I’m Living All Too Well, Apparently

I rest­ed. Yay. All hail the pow­er of Nyquil.

And the stuff I’ve done today isn’t real­ly clean­ing. It’s bare maintenance—the stuff required so that I can stand to be here.

If every­one lived like you, we would need 3.3 planets. 

Cat­e­go­ry glob­al hectares 

Food 2.8
Mobil­i­ty 0.1
Shel­ter 1.5
Goods/Services 1.5

Total Foot­print 5.9
In com­par­i­son, the aver­age eco­log­i­cal foot­print in your coun­try is 9.7 glob­al hectares per person.
World­wide, there exist 1.8 bio­log­i­cal­ly pro­duc­tive glob­al hectares per person.

I think the con­ve­nience foods real­ly kicked up the score. That and liv­ing in a sin­gle-fam­i­ly house. I’m not sure how they arrived at the “goods/services” figure.
