I learned that my carbon footprint is really high and i think i could bring it down because i burn wood and i could not burn wood, i could get a heater.

    Interesting when i clicked on the burning wood one when i was putting in my data i noticed that it went up by using wood instead of a heater

This is a game called energyville. What you have to do is where you name your city and then you take items like natural gas, coal, and a dam and drag it into the city. Once you dragged in the items you move onto the next level. But it only goes up to level 2! Have Fun :)

Alexandra T United States, Feb. 15, 2012

Hi I’m Alexandra from NYC and my carbon footprint is 8878. It’s pretty high but lower than the average New Yorker. My main problem was that I fly to europe often to visit family. I always try to do the little things like turning off the lights when I leave the room, and we don’t own a car.

    Here in Ohio, my carbon footprint was a little over 11,000 where my friend's was a little over 21,000. Here, our main problem is traveling. It is so hard to get anywhere by walking living in such a rural area

Hello ^.^
I’m relativley new here and have learnd…nothing.
Gys, is it just me or do we discuss and comment the same things all the time ? Seriously, that’s boring. Sure we should work for our planets future but
Get out and come with some own ideas that can make us live wihtout using fossil energy. Like new materials, energy or motors. That isn’t so difficult and it make this more fun!

    O.K., here's a thought. I'm wondering about the general affluence of the area you all live in. Are any of you living in wealthy suburbs, or do some of you live in rural towns where people rely on manufacturing to make a living? I think if I had students in a suburb of Milwaukee or Madison, WI, the kids would have much higher footprints, because they would have more money to spend in general.

    Can you tell me about the community efforts that are being made in order to become “greener?” What role are politics playing in your countries as we try to become less dependent on fossil fuels?

Hi, my name is Melanie and i’m from U.S.A. My total on my carbon footprint is 13,623kg (28,945lb.) My carbon is high because the normal amount of carbon is 17,807kg (39.257.) I think it is high because I only have 4 people in my whole family so want to make that a little less than what it is now. I am willing to try to not watch T.V all day I will take a walk instead. I was also shocked about my Total.

    ya I too have for people in my family. I think there are a couple of things such as turning off the tv and water that can really help

Ruta M-Lithuania, Feb. 14, 2012

Hi everyone! My name is Ruta and I’m from Lithuania. In this project I’m new person. I’m very happy that my school participating in this project. When I did these questions, i was shocked because I didn’t expect such high performance. I try to save energy: never leave turn computer, if i don’t use it, in my home are some energy-saving light bulbs, when i go out from room, i never leave lights on and ect. I’m going to start sort the rubbish. Have a nice day!

my carbon footprint is way more than it should be, but I’m going try really hard to lower it. It might be hard to make changes to my life but it will be worth it.

hello to everyone…my name is büşra, a student from Turkey.we participated in this activity last week. my total footprint is 5689 that is higher than my country’s avarage. that is mostly because of using wood and coal to heat our house.
ı promise I am going to turn off the lights when i am not using and use less water.
Let’s save our Earth because we need it:))

    The US's Carbon average is around 17,000, but mine was about 12,000
  • Kristen M-United States Kristen M-United States Feb. 14, 2012
    Yes, due to this project I really have been gaining a better perception of the vast impact my own personal carbon footprint has on the rest of the world. Every little step definitely makes a difference!
  • Maja A-Sweden Maja A-Sweden Feb. 15, 2012
    the Swedish Cardbon average is around 12,000… mine was around 7,000 :)
