project can convice many people to start caring for our future. Without the beauty of nature and natural processes this world won't be the same. So, I think it's time, although it's maybe a little late, to repair all the damage we have caused.
  • Liana P-Romania Liana P-Romania Feb. 23, 2012
    Never it`s too late. The planet can be saved as the nature is on our side. The earth want to be saved and I little work done by us will change many things in a good way. We can enjoy the beauty of the nature many,many years if we know how to maintain it.

Russians drill into Lake Vostok, begin search for life under Antartica’s surface:

Russian researchers reported Wednesday that they had reached Lake Vostok, which is located in the central part of Atartica, approximately 800 miles East of the South Pole. This ancient freshwater lake was buried under 12,365 feet of ice, and is believed to have been cut off from the atmosphere for at least 14 million years - a pristine body of water untouched by light or wind. They want to know what type of microbial life — bacteria too small to see — might exist there.

If scientists find these tiny germs in Lake Vostok, it bolsters already strong hope that elsewhere in our solar system, life also might exist where once it didn’t seem possible.

Hi! My name is Miguel Martínez Navarro Gonçalves Ciordia Gonzalez, I´m form Zaragoza Spain. The last week in the sochool we should a work for know our carboon footprint. The mine is 5979.
This proyect is very interseting for arouse the students with the environment and reduce our pollution. In my opinion the consume by person is very much in Spain. For curiosity I look for the consum in EE. UU. is surprising, in some states the consum is very lower but in others states (Washington, New York…) the consume is the higest of the world.
At the transports I have a high consume because I have travelled to London by plane.
I could reduce consume in home if I would haves used less hours the computer.
My consume in food and purchases is optim so I could reduce a little more but it is good

    Compared to the average of your country thats good! One way of reducing your transportation co2 use, is that you could ride a bike to and from nearby places. Keep it up! ;)

Hi! My name is Esteban, I’m from Zaragoza, Spain. Last week I did a test to calculate the CO2 I produce, and the result was 6305 kg/year.
It is a little lower than the average of my country (6968 kg/year).
I think this is very much CO2/person, we are so many people in the world and lot of people produces even more than the average.
This project is useful cause now we realize what we produce and now we can try to reduce the pollution we create. I hope produce less CO2 in the future.

    I participate in this project second year and I really feel the benefit of it. My CO2 emissions had decreased, so I hope that this project will help you to. Wish you good luck with that!
