Earth Day Activitists!



We can become Earth Activitists if we would like to save our planet. We are studying sustainability this term so here is a starter...
Do the quiz [it has a cool flash animation] to see how many planets are required to support your lifestyle... you maybe shocked!
The concept of an ecological footprint is one you need to understand. :-)

Here is some extra info for brainiacs:

I did Earth Hour too, but I don't know about that quiz, it is for people in the US or Aussie, and also for adults and stuff. My inaccurate result was 1.9 planets (as if, I at least try to stay partly green). :-P

Dear OtherBoy - I think the quiz means that if everyone shared your lifestyle [as stated by you in the quiz] then we would need 1.9 planets like Earth to support our selves sustainably.
:-)
What say you?

1.9 planets!!! WOW! That is sooo Amazing!

QueenBead said...

Um... What Quiz

MrWoody said...

I use up 3.2 Earths !!!! NOooOOOOOO!!!

Drumbledoor said...

I use 2.9 Earths.
it's not very accurate though 'coz it's only 4 people in the U.S. and Aussie.
And so, I had to put that we live in New South Wales.

I use 1.7 and I moderated them to see how low it could go and I got to the end where everything was down and it still used 1.1 earths omg that is alot.

Midnight Baloney said...

That's a fun quiz, though I didn't know the answers to half the questions. I use up 2.9 planets.

Mystery Man said...

I can't believe it if everyone lived like me we would need 3.5 earths I feel so ashamed and as if I have let everyone down.
