TaskUsing the Global Footprint Network website you will complete a set of tasks and answer a set of questions (below (Ecological Footprint Template) related to your own ecological footprint. When complete, please submit to this appropriate drop box. 
To get started, watch this short video on the Global Footprint Network.
Ecological Footprint TemplateUsing this link, click on the United States and record the following for the most current year available:
Biocapacity per person:Ecological Footprint per person:
Biocapacity Reserve ( )/ Deficit (-):

Choose any other county and repeatCountry chosen:
Biocapacity per person:
Ecological Footprint per person:
Biocapacity Reserve ( )/ Deficit (-):

How did the country that you selected compare to the US with respect to the values? What factors do you think influenced your findings?
Using this link, enter in your personal information and calculate your own ecological footprint.If everyone lived like you, how many Earth’s would we need?
What is your ecological footprint in global hectares?
What is your carbon footprint (CO2 emissions in tons per year)
What is your carbon footprint (P% of your total ecological footprint)

Using this link investigate the state of the nation and the “the state of the states” by examining the chart that outlines the ecological wealth of the United States and answering the following questions:How does your ecological footprint compare to that of the United States?Suggest possible reasons for the differences between your own footprint and the USA average

How does your ecological footprint compare to that of the state in which you live?Suggest possible reasons for the differences between your own footprint and your state

Choose another state. How does your ecological footprint compare to that of the chosen state? (Be sure to list the state that you chose)Suggest possible reasons for the differences between your own footprint and your chosen state

Summary Question: To summarize the experience of examining the ecological impact of your own county, state and personal impact, please address the following reflection questions:What is your reaction to your own ecological footprint? Were you surprised? Was it higher or lower than you expected? Summarize your feelings and thoughts about the experience of determining your own environmental impact.
What is your reaction to your state and nation? Were you surprised? Was it higher or lower than you expected? Summarize your feelings and thoughts about the experience of determining the environmental impact of your state and your country on the world.
What (if anything) do you think people should do? Should people attempt to reduce their ecological footprints and impact on the environment? Why or why not? If you do feel that they should; what are some ways that humans could curb their consumption? If you do not feel that humans should attempt to reduce their impact on the environment, explain.
