Steven Fadel, Oct. 9, 2012

Hello everybody, my name is Steven Fadel, and its really cool to meet you guys so let me tell you a bit of myself and my footprint.Im from Florida,our regional carbon footprint is 13,115. However my footprint is at 9425 kg which is greatly lower. My averages throughout the categories were all low except for my home,which really killed me with a whopping 50.8% of my entire footprint. I was quite shocked persnally as it really opened my eyes to the amount of damage im doing alone by just being at my house, with the a\c on most of the time.

Hello, all my averages are decently small except my home emissions which goes above my region’s average by about 1000 lb,and I was proud of my transportation because it was exceptionally smaller than my region’s average (mostly because I carpool frequently). My total emissions were overall reasonably smaller than the average. (total emissions 21328 lb/ 9674 kg) (American average 28913 lb/ 12849 kg)

Side Note: I heard about an incident that happened yesterday involving some students from my school, I would like to apologize for the rude comments and other things they did.

I am Williams Garcia. As of now, I am a sophomore in Jose Marti MAST 6-12 Academy. I reside in Miami, Florida. In short, my carbon footprint was below average in transportation, beyond the average at home, a little more in food and below in purchases.

My carbon footprint was realitvely low for my area with a total of 7862 kg as opposed to roughly 13000 kg of an average american, which i shocking because after comparing the average american to myself, i found mine to be MUCH lower, mainly due to the few meats i eat, and the little purchases i make through out the year, i was also astounded to see that despite how well this looks when compared to my country (the United States of America) its actually quite average when compared to most Euro countries, i didnt realize how high the average footprint the the U.S was compared to the rest of the world, i guess i do now.

My Carbon Foot Print over all is over 9,000kg. My sectional averages were mostly under the Floridian averages except for food which I was immensely over for my food choices. My House energy consumption was almost average but relatively 500 kg. What surprised me kind of was the fact that my transportation was really lower considering that the flight question which i assumed that would balance out my lack of car transportation. My purchases were a little more than i expected considering that I buy almost nothing.

Well my footprint was over 17,000 because i love to be in my home. For food my average is nearly doubled then then my region average. But my purchases were very low almost cut in half. With my transportation that one was also cut in half but over all my home was over 3,000kg over the average person in my region. I think that the average Floridian would consume allot more than what the region average is. Some of the questions on the survey I didn’t really know some of the questions in my opinion some of them not even an average American knows.

Hi!

I had a pretty high carbon footprint when it came to transportations, but a small bit under average in food and home omissions. This is mostly because I travel quite a lot, especially this last year. Other than that there’s not that much to change, I wouldn’t like to stop eating meat since I simply love it too much…

Cheers!

My carbon footprint is 3579 Kg above average mostly due to part of the home calculation which is 3025 Kg above average.

My carbon footprint was below average, this was probably due to the foloowing involved factors:
- I don’t go out much, thus i hardly use transportation of any kind.
- I take short warm showers (around 5 minutes)
