Seif Korsten, May 5, 2012

Hello, I’m Seif Korsten, I live in Cairo, Egypt and I go to the American International School here in Cairo. We had to complete a survey in class to calculate our carbon footprint. After knowing Egypt’s national average, I wasn’t too surprised of how low it was, I wasn’t too surprised either when I got my own results. Transportation is very important for me, and I had a couple of flights last year, so that increased my carbon footprint immensly. I also drive daily up and down to school and home (at least, my driver does). I also like to go out every Thursday now and then, then also adds up the the CF I had in total. It’s unfortunate, but I plan on improving myself this year! I’m not planning to take any flights this year anymore, this should help me improve my personal CF prodigiously. I am personally afraid that I will never be able to make it under the national average’s CF, I would have to “tweak” my life to be able to achieve that.

    Great thinking Seif but i think instead of not traveling you can just use your car less to go to places and try to use the bus more. Well done.
