I think that this project is very good for know about ecologyc. in my coutntry people have to think about it alot. I see that people don’t talk seriously about environment or recycle. in my school, people do things like recycle paper or using the light only when we need it. and we turn of the computers when we don’t use them too.

Hello my name is Francisca and I live in Spain. I do not know if my ecological footprint is less than the average for Spain but I guess I am below average because I am quite aware of the serious problems that the environment suffers and recycle at home, close the tap while I brush teeth, I put the dishwasher when full, and my transportation is the bicycle or public transport,although this is also related to the place where I live, because if I lived in China for example would run my bike and ecological footprint would be minor and lived in an underdeveloped country like the Congo would be much lower because the houses do not have artificial lights or running water. I take care of the environment, but also know that many people do it and we can allget better.
I’m A. Sandovalin, since I met demi ecological footprint results, my good habits have improved ecological increased.
one thing that caught my attention was that the amount of CO2 that produced my feed was higher than pruducia my movement and my house.
I now try to adopt habits such as reusing and recycling paper, turning off lights, electronic devices when not’m using.
truly the realization of this study has amazed me since I checked the number of people who are willing has to do something to remedy this problem that affects us all.
Hello, my name is Irene and I’m from Spain. My carbon dioxide emissions are lower than my country’s average. I think we should be more concerned about this subject because it affects all of us. So we must do our best to solve this kind of problems. For example, we should use public transport more often or remember to turn off the lighs when we don’t need them. Bye ––––––––––––––––––––––––– Hello, my name is Rosa and I’m from Zaragoza (Spain). I produce more emissions than my country’s average. I’ll try to produce less carbon dioxide and reduce my carbon footprint. In order to do it, I’m going to recycle wathever I’m able to. I think it’s very important because if we keep on doing this, we will destroy our planet. Good bye –––––––––––––––––––––––––- Hi, my name is Lucia and I’m from Zaragoza. My carbon footprint is lower than my country’s one, not only on transport and purchases but also in house and food. I’m going to try to bring my own bags which are reusable. Despite of this fact I think that I can’t reduce more my carbon footprint because I usually recycle all packaging I’m able to. See you.
ISCFC (carbon footprint challenge) participants… here is an excerpt from a thoughtful article in The Scientist that discusses the indirect impact that climate change may have on human health.
The Coming Health Crisis
By Samuel S. Myers and Aaron Bernstein
“Human activity is disrupting Earth’s climate, and the rising emissions of greenhouse gases are accelerating that disruption. (See “Our Changing Climate” box below) Some of the health consequences of climate change are straightforward: warmer temperatures, changes in the hydrologic cycle, increased ground-level ozone, and enhanced pollen production will increase exposure to heat stress, alter patterns of infectious disease, and compromise air quality.
However, we believe that there is another threat, one that is orders of magnitude more potent than those which have been emphasized to date. Here we argue that it is the indirect impacts of climate change—large-scale alterations to Earth’s natural systems—that pose the greatest risk to human health. These changes are curtailing access to water and to food and are undermining the very concept of stable homes, yet have received scant attention in the literature…”
